Join CBC broadcaster and bestselling author Ted Barris and attend the 70th anniversary of D-Day at JUNO Beach in Normandy, France. We are pleased to have Ted Barris lead a unique tour to this historic Second World War region in France. Travellers will fly to Paris and arrive in Normandy in time for the 70th anniversary observances at Canada’s D-Day landing site – the new Juno Beach Centre.
The tour will also include visits to one of Europe’s best war and peace museums, Le Mémorial de Caen, Canada’s D-Day cemetery at Beny-sur-Mer, the Pegasus Bridge museum, the Arromanches Mulberry harbour site, and home of the famous Bayeux tapestry. The Normandy tour will include a guided, day-long immersion into the life, diet and transport of the Canadian soldier 70 years ago, and a one-day side-trip up the coast to the site of Canada’s other history Second World War landing site at Dieppe to see the beaches, museum and cemetery.
