DAY 1 | Rouen, Honfleur and the Landing Beaches of Normandy

You will leave from our agency at 7.15am to head to Normandy. During the 2-hour drive, you'll find out more about the region until your reach your first stop, Rouen. Your guide will walk you through the historic center to discover the impressive Rouen Cathedral. The city of Rouen is particularly charming thanks to its medieval alleyways, its lively pedestrian streets, its half-timbered houses and its famous Gros Horloge, an astronomical clock that is one of the city's treasures. Many Impressionist painters were inspired by the beauty of the city, including Claude Monet, who painted various views of the cathedral.

You'll then head to Honfleur located approximately 90km away from Rouen. During the ride you can admire the view of the Pont de Normandie, a cable-stayed bridge that spans the Seine estuary. In Honfleur, you'll enjoy some free time to discover this port city with its picturesque streets and colorful houses which has preserved a rich historic and artistic heritage. You'll have lunch on your own in one of Honfleur's typical estaurants.

You'll spend the afternoo at the Beaches of Normandy, a must-see World War II sites, symbolic of the Allied landings in 1944. You'll see the American military cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer ans the Omaha Beach. If the weather permits, the coach may take you to Arromanches, around 25 minutes away.

The day ends in Caen where you will stay at Novotel Caen (or similar) and dine with the group at the hotel.

DAY 2 | Saint-Malo and the Mont Saint-Michel

After breakfast, you'll head to Saint-Malo (170km from Caen),a town which boasts a rich historic heritage and several classified monuments like the city walls, the castle, Saint-Malo Cathedral, and Fort National.

You'll enjoy some free time to lunch in the historical center before hitting the road to Mont Saint-Michel, this "Wonder of the West" perched on a rocky islet dating back to the Middle Ages.

Passing through the King's Gate, you will find the Grande Rue where the main museums, shops and medieval houses are located. You'll climb the Grand Degré staircase and get to the top to visit the fascinating 8th century Benedictine abbey. Admire its Gothic architecture and discover the cloister, dining hall and garden overlooking the sea. After the guided tour of the abbey, enjoy the panoramic view as you walk along the town walls.
