Are you planning to visit the D-Day beaches with a group ?
In 1944, Normandy was the scene of the largest military operation of all time; Operation Overlord. Today, 75 years later, the actors of history are disappearing; but the places, witnesses of the past, remain. History becomes Memory. A common memory that unites us, and that we want to remember and understand.
Discover Normandy, the Atlantic Wall and its blockhouses, the landing beaches, the battlefields, but also life in Normandy during the occupation and nowadays.
