Honfleur is a town surrounding a beautiful little 17th-century harbor in Lower Normandy.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Palais Benedictine and Saint Catherine's Catholic Church. Explore hidden gems such as Deauville Beach and Basilique Notre-Dame de Bonsecours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honfleur: Falaises d'Etretat (in Etretat) and Rouen (Rue du Gros-Horloge & Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint Helier, stop by Bicose, and don't miss a visit to Vieux Bassin.

To find traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Honfleur trip planner.

Paris to Honfleur is an approximately 2- hour car ride. You can also take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 8°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Mon) so you can drive to Bayeux.
