I am backpacking around Europe and would like to see the D-Day Beaches in Normandy.
I plan to take the Portsmouth to Ouistreham overnight ferry. After the D-Day Beaches, my next destination will be Mont St. Michel. I will not have a car and plan to travel around by bus and train. I will consider escorted tours.
What is the best base for D-Day beaches? Caen seems to have the Normandie Memorial. I've heard about Busverts. Would two days (the day of morning-arrival into Ouistreham) + next day be sufficient? What could be a rough plan to visit as much as possible?
