Le Havre, in French, literally means 'The Harbor' and is the second largest port in France, after the town of Marseilles. As a large port town, Le Havre boasts the largest population in all of Normandy, with hundreds of thousands of shipping containers coming in and going out on a daily basis.
After waking up here, you'll enjoy a light breakfast and some time to tour the town, its narrow street ways, and industrial vibe. We'll organize a morning drop-in to CrossFit Le Havre, one of the biggest boxes in all of France, before heading out to the port town of Hornfléur.
After a quick lunch and shower, we'll hop across the Seine River to the port town of Hornfleur, known for its old, beautiful picturesque harbor, and slate-covered houses painted in a variety of colors. Hornfleur is also home to The Sainte-Catherine church, the largest church made out of wood in France. You'll have a few hours to explore the Port d'Honfleur before we make our way just 45 minutes away to the town of Caen, the first city to be liberated by the Allies during the Invasion of Normandy.
We'll stay in Caen for the evening, and you'll be able to tour this small town of 100,000 people where they have everything from a 'Memorial For Peace' at the Caen WW2 Museum, to the Chateaux de Caen. We'll do a walking tour, and the rest of the evening is going to be yours to explore. There are several outdoor memorials commemorating the Battle of Caen, Tickets to the museums and walking tour of Caen are included!
