Growing up with a father and an uncle who served during World War II, William Fortunato always had a respect for the men who served during the Greatest Generation. “My uncle, in particular,” recounted Fortunato, “served at Normandy Beach so it was always a place I felt the need to visit. He suffered after the war with gruesome nightmares about a friend he was unable to save.”
Now, at a different phase in his life, Fortunato has his own family that includes a wife who always wanted to go to Paris in the springtime and travel the Rhine River. So the best option as long time members of Vacation Inspirations? Travel to Paris for a couple of days for their wedding anniversary and then board a Viking River Cruise from Paris to Normandy.
