Introduction

Le Havre, France

Sail to a beacon of modern architecture on your Northern Europe cruise holiday. Le Havre is a large port town in France’s northwest Normandy region. The name ‘Le Havre’ simply translates as ‘the harbour’, reflecting the status of this active maritime city which boasts the oldest sailing club in France.

As one of the main ports in German-occupied France during the Second World War, it was flattened by the Allies, a sad chapter in its history. But it also meant the town became a blank canvas on which Auguste Perret painted a beautiful modern city in the typical 50s style. This new town has grown to become a major tourist destination, not least because of its long and well-equipped beach.

After your MSC Cruises liner has docked in Le Havre you can either choose to explore the city or venture with us further afield on one of our excursion packages. And, as always, we will ensure you get the best deals on all the local sights.

Art lovers will head straight for the Andre Malraux Museum, with its world-class collection that includes works of well-known impressionists painters such as Dufy, Monet, Renoir, Bonnard, Gauguin and Sisley. It’s actually worth leaving the ship for this alone, but you may also enjoy fantastic day trips available from Le Havre, including an outing to the Normandy Landing Beaches that’s sure to be an unforgettable day out for history fans.

Le Havre is a great starting point for many destinations including the cathedral city of Rouen and the charming seaside resort of Honfleur, and for a completely different experience you can even join us in France’s capital city Paris, known as the ‘city of light’.

    Diskretan i pomalo snobovski šarm
    Diskretan i pomalo snobovski šarm

    Odmor u južnoj Francuskoj oduševit će vas. Ovaj rajski vrt obuhvaća donje Alpe sa snježnim vrhovima i njihovo prigorje koje se na istoku spušta izravno u more, a na zapadu širi gotovo do Rhônea.


    Priobalna unutrašnjost sastoji se od niza strmih, šumovitih brda dok je obala promjenjivi niz geometrijskih zaljeva koji otvaraju put kaotičnim izdancima svjetlucavih stijena i dubokim, uskim usjeklinama poput minijaturnih fjordova – "calanques". Međutim, svi ti elementi ne bi značili ništa bez čarobnog mediteranskog svjetla. Tijekom proljeća i jeseni prikazuje se u najljepšem svjetlu, blage boje i izrazito bistro, kao da je neki stručnjak postavio osvjetljenje na svaki dio krajolika uz maksimalni raspon boja i uz najbolju kvalitetu slike, s minimalnim blještavilom. Krstarenje u južnu Francuskuizuzetna je prilika za izlet u glavni grad Rivijere, Nicu –živopisan i zanimljiv spoj utjecaja talijanske renesanse, raskoši razdoblja Belle Époque iprvoklasne umjetnosti.

    Istočno od gradaproteže se cesta koja s jedne strane gleda na visoke stijene dok na drugojgleda na padine prema moru, tzv. Corniche, čiji donji dio povezuje pitoreskneobalne gradove Villefranche,St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat i Beaulieu. Cestana takvoj uzvisini pruža jedanod najspektakularnijih obalnih doživljaja vožnje u Europi. Na navedenoj ruti visoko u brdima smjestilo se selo Èze asamo malo dalje u podnožju malena kneževina Monaco. Zapadnim dijelom regije dominiraju najbolje plaže – u blistavom Juan-les-Pinsu i u Cannesu, glamuroznom centru dizajnerske kupnje i filma.
