The unique scenographic and musical trail experience inside the museum is not to be missed. Honfleur’s strategic location as a gateway from the Seine to the English Channel has helped the town play a pivotal role in shaping France’s history during the Hundred Years War. A short distance from Honfleur lie the historic Normandy beaches of the D-Day landings. A visit to the beaches, the Normandy American Cemetery and the Landing Museum at Arromanches will transport you back to the time of the Battle of Normandy, when over a hundred thousand allied soldiers successfully liberated Western Europe from the clutches of the Nazis.
Picturesque Honfleur is filled with charming little attractions. The town’s Pont de Normandie (Normandy Bridge) is an engineering marvel of its time and the half-timbered houses take you right back to the Middle Ages. Honfleur is surrounded by stunning natural beauty and serves as the perfect launch pad to travel the rest of Normandy and Northern France. It’s the easiest way to explore the incredible limestone cliffs of the Alabaster Coast that plunge into the English Channel and the art and history of the lovely fishing port of Fécamp. Paris
is the starting point for Scenic river cruises on the Seine river through the Honfleur region, including the 11 Day Normandy and Gems of the Seine and the 21 Day Gems of the Seine & Beautiful Bordeaux.
