En route, you will discover the unique variety of landscape which is Normandy’s most striking features called: le Bocage Normand.

Your full-day guided tour will start with visiting the site of Utah beach, one of the US landing beaches in Normandy.

Explore the fascinating Utah Beach Museum and learn about the story of D-Day, from its preparation to its success. Admire the many fully restored military artifacts such as an impressive craft, a B26 bomber, of which there are only a few copies in the world. During your visit, you will also relive the epic experience of American soldiers through a 15-minute film "Victory in the Sand" awarded as the best museum documentary.

After your visit, you will not only understand the strategic choice and the reason for the success of Utah Beach but also the role and importance of the Normandy landings in the overall context of the Second World War.

Afterward, you'll visit one of the key towns in the area that is to say Sainte-Mère Eglise famous for John Steele the American paratrooper who remained hanging from the steeple of the church of this little village on D-day. You will discover that Sainte-Mère Eglise is also home to a fantastic Airborne Museum!

During the visit to the Airborne Museum, you'll have a much better understanding of what paratroopers faced on D-Day.

If the time allows you will either pay a visit to the site of La Pointe du Hoc where 225 Rangers have climbed the cliff to destroy the German batteries.
