City Discoveries in Timeless Normandy

In the timeless land of Normandy, there are so many cities and towns that you simply cannot miss. From the UNESCO-listed seaside city of Le Havre, to the historical leisure town of Evreux, from the coastal gem of Granville to the cultural town of Alençon, each of them will surprise and amaze you.

You can select a couple of major cities based on transportation and locations and can then easily get into Normandy and start your journey in this timeless land. From coastal cities to medieval towns, from historical beaches to artistic cliffs, which will be your favourite place to explore?

ROUEN – MEDIEVAL AND TRENDY

Stretching beside the River Seine, Rouen, one of Europe’s greatest cities, is Normandy’s cultured, historic, gastronomic, vibrant capital. Monet’s canvases of the cathedral have made it the best-loved building in town, but many other glories stand out too. Parks and gardens have recently been created along the south bank, whilst on the other side of the river, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs line the quayside. You will definitely experience the pure spirit of Normandy here!

Caen - Step into history

Soaring church towers have embellished Caen’s skyline since William the Conqueror’s time. In World War II, D-Day operations kicked off just down the Orne river. Caen’s vast Memorial de museum is now dedicated to peace, while the Orne river is used by yachts heading for the central marina and lively city centre. Many bars and restaurants complete Caen’s offerings.

Dieppe - Enjoy sunshine on the coast

Dieppe is a real gem of a town. With its heart nestled in between two cliffs, its historic castle overlooking the rooftops, its wide seafront lawns and its ever-changing skies and seascapes, it has long been a favourite for cross-Channel visitors. In Dieppe, there is always something going on, from the world-famous kite festival to Europe’s only Canadian film festival, not forgetting the yummy herring fair held in November. Also, the town’s Saturday morning market was voted best in France in 2020!

CHERBOURG - WALK AROUND THIS BUSTLING CHANNEL PORT

Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, one of France’s great Channel ports, is closely linked to French naval history and to the transatlantic adventures. The Titanic even made its final stop here on its fateful journey, as recalled at the Cité de la Mer, one of the port’s main tourist attractions. Recently, the town’s busy quays have been refurbished and Cherbourg has become a popular port of call for cruise ships. Don’t miss the famous ‘Parapluies de Cherbourg’ umbrella factory if you like some off the beaten activities.
