Normandy Invasion Beaches and Paris

A Tour Like No Other

Normandy Invasion Beaches TourA visit to the beaches, cemeteries, and battle sites pays tribute to the acts of bravery our heroes displayed on June 6, 1944 in Normandy.  It brings with it a greater understanding and appreciation of the events surrounding that fateful day.  Walk in the sand at Utah and Omaha to get the vantage point of the liberators when their landing-craft ramps dropped into the surf.  Visit enemy bunkers. See the cliffs scaled by the Rangers at Pointe du Hoc.  Walk through the liberated villages still scarred by the ferocious fighting that took place.  Everyone experiences different emotions upon seeing the field of crosses and Stars of David at the American Cemetery, but be assured of this - the memory will stay forever.

Do it the Right Way!

2014 is the 70th anniversary of the invasion of France at Normandy and it will surely be a top travel destination.  On several of my small group tours to Paris, I offer an extension to visit the Normany Invasion Beaches.   Personally, I have made the trip about 10 times and I recommend it highly.  In this blog post I have detailed an itinerary that will help in planning a trip to the Normandy Invasion Beaches.

The Best Austrian City in Italy

Trieste VisitThere is much more to Italy than Rome, Florence, and Venice.  We do recommend visiting those three cities if you have never been to Italy before.  However, there is so much more to explore.  In between trips to Croatia, we had the opportunity to go up to Trieste, very close to the Croatia and Slovenia border. Although we spent only a short time there, we found it to be a refreshing and most enjoyable way to experience Italy.  Read about our short visit to Trieste in today's blog post.
