Vimy Ridge Private Day Trip with Hotel Pick-Up from Paris
For all Canadians, the Battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917 was the one that forged the identity of their young nation, and for the British, it was their first major success in the First World War. During this visit, you will follow in the footsteps of the brave soldiers who fought and died on the battlefields of Artois. You'll visit Cabaret Rouge Cemetery, the largest in the region, and discover the graves of Commonwealth units around the world. You will explore the Canadian Memorial Park, a parcel of land granted by France to Canada in recognition of the country's contribution and sacrifices during the war. See for yourself the trenches, tunnels and craters that still mark the landscape a century later. End the day in the beautiful city of Arras. Restored after the war in its original style, the city has two historic cobbled squares which present unique examples of Flemish Baroque architecture. This visit can be personalized to meet a specific request.
