Bayeux: American D-Day Sites in Normandy Full-Day Tour

1. Bayeux: American D-Day Sites in Normandy Full-Day Tour

Meet your guide at Place de Québec and then begin your D-Day exploration adventure, retracing history as you uncover the day of June 6, 1944. The first stop is at the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, the heart of the jump zone for the 82nd Airborne U.S. forces. Listen to stories of how paratroopers rained on the village, and how one of them famously got caught in the tower of the church. Visit Utah beach, the second location where American troops landed on D-Day. Pay a visit to the Utah Beach Museum and learn more about the fascinating history. Then, continue to Pointe du Hoc, a breathtaking cliff offering lunar landscapes and a magnificent viewpoint over the English Channel.  The site was built as a key point of the Atlantic Wall by the Germans because it was the highest point between the Omaha and Utah beaches and provided a great observation spot to notice any arrivals from the sea. Head to Omaha beach, where the deadliest landings of the day took place. From your guide, learn about the landings here and the soldiers who risked their lives. Your D-Day sightseeing tour of Normandy ends with a visit to the US military cemetery where you will have the chance to pay your respects and honor the soldiers of World War ll.

What people are saying about Colleville-sur-Mer

It is a fast paced day but the guide was excellent in answering all our questions about D-day. I thought the day was an excellent tool for people who had limited time but wanted to key all the key American D-day operations. Forrest-California
