Quite amazing how much you can cover today in just about three hours and a half! First stop: the German gun battery of Longues defending both British Gold and American Omaha sectors. You will look at and even enter the bunkers, still intact after all these years and also touch the only cannons in Normandy still in place in a coastal battery. Next, Gold beach where the brave British soldiers of the 50th Infantry Division landed. Even if it was difficult in Asnelles, the landings worked perfectly as planned in Ver! Their major objective was Bayeux, it was liberated intact the day after.

On that same second day started the construction of the artificial harbor at Arromanches, codenamed “Mulberry B”. Large remnants can still be seen. The tour could not end anywhere else but at the Bayeux cemetery, one of 16 … therefore and sadly where a small proportion of the Normandy casualties were buried.
