UNESCO-listed Le Havre is a must-see destination for architecture fans. Largely destroyed by bombing in the second world war, it was entirely rebuilt between 1945 and 1964 by architect Auguste Perret in a bold and innovative style.
Today its sweeping esplanades and wide boulevards are home to some of Normandy’s finest shops and restaurants, and art lovers will love the MUMA modern art museum with its 19th and 20th century collections.
From Le Havre, drive over the iconic Pont-de-Normandie to Honfleur – a bustling market town and ancient harbour, with a stunning old quarter where the glorious surroundings and atmosphere that have inspired many great artists.
