Itinerary

Description

In 1944 Allied troops invaded Normandy in a powerful move during World War II against Nazi Germany. 75 years on from this important moment in history we visit the D-Day Landing Beaches to learn more about the events that took place. We’ll also visit the picturesque towns of Honfleur and Trouville.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1
Ferry to Calais and on to our hotel in Caen.

Day 2 – D-Day Landing Beaches & Caen
Today we explore the Normandy beaches where the Allied troops of Britain, America and Canada landed on 6th June 1944 to begin the liberation of Europe from Nazi occupation. Here we learn more about this daring and world-changing naval operation on our guided tour.

This afternoon we have free time to explore Caen, where we are based. One of the oldest university towns in France, discover two ancient abbeys, a medieval château and a fascinating history.


Day 3 – Honfleur & Trouville
We visit the charming port town of Honfleur. Unlike many of its Normandy neighbours, Honfleur was spared during the bombing of World War II and nestled in its tidy, picturesque streets historic buildings house art galleries, artists’ studios, boutiques, restaurants, cafés and fine souvenir shops.

Our last stop of the day is Trouville. You may recognise this beach resort from the Claude Monet painting The boardwalk at Trouville. Here we can take in the glamorous buildings and villas and enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk ourselves. 

Day 4
Travel back to Calais for our return ferry home.
