Itinerary:

Day 1  Amiens, France
Arrive in Lille and start today by exploring the battlefields of the Somme, where the British Army suffered the bloodiest single day in its history.

From here head to Amiens where you will spend the next two nights.  

Day 2  Amiens
Today you will visit the underground city of Naours. Here you can wander the network of tunnels where hundreds of soldiers left their mark by leaving inscriptions on the walls – a touching insight into the lives and personalities of some of the brave soldiers who fought in WW1.

Day 3  Amiens to Ypres, Belgium
Leaving Amiens travel to the Australian  National War Memorial & Cemetery at Villers-Bretonneux in Belgium. Afterwards, visit the Canadian Memorial Park on Vimy Ridge before continuing on to Ypres for the next two nights.

Day 4  Ypres
Spend today at your own leisure exploring Ypres. Why not visit sights including John McCrae’s Dressing Station at Essex Farm Cemetery, Vancouver Corner and the Hooge Crater trenches museum? Later, attend the emotive daily playing of the Last Post under the Menin Gate Memorial.

Day 5  Ypres to Lille, France
This morning explore Hill 60 and the area around Fromelles, Pheasant Wood Cemetery, VC Corner and the Australian Memorial Park. Later, head back to Lille where your tour comes to an end.
