daadmin
16 febbraio 2016

On this complete, full‐day tour, you will discover the Landing Beaches of Normandy where on the 6th of June 1944, the Allied forces landed on the coast of Lower Normandy to start the liberation of Europe from the Nazis. With your licensed guide, you will re-live the principal events and battles of the Longest Day. Your Licensed English Speaking Guide will pick you up from your hotel in Paris at 7.00 am in a deluxe private vehicle and you will depart immediately to the wonderful region of Normandy. Upon your arrival, you will be given an introduction by your private guide to the battle of Normandy. Enjoy a quick stop half‐way for coffee and croissants.

You will begin your day in Pointe du Hoc, a strategic position for the Germans overlooking the English Channel just between Utah Beach and Omaha Beach. Your guide will explain to you how the US Second Ranger Battalion, under the command of Colonel James Rudder, successfully assaulted Pointe du Hoc after scaling the cliffs. You will then enjoy the scenery whilst driving along Omaha Beach before reaching one of the highlights of the day: The American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer where 9387 American soldiers are buried. During your private visit, your guide will show you famous headstones such as, Theodore Roosevelt Jr who received the medal of honour, and The Niland Brothers who inspired Steven Spielberg’s film, Saving Private Ryan, with the appropriate explanations. After this emotional walk through the cemetery, you will have the opportunity to view remarkable films and documentaries about the Normandy operations in the Visitor Centre.

Following this, you will have a lunch (not included) in a traditional restaurant in Port en Bessin, a small fishing-port village, situated between Omaha Beach and Gold Beach. Enjoy some of the best specialities of Normandy region: fresh sea‐food, Camembert cheese with some great local cider. BON APPETIT!!! After this delicious lunch, you will discover another impressive site of the Second World War: The German Battery of Longues-sur-Mer, part of Germany’s Atlantic Wall coastal fortifications with the four 155mm guns still intact.

At the conclusion of your tour, you will visit the beautiful town of Arromanches where the massive artificial harbour built by the Allies still remains. If time permits, enjoy a cider and calvados tasting in a small local farm near Arromanches before heading back to Paris in the late afternoon, where you will be dropped off at your hotel around 7.00pm.

    Sweet apartment at Marais, heart of Paris. Unadulterated old European charm, last floor up a curvy staircase, authentic Parisian style. If you want to get the ultimate Parisian experience from within, not flashy but very much real - this is the place to go.

    Sweet apartment at Marais, heart of Paris. Unadulterated old European charm, last floor up a curvy staircase, authentic Parisian style. If you want to get the ultimate Parisian experience from within, not flashy but very much real - this is the place to go. Nadia was extremely helpful at all the stages of the trip, even before we set foot on French soil. She was responding to our emails and inquiries usually within one hour or less, very accessible! Eliane, the apartment owner who stayed next door, was also very available, helpful and open to share. Both know perfect English (not a given in France), which makes communication a breeze. Fridge is small and ancient but works well, and all the appliances are in perfect working order. WiFi is there and it's working. If you love philosophy and history and Latin, and you read French, Eliane has plenty of those books on her shelves. Bottom line:  Like that croissant out of a stove just few minutes ago in a coffee shop at the corner down the street, go for this delicious, tender, warm, unassuming and madly romantic taste of real France! Looking forward to visiting Nadia's place again! Jerusalem, Israel , August 2011

    Lovely flat in the heart of Paris. Short stroll to the Pompidou centre. It is on the third floor and there is no lift which was fine with me but others might find it a bit tricky with lots of luggage. The flat had loads of excellent CDs and DVDs to entertain yourself with. Great view out onto the street....

    Lovely flat in the heart of Paris. Short stroll to the Pompidou centre. It is on the third floor and there is no lift which was fine with me but others might find it a bit tricky with lots of luggage. The flat had loads of excellent CDs and DVDs to entertain yourself with. Great view out onto the street. It was August when I went and Paris was very hot, there were two fans I the apartment which were used in the evening but like most of Paris the is no air conditioning. Bathroom is good and the kitchen is very good, lots of stuff to use. It was brilliant being in the very centre of Paris, although the rue St Denis does have quite a lot of 'interesting' shops. I would recommend this flat to a couple wanting to stay in paris. Very bohemian and comfy flat with stylish furniture and a good feel. August 2015 COLCHESTER, UK
