Visiting Pont du Hoc will take your breath away (thanks to the magnificent view) and leave you baffled yet amazed. Seeing first-hand how steep and high those cliffs actually are made me wonder how in the world the troops were able to climb them AND fight the enemy. The pill boxes and bunkers are a definite must to explore. And don't forget to take in how big and deep the shell craters are. I dread to even imagine what the explosions must have been like!
