Historical Route: D-Day Beaches to the Mont-Saint-Michel
This route sets off from the D-Day Landing Beaches (Utah Beach, Port-en-Bessin-Huppain or Arromanches-les-Bains) and finishes at the Mont-Saint-Michel, with the opportunity to marvel at 2 UNESCO-listed sites on the way: the Bayeux tapestry together with the Mont-Saint-Michel and its Bay.
