Full day tour of Utah, Omaha & US airborne sectors
With this Normandy battlefield tour, you will discover on a full day the key beaches, sites and museums linked to D-Day.
The tour will first take you to Omaha, where the deadliest of the landings took place. You will learn more about the landing and the following days at the D-Day museum right next to the beach.
Then you will discover Utah beach, the second beach where the American troops landed. There, the "Musée du Débarquement" will tell you all about the planning and the execution of D-Day from the American side. Your guide will also take you to the US military cemetery where you can pay your respects to the ones who fell during D-Day and the battle of Normandy that followed.
To finish the American sector, you will head to the Pointe du Hoc, a breathtaking cliff offering lunar landscapes and a magnificent viewpoint over the English Channel.
At the end of your sightseeing tour of Normandy, you will go to the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, heart of the jump zone for the 82nd Airborne U.S. forces. Indeed, the D-Day landings did not only happen from the sea! Paratroopers rained on this village, and one of them famously got caught in the tower of the church. The Airborne Museum retraces the involvement of the paratroopers and the airborne forces in the D-Day landings.
