London, Normandy, Paris

Visit all the battlegrounds and critical sites our forefathers did as you march towards Paris.

Go deep into Allied leadership at the underground command center where Churchill directed the war. Explore the Map Room, and take the English Channel by sea and Normandy by foot. Nothing can simulate the invasion, but the shore’s eerie quiet offers as much insight as the expert at your side.
