Honfleur, a small mediaeval town, reveals her riches to all those who take the time to look... Over 1.000 years old, always facing the sea and closely connected to its river, Honfleur has preserved many of its monuments. Today, nearly 3.6 million visitors come to Honfleur every year from all over the world, making Honfleur one of the most visited cities in France.
Veritable gateway to Paris and the ocean, the port of Honfleur has become one of the top destinations on the Channel-Atlantic stretch.
