“Nearly 70 years ago, a mighty armada embarked on an invasion that forever changed world history. The Nazi grip on western Europe was cracked on June 6, 1944, as brave soldiers crossed a slender ribbon of sea from England into Normandy and initiated one of the most influential battles of WWII. D-Day has been recalled by the veterans who fought it, the newsreels that depicted it, and thousands of dedicated historians – yet few have actually set foot on the infamous beaches.”
Uniworld describes the motivation for their “Paris & Normandy” cruise with those moving words, and provides an opportunity to explore history and the story that captures the Allies’ fight for freedom in WWII.
The “Paris and Normandy” cruise tours Northern France, including time on the Seine River, Notre Dame and Monet’s garden in Giverny. Guests will visit the D-Day Museum and the landing sites at Juno and Omaha Beach, along with a stop at the American Cemetary for a wreath-laying ceremony to honor American Soldiers.
“Paris & Normandy” is an 8-day river cruise from Paris to Paris. For more information on Uniworld, please click here.
