Full day Normandy D-Day Landing Beaches including Omaha Beach and Juno Beach
We begin the day visiting the poignant D-Day Museum and the bunkers and Rangers Memorial at Pointe du Hoc. Pay tribute to the brave souls who lost their lives on the D-Day Landing Beaches of Omaha, imagining the sense of terror and triumph felt the fateful day that Allied forces set foot on mainland Europe. We stop for lunch in the seaside setting of Arromanches, once at the heart of the Normandy landings. Finish the day on the beaches of Juno, one of the five D-Day landing beaches.
Meal: Buffet Breakfast

Normandy Beaches – Mont St. Michel
This morning, travel to the fortified island town of Mont St. Michel. Here we’ll join a Local Specialist for a tour of Mont St. Michel’s medieval Benedictine Abbey. Legend has it, the abbey was built after the Archangel Michael appeared to the Bishop of Avranches inspiring him to build a church atop the island. Consider an Optional Experience to the historic walled port city of Saint-Malo, once the home of famous French explorer, Jacques Cartier.

Châteaux Excursion
We spend our day admiring the beautiful châteaux of the Loire Valley and join a Local Specialist for a visit to the Amboise Royal Château. It is here that King François I hosted Leonard da Vinci, whose tomb now lies in the Chapel of Saint-Hubert adjoining the château. We continue with a visit to Chenonceau, a château built on the Cher River. The château is often referred to as the Ladies Castle, due to the many women who influenced its construction and development. Today it contains priceless collections, including Renaissance furniture, tapestries and masterpieces by Rubens and Tintoretto.

Our first stop today is the royal Château de Chambord of King François I, regarded as one of the world’s most remarkable châteaux, with its exquisite Italian Renaissance architecture and decorative moat.
