    • June 24, 2024 - This morning, journey through the English countryside to Portsmouth. This city played a critical role in the preparation efforts for Operation Overlord.

    • June 25, 2024 - In the early hours of the morning, board a ferry and cross the English Channel. As you breathe in the salted sea air during your 6-hour sailing, reflect upon the parallel journey nearly 160,000 courageous Allied troops took on June 6th, 1944, as they set out to liberate Europe from the Nazis.
    • June 26, 2024 - This morning, explore the Caen Peace Memorial Museum dedicated to providing a comprehensive history of the D-Day landings and Europe’s post-war transition. Then, set out for Arromanche-les-Bains to view the remains of the Mulberry Harbor. Later this afternoon, stop at the German Artillery battery of Longues-sur-Mer, featured in The Longest Day. Then pause at a local farm for a stroll through their apple orchards and a taste of traditional cider.
    • June 27, 2024 - Today, immerse yourself in the history of Normandy’s beaches – the site of the largest amphibious invasion in history. Visit two U.S. landing zones of the invasion of Normandy: Omaha Beach and this afternoon, Utah Beach. At the Airborne Museum, learn the unique history of paratroopers in Saint-Mère-Église, the first French town liberated from the Nazis. Return to Caen in the early evening.
    • June 28, 2024 - Head south to Paris this morning. Your drive through the rich pasturelands of Normandy takes you to the village of Giverny. Stroll through the colorful living work of art that is Monet’s Garden, where you’ll see the source for the artist’s inspiration, including the setting for his iconic Waterlilies. Then, set off to Paris, the French capital that was under German occupation from 1940 to 1944. As your day ends, make the most of an evening at leisure.
    • June 29, 2024 - A local expert leads you on a journey back to the time of German occupation and the puppet government of Vichy. From the Vel d’Hiv, Hôtel de Ville, Les Invalides, Panthéon, and the Luxembourg Gardens to Le Marais, see the sites that tell the story of the liberation of Paris and what life was like under the Nazis. Tonight, bid au revoir to your fellow travelers and to the City of Light while gently floating down the Seine on a dinner cruise.
