Normandy

#1
Ok, so my old man is heading to Normandy next Tuesday. I've done a battle field tour down there and LOVED it, however I've forgotten the key place names...

Pegasus bridge is on the list, as are a few of the beaches. Any more suggestions? He'll be driving and should be there for about 4 days / 5 nights. He's planning on staying any where, with Trouville booked for one night.

Any help with sight's he would like to see and places to stay would be greatly appreciated.
