Normandy, France

In this episode of Passport to Europe, Samantha Brown takes us on an unforgettable journey to Normandy, France. Normandy sits in the northwestern corner of France, less than 2 hours from Paris, and is most remembered for its role in D-Day and the allied landings of WW2, but Samantha discovers there are so many more reasons to visit this region, and some are sure to surprise you.Did you know that its home to a monument that challenges the Eiffel Tower as Europe's greatest attraction? It's called Le Mont-St-Michel, and the only way to walk to it is to wait for low tide. Did you know that Normandy is the only place in France where the lowly apple outshines the grape? At the annual Apple Festival Sam joins other festival goers for a glimpse at this year's famous apple sculpture - a tribute to rock and roll music. And finally, Samantha explores what may be one of the most picturesque towns in France --- a 15 year old artist came here to paint his "impressions" of the place - he was Claude Monet and the picture perfect town was Honfleur. Samantha's own journey through Normandy leaves her with a memorable impression.
