Normandy is one of the most popular destinations in France for American visitors. There is so much to see! Most of our clients are interested in history and learning about our brave soldiers storming the beaches during World War II. Many are interested in medieval art, architecture, beautiful gardens and serene picture postcard scenery. Of course, there is always the opportunity to sip some of the local Calvados brandy. Normandy offers all of this and more!

Here is a list of some of our favorite places to visit while in Normandy. We have broken them down by topic or interest. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance when you plan a private tour to this historic and beautiful region. Read more - svptours.com/luxury-travel/the-best-of-normandy/
