Want to take advantage of your stay in Paris to visit other emblematic sites in France? If there’s something you’ve got to see it’s Normandy. The vacation spot for Parisians, Normandy is also where the Western Allied beach landings occurred (a crucial turning point during WWII) and are now commemorated with museums and memorials. With ParisCityVision you can reserve a guided visit or a sightseeing tour of the Normandy region in order to admire its peaceful wooded countryside and immerse yourself in some of France’s most moving history. Within the comfort of a luxurious and air-conditioned bus that leaves from Paris, you’ll take in views of the French countryside throughout your trip. To ensure maximum comfort, pick-up and drop-off at your Parisian hotel is also possible.
Upon arrival, a guide-interpreter will take you around to discover the landing beaches, the Caen Memorial, and the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer to make sense of this unprecedented historical event. Pockets of free time will give you the chance to take some photos, walk around on Omaha Beach and at Pointe du Hoc. The all-inclusive, full-day package, which can be tailored to and made private for small groups, comprises eating a traditional French meal at a restaurant in Caen and discovering Arromanches and the Canadian Memorial at Juno Beach.
ParisCityVision’s sightseeing tours that take place over several days are also available and will provide you with the opportunity to discover even more of France before heading to the Normandy region, like Saint Malo and Mont Saint Michel (a 2-day trip with an overnight stay in a 3-star hotel) or a guided visit of the famous Loire Valley châteaux (a 3-4 day trip that includes touring Normandy).
Going on a guided tour of Normandy’s D-Day beaches with ParisCityVision means retracing the steps of the 150,000 brave American, British and Canadian soldiers who disembarked on June 6, 1944, to liberate France from German occupation. It also means reliving D-Day and remembering those who fought and who gave their life in the name of liberty. It’s also the chance to thank them by gathering before the Mémorial de la Paix de Caen (the Caen Peace Memorial) and to stand before the graves of those buried at the Saint-Laurent American Cemetery.
The Discover Normandy Sightseeing Tour also allows tourists to visit a beautiful region highly appreciated by those in search of fresh air and stunning nature. Don’t deny yourself the pleasure of enjoying French gastronomy, visiting small, charming fishing ports, admiring homes covered in flowers, touring beaches and quaint villages. This tour is simply another way to render homage to France and its art de vivre.
