11 days
London, Amsterdam Region, Vimy Region, Normandy Region, Paris
After years of living under constant threat of the Luftwaffe attack during The Blitz, Londoners took to the streets on VE Day—May 8, 1945—to celebrate the surrender of Nazi Germany. As you walk along those same streets 70 years later and see London’s famous landmarks you’ll learn more about this great city and WWII itself. In Paris, where the French Resistance led the uprising against German occupying forces, the splendid sites of the City of Light become etched in your memory forever.
