SUNDAY, 10TH JULY

We will meet at the airport at 4.00am for our Air Malta flight to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport departing at 6.25am. On arrival at 9.20am, our coach will pick us up to proceed to Paris for a free panoramic city tour, where we shall see, amongst others, La Defense, Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Tour Eiffel, Place de la Concorde, L’Opera and Notre Dame Cathedral. Afterwards we will go to our 3-star Royal Hotel in Caen, in Normandy.

MONDAY, 11TH JULY

Together with our tour leader, we will go on foot to explore the city of Caen. This town boasts of two abbeys: the Abbey Aux Hommes and the Abbey aux Dames. It was precisely here that William the Conqueror chose to reside. The soul of this historically rich city today is found nestled in the ancient quarters of its centre with narrow streets lined with lively shops, a marina right in the heart of the city and an array of parks and gardens. The rest of the afternoon is free, or one can go to Caen Memorial Museum (extra) – this peace memorial is a must-see, retelling an hour-by-hour account of D-Day.

TUESDAY, 12TH JULY

We will enjoy the highlight of our full-day optional excursion that takes us to the beautiful sights on the Island of Mont Saint Michel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and undoubtedly one of Normandy’s most spectacular attractions that includes the well-preserved abbey, from which the island takes its name. There is substantial amount of steps to reach the abbey. We explore the abbey’s ramparts (extra), the island’s museum, and then we shall have time to browse the local shops.

WEDNESDAY, 13TH JULY

Our coach will take us to our full-day optional excursion where we first go to Lisieux. The simple and humble way St. Therese of Lisieux lived her life draws many people to this wonderful shrine. We see the Carmelite convent, the Cathedral and the Basilica. Then, we shall go to Saint Germain de Livet, a charming hamlet at the bottom of the valley. Here, we will see a picture postcard timbered farm, a couple of cottages, a church, and the adorable 15th century Chateau with pepper pot turrets and pink and white checkerboard façade. We shall have time to visit the beautiful gardens of this Chateau (extra).

THURSDAY, 14TH JULY

Another full-day optional excursion takes us to Honfleur and Étretat. Honfleur offers a unique heritage which can be best glimpsed by strolling along this little maritime city that has somehow escaped the ravages of time, making it one of the most visited towns in France. Honfleur has succeeded in making the most of its rich historical and artistic heritage. We will then proceed to Étretat, where the sea passes under the limestone arches that make the resort famous. We have time to admire the splendid view of the sea and its magnificent beach and cliffs.

FRIDAY, 15TH JULY

Today’s full-day optional excursion takes us to a journey through the history of World War II. First, we shall stop at “The Pointe du Hoc”, 90 feet high cliffs, where 225 Rangers landed on June 6, 1944. We will continue our day of remembrance and stop at Colleville sur Mer to visit the American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach, which contains over 9,000 white crosses perfectly aligned on 170 acres. We shall then proceed to Bayeux, which was the first town to be liberated by the Allies at the end of World War II. We will see the Cathedral and the famous Bayeux Tapestry (extra). This piece of art work tells the story of William the Conqueror.

SATURDAY, 16TH JULY

Our full-day optional excursion takes us to the medieval city of Rouen. We will walk through the old town centre, where we shall see the Cathedral, the 14th century courthouse where Joan of Arc was sentenced to death and the Market Square. We will have some free time before we return to Caen.

SUNDAY, 17TH JULY

We shall check-out from our hotel and board our coach to go to Paris Orly Airport. On our way, we will make a stop in the town of Giverny, where we visit the beautiful gardens and charming stone farmhouse (extra) where Claude Monet lived and worked. We will then be transferred to Orly airport for our return Air Malta flight departing at 9.45pm and arriving in Malta at 00.20am (Monday early morning).
