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’.

    On leaving the port you will reach Honfleur, a tiny town known for its picturesque harbour and beautifully preserved old buildings with slate-covered frontages. A favourite motif of many a painter, Honfleur is known to have particularly inspired Gustave Courbet, Claude Monet, Eugène Boudin and Johan Jongkind, collectively referred to as the Honfleur school. You will have enough time to spend in this delightful village on your own. Enjoy the olde-worlde feel of the narrow streets lined with timber-framed houses and be sure to visit Sainte-Catherine Church, France's largest church made entirely of wood. The church also features bell tower that is separate from the main building. The tour concludes with your return to the ship.

    This all-day excursion will give you an opportunity to see some of the major sights of France's magnificent capital city and find out why Paris is known worldwide for its elegance and grandeur. On leaving the port of Le Havre, a leisurely three-hour drive will take you to Paris for a chance to discover this eternally romantic city and its boundless culture. The special splendour of the Champs-Élysées - proudly referred to as "the most beautiful avenue in the world” by the French - awaits you just as the modernity of the Eiffel Tower, which was considered to be a marvel of modern engineering when it was built in 1889. At a height of 324 metres, it is the tallest building in Paris and the second-tallest in the whole of France. You will have approx. 2 hours free time to explore the area around Place de la Concorde or reach the Gothic Notre Dame Cathedral. No tour of Paris would be complete without a chance to view this famous Paris landmark; during your free time you will have the opportunity to have lunch on your own and/or visit this outstanding Gothic landmark on your own. With the cornerstone laid in 1163 and the building finally completed in 1345, the cathedral took a staggering 182 years to build. Before returning to Le Havre, your tour will take you through other lovely parts of Paris, with a short photo stop at the Eiffel Tower. Please note: all the sites will be visited from outside. Guests will be met by guides in Paris. Transfers to and from the port will be unguided.

    Considered to be the historical capital of Normandy, Rouen is located on the north bank of the river Seine, some 1.5 hours from the sea port of Le Havre. Your guide will introduce you to the old part of the town and take you on a walk down the city's narrow streets, which are lined with more than 700 timber-framed houses. Enjoy the special atmosphere of Rue St. Romain and then reach the so-called Gros Horloge - an astronomical clock from the 16th century - located in the aptly named Rue du Gros Horloge. The tour then continues on to the Roman Catholic Rouen Cathedral with its Gothic architecture and its so-called "Butter Tower”, which was built in the early 16th century with money appropriated from the local population for the indulgence of eating butter. It has also featured as the famous subject of a series of paintings by Claude Monet. Before returning you to the ship, the last stop on the tour is the "Place du Vieux Marché”, the site where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake, at the centre of which stands the modern Church of Saint Joan of Arc. Please note: if the call falls on a Sunday the visit to the Cathedral will be around the exterior only. Conservative attire is recommended for visiting sites of religious importance.

    Leave the port of Le Havre for a 2.5-hour drive across the attractive Normandy countryside to the wonderful Mont Saint Michel, known as "the wonder of the west” due to its unique island setting, rich history and beautiful architecture.

    With its lovely countryside, wooded valleys, apple orchards, dairy farms and reputation for producing fabulous cheeses, some of the world's best cider and the appellation contrôlée-protected Calvados, Normandy is just the sort of place of which you'll want to get a taste. After boarding a modern coach at the pier and leaving the port in Le Havre via the super-modern, cable-stayed Normandy Bridge, you can first look forward to an approx. 1.5-hour drive through the lush landscape of the Auge region to reach Le Breuil-en-Auge. The tiny village is home to the gorgeous 16th-/17th-century Château du Breuil, the residence of several notable families over the years and now a Calvados distillery that forms your first stop. Your tour of the Château will provide a fascinating insight into the way in which the famous apple brandy ages in oak casks in the castle's deep cellars. A chance to taste some of the excellent brandy distilled at the Château will round off your visit to this spirited place. More wonderful views then await you on the drive to Beuvron-en-Auge, a real jewel of a place with meticulously maintained historical buildings and pristine streets that has been voted one of the most beautiful villages in France by an independent association named "Les Plux Beaux Villages de France”. Don't forget your camera to capture the beauty of this special spot for posterity as you spend some free time exploring the village and its wonderful timber-framed houses. A relaxing return drive to Le Havre and your ship then brings the tour to a close.

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.
