DescriptionOn this day tour in the northwest of France, you'll combine a historic tour of one of America's few foreign gravesites with a visit to a quaint local winery. During World War II, the Allied Forces stormed the beaches of Normandy in their mission to defeat the evils of Nazi Germany. Many Americans gave their lives in the ultimate sacrifice for freedom and liberty. In order to secure the Mediterranean and yet another front against the Nazis, the Allies again pushed forward with the Landing of Provence. You will visit the American military cemetery commemorating the lives of the men who fell in service to their nation. A guide will explain the details of this military operation, as well as what the victory meant for the Allied forces. After visiting the cemetery, you'll make your way to a local winery for a wine tasting. You'll tour the vineyard estate and enjoy several whites, reds, and Rosé, along with a sampling of some traditional French bread.
