Transfer from Paris to the Pointe-du-Hoc by minivan.
30 m high cliffs overlooking the sea, Pointe-du-Hoc is a dramatic historic site. Imagine hundreds of craters showing the massive bombings prior the landing. US Rangers had to climb the cliff to neutralize German canons…and found there a huge surprise. Unforgettable moment.
This name sound like tragic memories. Heart of the American sector, discovering Omaha will take you back to this glorious and scary 6th of June 1944. Try to imagine the thunderous bombings on the beach contrasting today with the peaceful and bucolic atmosphere. “Bloody Omaha”, called after the numerous corpses left on the beach, is a great example of human bravery.
A piece of America in Normandy. After the end of the war, in 1956, France gave a plot of land dominating Omaha Beach. The cemetery consists into infinite lines of marble and several monuments rending homage to the US Nation. Over 9000 US soldiers are resting for eternity here. Don’t miss the chapel, the visitor’s center and above all the Garden of the Missings, with the names of 1557 soldiers that were never found.
