Bayeux Tapestry & Omaha Beach
A tale of two invasions...
Learn about the two most important invasions in Norman history: the invasion and conquest of England by William II Duke of Normandy and the invasion of Normandy by the allied troops as the start of the campaign to liberate Europe from the clutches of the Nazi regime.
Your private journey of discovery will start in the city of Bayeux, where you'll view the famous Bayeux Tapestry, the world's largest embroidered cloth which depicts the events of William's invasion of England in 1066.
You'll have free time in Bayeux for lunch and/or further exploring before continuing to the coast for a visit to some of the sites of the Allied invasion of Normandy which took place on June 6, 1944.
First stop: Longues-sur-Mer to see the big guns of this German battery that demonstrate the fire power the allied landing forces faced. Next you'll pay a short visit to Omaha Beach, the best defended of the beaches and bloodiest engagement of the invasion.
Your tour ends with the moving experience of a visit to the American Cemetery at Colville-sur-Mer.
