The tour

This is more than a mere visit; it’s a voyage to be taken together.

The code name Omaha landing sector remained in the memories of the American soldiers who landed there on June 6, 1944. It also remained in the memory of Norman families such as mine, who owe their freedom to these men who came from so far away. It is these two sides of the same story, this meeting of peoples in adversity, which we’ll discover together, by going to the places that will remind us of their history.

We will end our tour with a glass of a local drink that many soldiers appreciated in the past.

Optional: we will push up to “Pointe du Hoc”, a steep 100-feet cliff where highly trained American Rangers had to climb on the morning of June 6 to seize an artillery battery from the enemy.
