Travelers Mike and Karen have been around the world, but their recent experience on tour in France was their most memorable yet. Here, they share what it was like to set foot on the beaches of Normandy, where her father fought during World War II.
One of the best parts about traveling is gaining insight into the momentous events that shaped our world today—walking the paths of predecessors, exploring ancient architecture and, in this case, visiting the beaches where World War II history was made.
France has always been a traveler favorite, and we're excited to introduce an in-depth way to explore this gorgeous country. Our brand new Grand Tour of France lets you see it all—from the hillside villages of Provence and the charming harbors of the Riviera to the historic streets of Lyon and the world-renowned wines of Bordeaux.
