Where is locate the Port of Le Havre

Travelling around the port of Le Havre (Paris)

The walking distance to downtown Le Havre is 30 minutes. A pedestrian lane is well identified on the ground and by signs. A shuttle service is usually offered by the cruise line (sometimes a fee is charged).
Taxis and rental cars are available at the port. Taxis offer a variety of excursions, which can be an economical and more intimate solution if you are a group of 4 people.
A trolley/tourist bus also travels around the city and goes to the port.

To get to Paris from Le Havre, you can take the train. The train to St-Lazare station (Paris) has departures every hour or so. For more information, visit the SNCF website or RailEurope.com. The journey is almost 3 hours in each direction. You have to plan your schedule and plan for train delays (and sometimes strikes) so you don’t get back to the boat too late.

Once in Paris, the metro, taxis and walking are the best travel options. Be careful to get back to the boat in time for departure!

The city centre of Le Havre was rebuilt by Auguste Perret. Climb to the top of the City Hall tower for an interesting view of the city.

Landmarks

St. Joseph’s Church is distinguished by an octagonal lantern tower, 110 metres high.

Historical sites

Tours are offered to visit the historic sites of the Normandy landings of the Second World War and their museums. Beware, the majority of cruise lines offer excursions to historic sites related to Americans and not Canadians. For the story of Canada’s involvement in the landing, visit Juno Beach Center.

Museums

Its Impressionist collections are the second-largest in France after those of the Orsay. Fauvism is also fully represented.

The House of the Armateur is, due to its 18th century architecture and its interior composition organized around a central skylight, an emblematic museum of the history of Haiti.

Located in the former courtroom of the 18th century, it presents collections of paleontology, zoology as well as 8000 drawings and manuscripts of the naturalist Charles Alexandre Lesueur (collection unique in Europe).

Beaches

The beach bordered by a promenade

The beach, lined with a promenade and a large bike path, is dotted with bars and restaurants.

Nearby

The city of Paris is about two and a half hours from Le Havre. The excursions will leave you approximately 4 to 6 hours in Paris. Needless to say, this is clearly insufficient to appreciate the charms of Paris. Given this short stay, it is more prudent and much less stressful to take the excursions planned by the cruise company.

(in French)

This pretty little town, a 17th century port, is known for its churches (wooden), historic buildings and art galleries. It was from there that Champlain set out to found Quebec. Honfleur is located near Le Havre, on the other side of the Normandy Bridge.

(in French)

Rouen is the historic capital of Normandy. A city with 100 steeples, you will see several churches such as Notre Dame Cathedral. It was also here that Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431. Also visit the Big Clock. Trips to Rouen usually combine a visit to Monet’s house.

This Abbey is perched on a 264-foot-tall mountain. Water begins to surround the Abbey about two hours before high tide. Check the Mont-Saint-Michel website for the schedule.
