What to expect

Visit WWI sites and monuments of the Somme Battlefields on this day trip from Paris!

Although fought in France and Europe, World War I claimed the lives of thousands of men from across the globe. Units from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and many more countries made their way to the front lines in France to fight for their allies. On this full-day tour through the Somme region, you will visit memorials and cemeteries that have been preserved to honor those lost between 1914 and 1918. This powerful and moving experience will take you to the very places where these battles were fought and where these men died fighting for freedom. Two options are available, focused either on Canadian or Australian sites. Includes round-trip train tickets from Paris to the Somme region.
