Renowned for that fateful day when the Allied Troops landed on D-Day during World War II, the coast of Normandy indeed offers solemn journeys to those wanting to pay their respects but don't miss out on its cultural enrichment inland where you'll discover its art and architecture and scrumptious Camembert, fresh produce and those wild mushrooms for which this region is known for! Just a few hours from Paris, Normandy offers a world of opportunities of discovery from Omaha Beach and Mont Saint-Michele to Bayeux and Rouen. Join me on tour through some of the best places to visit in this one-time land of the Vikings and the Normans on the northern coast of France.
