On June 6, 1944, a heroic formation of Allied troops achieved the largest coordinated military invasion in history on the beaches of Normandy, triggering the beginning of the end of World War II. Walk through history on this exclusive journey through Normandy, featuring two full days of exploration that highlight this important victory during the 70th anniversary of D-Day. From your base in the charming town of Honfleur, journey to the D-Day landing beaches, including poignant Omaha Beach, led by a historian who will discuss D-Day's events. Visit the American Military Cemetery, the Peace Memorial at Caen and the commune of Sainte Mère Église, one of the first towns liberated on D-Day.
