Afterwards we will go to our 3* Royal Hotel in Caen, in Normandy.

Monday | Together with our tour leader we will go on foot to explore the city of Caen. This town boasts of two abbeys; the Abbey Aux Hommes and the Abbey aux Dames. It was precisely here that William the Conqueror chose to reside. The soul of this historically rich city today is found nestled in the ancient quarters of its centre with narrow streets lined with lively shops, a marina right in the heart of the city and an array of parks and gardens. The rest of the afternoon is free or else one can go to Caen Memorial Museum (extra) - this peace memorial is a must-see, retelling an hour-by-hour account of D-Day.

Tuesday | We will enjoy the highlight of our full-day optional excursion that takes us to the beautiful sights of the island of Mont Saint Michel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and undoubtedly one of Normandy’s most spectacular attractions. The well-preserved abbey, from which the island takes its name. There are substantial amount of steps to reach the abbey. We explore the abbey’s ramparts (extra), the island’s museum and then we shall have time to browse the local shops.

Wednesday | Our coach will take us to our full-day optional excursion, where we first go to Lisieux. The simple and humble way St Therese of Lisieux lived her life draws many people to this wonderful shrine. We see the Carmelite convent, the Cathedral and the Basilica. Then, we shall go to Saint Germain de Livet, a charming hamlet at the bottom of the valley. Here, we will see a picture postcard timbered farm, a couple of cottages, a church, and the adorable 15th century Chateau with pepper pot turrets and pink and white checkerboard façade. We shall have time to visit the beautiful gardens of this Chateau (extra).

Thursday | Another full-day optional excursion takes us to Honfleur and Étretat. Honfleur offers a unique heritage, which can be best glimpsed by strolling along this little maritime city that has somehow escaped the ravages of time, making it one of the most visited towns in France. Honfleur has succeeded in making the most of its rich historical and artistic heritage. We will then proceed to Étretat where the sea passes under the limestone arches that make the resort famous. We have time to admire the splendid view of the sea and its magnificent beach and cliffs.

First, we shall stop at “The Pointe du Hoc”, 90 feet high cliffs, where 225 Rangers landed on June 6, 1944. We will continue our day of remembrance and stop at Colleville sur Mer to visit the American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach, which contains over 9,000 white crosses perfectly aligned on 170 acres. We shall then proceed to Bayeux, which was the first town to be liberated by the Allies at the end of World War Two. We will see the Cathedral and the famous Bayeux Tapestry (extra). This piece of art work tells the story of William the Conqueror.

Saturday | Our full-day optional excursion takes us to the medieval city of Rouen. We will walk through the old town centre, where we shall see the Cathedral, the 14th-century courthouse where Joan of Arc was sentenced to death and the Market Square.
