France is home to many significant battlefields that echo with stories of bravery, sacrifice, and strategic genius. Here are some of the most renowned destinations you can explore with us:

Normandy

Visit the iconic beaches of Normandy, where the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944, marked a turning point in World War II.

Walk along Omaha, Utah, Gold, Juno, and Sword Beaches, and visit the poignant American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. Explore the remains of Mulberry harbors and the haunting cliffs of Pointe du Hoc.

The Somme

The Battle of the Somme in 1916 was one of the bloodiest battles of World War I. Visit the Thiepval Memorial, which honors over 72,000 missing British and South African men, and the preserved trenches at Beaumont-Hamel. Discover the stories of courage and tragedy that unfolded in the fields of Picardy.

Alsace

Explore the battlegrounds of Alsace, where the Vosges Mountains were the site of fierce fighting in both World Wars.

Visit the Hartmannswillerkopf (Vieil Armand), a powerful reminder of the conflict with its extensive trench system and memorial. The area offers a mix of historical insight and stunning natural scenery.

Provence

In Provence, explore the battlefields of the Rhone Valley, where Allied forces fought fiercely in Operation Dragoon in 1944.

Visit historic towns like Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, which played significant roles during the liberation of southern France.

Other destinations

While Normandy and the Somme are well-known, we also take you to lesser-known but equally significant sites:

Verdun: The site of one of the longest and costliest battles of World War I. Visit the Douaumont Ossuary and Fort Douaumont to understand the scale of the conflict.
