We visited smaller ports on the way to Rouen, all very nice stops. Rouen is a beautiful old city, were taken on a very good walking tour, with a great guide. From Rouen we bussed to the Normandy Beaches, this was the highlight of the trip. Not enough can be said about Normandy and its people, they are very friendly and kind, and do love the Americans and the British and Canadians, with good reason.
Volumes have been written about D-Day and the Normandy Beaches and Cemetery's; American, Commonwealth, Canadian, British, and German. If you have not been you must go!
