Description

Departure by coach for Pont l’Evêque, a charming Norman city. We’ll take a guided tour and see such sites as the gardens of the former Dominican convent, the 15th-century Church of Saint Michel, and of course, all the half-timbered facades that dot the city. We'll finish our tour with a tasting of the small, square-shaped cheese that has carried the town's name since the 12th century. We’ll then return to Honfleur for a guided tour on foot. We’ll begin our tour at the Vieux Bassin, one of the most charming sites in the city. Next, we’ll see Saint Catherine’s Church, the largest wooden church in France. It was listed as a historical monument in 1879 and has been the subject of scrupulous research by many archaeologists and historians. We'll then head for the original 17th-century Salt Halls (Greniers à Sel), now used for exhibitions, conferences and concerts. Our tour will finish with a visit to Saint Léonard Church. Destroyed during the Hundred Years’ War, it was rebuilt at the end of the 15th and beginning of the 16th centuries only to be partially burned down again during the Wars of Religion. We’ll return to our ship on foot.
