Loire Valley and Normandy tour
(7 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Next, Bayeux where you will spend three nights. Despite being the first large town liberated by the Allies in Normandy in 1944, Bayeux escaped serious damage during the Second World War, much of the delight of history lovers. During private touring explore Sainte Mère Eglise, the Airborne Museum, Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, the Pointe du Hoc and the US Cemetery.
On the way back to Paris, you will have the opportunity to stop in Giverny for a visit to Claude Monet's house and gardens. The pink house where he lived from 1883 until 1926 has had its colourful décor restored once again...
