Honfleur is a town surrounding a beautiful little 17th-century harbor in Lower Normandy.
Get out of town with these interesting Honfleur side-trips: Ville de Lisieux (Galerie l'Eveil des Arts, Sanctuaire Sainte Therese, &more), Ferme Manoir du Champ Versant (in Bonnebosq) and Manoir De Grandouet (in Cambremer). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Vieux Bassin, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Notre Dame de Bonsecours, try to win big at Casino Barriere de Deauville, and stroll through Plage de Benerville sur Mer.

There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Musee de la Tapisserie de Bayeux, step into the grandiose world of Chateau Guillaume-le-Conquerant, stroll the grounds of Normandy American Cemetery, and make a trip to Des Vagues Et des Mots Librairie.
