Description

We’ll meet up with our guide and set off on the tour on foot. Honfleur, the cradle of Impressionism, is located at the mouth of the Seine as it flows into the English Channel. Untouched by the passage of time, this small port has kept the landmarks of its rich past, making it today one of the most visited towns in France. We’ll begin with 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 set out for our coach tour of the Côte Fleurie, stopping for lunch on the way. Our first stop will be Deauville, one of the most prestigious seaside resorts in all of France. We’ll stroll along the famous boardwalk, built in 1923. After, we’ll continue on to the Château du Breuil. The Château du Breuil company produces its own cider, coming from a 100% natural fermentation. When the cider has reached its proper flavor, distillation can start and the process of making the quality Calvados begins. The tour will come to a close after enjoying a tasting, of course. We'll return on board in Rouen.
