Highlights
    What to Expect
    Depart from a centrally located Bayeux location and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle destined for Pegasus Bridge. Get acquainted with the turbulent history of this deceptively picturesque region and then continue onto the Melville Gun Battery and Museum to delve deeper into the history of this formerly war-torn French enclave. 

    After hearing of how courageous D-Day soldiers completed their difficult mission at Sword Beach, admire the coastal splendor of the sandy stretch and listen to tales of the heavy artillery fire that 28,000 soldiers came under.  Spend some enriching time exploring the Hillman Bunkers and gain insight into the pivotal roles the concrete shelters played in the midst of the conflict. 

    Continue onto the Commonwealth Military Cemeteries to pay tribute to interminable rows of graves commemorating fallen soldiers, and take a moment of quiet reflection while reading moving epitaphs of each courageous fighter. 

    After a day of enriching exploration, return to your minivan and relax during the scenic journey back to Bayeux.
