This half-day tour starts with a guided walk around Ste Mere L’Eglise. The town hit the headlines on the night of June 5th 1944, when the American 82nd Division troops landed. Their arrival put the town on the map as the first place to be liberated on that fateful night. You’ll visit the local church, where you can take a look at the vivid stained glass window depicting the American parachute drop. And you’ll make a stop at the famous ‘O’ Milestone, which symbolises the start of the ‘Road to Freedom’. After that, it’s on - via Ste Marie Du Mont - to the famous Utah Beach. You’ll get to see where the landings actually took place, and your guide will fill you in on exactly what happened. You’ll have plenty of time to take pictures and soak up the atmosphere before we head back to Cherbourg.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
