Spotlight on: Commemorating WWII

France is home to several WWII battle sites and memorials. Here is a closer look at some of the destinations from Day 8 of The Essence of France Tour.

  • Mémorial de Caen: This museum and war memorial commemorates the Second World War and the Battle for Caen. It is filled with artefacts, videos and audio recordings from the war and its exhibits allow visitors to follow the Invasion of Normandy step-by-step.
  • Driving tour of the Normandy beaches: Experience in person the site of the Allied D-Day landings of June 1944.
  • Pointe du Hoc: At this site, Army Rangers scaled the massive cliffs in pre-dawn darkness to seize the German artillery that could have fired on the troops landing on the beaches.
  • American Cemetery: where nearly 10,000 stark white markers memorialize the Americans who gave their lives on the beaches below.
  • Sainte Mère Église: (time permitting), the airborne drop site made famous by “The Longest Day” and “Band of Brothers.” It was the first town in France to be liberated.
