Great way to spend a day walking around this 13th century town. Step back in time and relax and eat and browse the churches and shops.

We visited here during a morning walking tour while our Vantage river cruise ship was docked in Honfleur. This is the heart of the Honfleur port with the most picturesque setting…like something out of a painting or postcard. It is surrounded by shops, restaurants with...More

This is France. Small village. Delightful bakeries. Carousel. Flowers. Sailboats. Cafes. And friendly - yes, friendly - French citizens. Bring your camera and walk around. You'll be pleased,

We went in July just before the season really started and probably saw the basin at its best, under blue skies and not too busy. It is really worth a walk around and do have a meal even though it is fairly ordinary food just...More

We enjoyed watching the boats in the harbor and all the people that gather here. There are many nice restaurants and shops in the area.

Lovely place to have a drink and people watch. Was fairly busy when we were there but not over crowded. Lots of comings and goings and few busters about. Very picturesque and you could spend long time just admiring all the buildings and different styles.

Honfleur is a beautiful town with lots to see and some interesting old buildings. The restaurants around the basin are good but venture up some of the side streets where they are just as good but can be cheaper and there are some lovely shops.
