Though no one can forget the largest military amphibious operation ever to take place, Normandy is known for more than just the World War II invasion. This breathtaking region in the northwestern corner of France has inspired famous artists and writers throughout history with its natural beauty and proud, graceful people. Guy de Maupassant was inspired by his birth place to recreate colorful stories about the Normans whilst Claude Monet, who grew up in the port of Le Havre along the Norman coast, was influenced throughout his life by the region's rugged coastline and countryside. In fact, Monet so loved the region that he spent the last 30 years of his life in Giverny, a lovely little village on Normandy's northeastern border.
