We will show you the major activities that you can do, between the D-Day beaches, the Normandy islands and of course the famous Mont Saint-Michel.
Fortunately, it has been a long time since the D-Day beaches have regained their splendor. Still, they are a witness of the past. As a reminder, no less than 150000 soldiers landed on the beaches, on June 6, 1944, through sea and air landing. The famous Battle of Normandy sounded the death knell of the Second World War. It is therefore a landscape steeped in history that awaits you. But don't worry, the visit, while being a reminder of the worst days of humanity, is not really oppressive. You will be able to discover all the sites of history, from Utah Beach, through the Battery, not to mention the museums and other institutions that will explain more deeply the ins and outs of this period of world historical importance. A road trip is planned over 4 days to bring you a complete visit of the places.
