Your best option might be to take your D-Day tour into your own hands by renting a car, buying a Normandy Pass, finding a good map, and talking to our travel experts at ParisByM. The Normandy Pass is available at tourism centres and offers visitors some advantages such as reduced rates at certain museums and small gifts. Maps could be available online so you can begin to organize your trip immediately. Rent a car from Paris through our partner Europcar and start your journey!

Getting to Normandy

Most of the DDay tours mentioned, aside from the day trip from Paris, leave from Bayeux, France, a city 20 minutes south of the Normandy Landing Beaches. So, if you plan on staying in Normandy for a few days, look for accommodations in Bayeux.

If you are not staying in the Normandy area during the time of your DDay tour, there is a train station located in Bayeux. To get there from Paris, you will take the train toward “Cherbourg” from the Saint-Lazare station (around 35€ each way). The trip will take about two and a half hours. The Bayeux Train Station is about 20 minutes from the city centre, so you can choose to walk the distance or take a taxi (around 5€).

SNCF Information

It is also possible to fly into the Caen Airport, then rent a car and drive to the city of Bayeux from there.
