Luc-sur-Mer Normandy is good base to explore D-Day beaches ?

Dear All,

We're planning to do tours of D-Day beaches and wanted to know if Luc-sur-Mer is good place as base ?

Is it easily accessible from Paris and how is bus frequency to visit cities like Caen & Bayeux ?

Thanks & Regards,

Vicky

Luc-sur-Mer is as good a seaside place as any other as a base for exploring the D-Day beaches, but bear in mind that it takes two hours, without stops, to drive from one end of these beaches to the other (and that Luc is toward the eastern end). You will need a car for exploration.

To get to Luc-sur-Mer from Paris by public transport is by train (Gare St Lazare) to Caen, about 2 hrs, then bus, about 25 min. https:/…544-Les-horaires-Bus-Verts.html

If you are not going to hire a car in Caen and drive yourself for D Day touring can I suggest you stay in Bayeux and take the tours from there.
