7:00 am: Be met in the lobby of your hotel in Paris.
Relive June 6, 1944, and discover what it is known as “The Longest Day”. Start your journey with a visit of Arromanches. You can see this lovely village and the remains of the artificial harbor. Depending on your schedule and your preferences from this point in Arromanches, you can easily go on to the other landing beaches and other main World War II sites. Then visit Omaha beach, the beach which is depicted in the opening scenes of Steven Spielberg's, “Saving Private Ryan”. Omaha beach witnessed the most vicious fighting of World War II. Approximately 34 000 soldiers from the 1st, 2nd and 29th Infantry Divisions landed on this beach on D-Day. The beach was covered in anti-tank and anti-landing craft obstacles. Then, drive to the “Pointe du Hoc”. On this particularly favorable site, the Germans had built a heavy artillery battery capable of raking a wide stretch of coastline. It represented a formidable threat to the two beaches where American troops were going to land: Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east. Enjoy lunch at leisure in a restaurant suggested by your driver. Two kilometers (1.2Mi) west along the beach from Omaha is the American Military Cemetery, where the graves of 9,386 American soldiers can be found. This immense place of memory and reflection will amaze you with its calmness and serenity.
7.00 pm: Drop off at your hotel in Paris.
