The ‘D.Day’ Landing Beaches and Bayeux.

Continue with Omaha beach and the very moving American cemetery. Then drive along Omaha beach where your guide will show you some of the German bunkers and machine-gun nests.

See Pointe du Hoc where the Ranger heroes of colonel James Earl Rudder climbed the cliff to destroy a German battery, key action for the success of 'D.Day' and therefore victory in World War II !
