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 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.

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.

    SOMETHING SPECIAL

    HAV08

    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.

法国

一种独特而略带高傲的魅力
一种独特而略带高傲的魅力

法国南部度假将带给您天堂般的享受。 这个“伊甸园”覆盖了白雪见顶的阿尔卑斯矮山及其山麓,向东延伸入海,向西几乎延伸到罗纳河(Rhône)。


这片沿海腹地由一系列陡峭而树木丛生的山丘组成,而岸边是一系列不断变化的几何形状的海湾。这些海湾被露出地面、闪烁微光的嶙峋裸岩环抱,这里又深又窄的水道入口就像微型峡湾—— 也被称为狭海湾。 然而,如果没有那神奇的地中海之光,所有这些景色都将黯然失色。 在春天和秋天最美好的时分,这里的光线感觉既柔和又如舞台般明亮,仿佛有专家为每一处景观调整了照明,让其呈现出最佳的色彩、清晰度,同时尽量避免了眩光。 去法国南部航行是参观蔚蓝海岸(Riviera)之都尼斯(Nice)的好机会。尼斯是极具活力而又迷人的文化交融之地,既受意大利风格的影响,也留有美好时代(Belle Époque)曾经的辉煌,同时还汇集了一流的艺术之作。

在尼斯城以东,滨海路(Corniche) 下段连接着风景如画的海滨小镇滨海自由城(Villefranche)、圣让卡弗尔拉(St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat)和滨海博略(Beaulieu);道路上段则是欧洲最为壮观的沿海行驶路径之一,途径位于高地之上的艾泽村(Èze) 和小巧的摩纳哥公国。 蔚蓝海岸的西半部自称拥有最好的海滩 ——就在活力多姿的朱安雷宾 (Juan-les-Pins)和戛纳(Cannes),那里是五光十​​色的名牌购物和电影文化中心。
