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’.

    Francia

    Un discreto y delicado encanto chic
    Un discreto y delicado encanto chic

    Unas vacaciones por el sur de Francia te llevarán hasta el paraíso. Este Jardín del Edén encierra las cimas nevadas de los Bajos Alpes y sus colinas somontanas, que por el este descienden hasta el mar y por el oeste llegan casi hasta el Ródano.


    El interior se caracteriza por una cadena de escarpadas colinas boscosas; mientras que la zona de la costa es una siempre cambiante serie de bahías de aspecto casi geométrico, que a veces dan paso a aglomerados de escollos de piedra brillante y a ensenadas estrechas y profundas que parecen fiordos noruegos en miniatura, las calanques. Pero todos estos elementos serían insignificantes sin esa luz mediterránea tan especial. Mágica en primavera y en otoño y al mismo tiempo suave y brillante de una manera teatral, confiere a cada paisaje el máximo color y definición sin destellos. Un crucero por el sur de Francia es una buena oportunidad para visitar la capital de la Riviera, Niza, una vibrante y cautivadora mezcla de influencia italiana, decadente esplendor Belle Époque y arte de primera.

    Al este, la baja Corniche conecta los pintorescos pueblecitos costeros de Villefranche, St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat y Beaulieu; las altas carreteras ofrecen algunos de los paisajes de costa más espectaculares por los que puedes conducir en Europa, de camino a Èze y el pequeño principado de Mónaco. Las mejores playas están al oeste de la Riviera, en la viva Juan-les-Pins y en Cannes, la ostentosa ciudad famosa por sus tiendas de grandes firmas y por su festival de cine.
