An All New River Cruise & Normandy ChÂteau Experience
Featuring an exclusive lecture series by the Museum’s special guests, this all-new tour brings together the very best of The National WWII Museum’s flagship Normandy program with a whole new level of luxury—including world-class château accommodations and a five-star river cruise aboard the brand new, exclusively chartered Joie de Vivre. Your journey features expert local guides along the Seine River and in Normandy, with unparalleled knowledge of WWII locations, from lesser-known sites available exclusively to The National WWII Museum’s travel programs to iconic landmarks steeped in heroism and history. Visit the iconic church in Sainte-Mère-Église where paratrooper John Steele watched the battle while suspended from his snagged parachute. Ascend the bluffs of Omaha Beach to appreciate the daunting challenge faced by young American G.I.s disembarking from their Higgins boats. Cross Pegasus Bridge where Major John Howard and the men of the British 6th Airborne Division won the first battle of D-Day just minutes after midnight. Along the way, meet veterans of the French Resistance, hear from top-rated battlefield guides, and appreciate the beauty, culture, and history of a region that has played a critical role in world history.
