“The Arromanches D-Day Museum overlooks the beach, close to the spot where the remnants of the artificial harbour can still be seen on the sandy shore and in the waters near Arromanches. The museum illustrates the remarkable logistics and technical aspects of "Operation Mulberry," which involved the building of the Mulberry Harbours. Near the museum are many cafés and shops on the bustling Place du 6 Juin square.”

“The American Military Cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer is the most famous war cemetery in Normandy. The long lines of white marble Latin crosses and stars of David symbolise the sacrifices that the Allied nations - and here in particular the United States of America - have made for our freedom. The cemetery is an exceptional site, not in the least because of its impressive location dominating Omaha Beach, where the Americans suffered their worst losses. It take around 45 minutes to drive to the American Cemetery from La Forge and is well worth a visit.”
