Mont Saint Michel
Built on a rocky island and surrounded by a magnificent bay, Mont Saint Michel is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the most visited sites in France.
It’s a veritable museum city unto itself. You can visit the Notre Dame Cathedral, stroll through its cobbled streets… It is here, in the old market square, that Joan of Arc was burned alive in 1431. It is also nicknamed « the city of 100 steeples ».
Honfleur is a tourist mecca. Visit the city of painters and walk along the old basin, it is lined with many restaurants of all kinds.
Meet in the city of William the Conqueror. This city is rich of more than 1000 years of history. A very popular city for shopping, you will be pleasantly surprised by the beauty of its houses built in Caen stone.
Of course, you can’t come to Normandy without going through Etretat. These cliffs have inspired many artists. A direct connection with nature!
Deauville is known worldwide for its festival. You can’t miss its casino and its beautiful beach…
Normandy is also the landing of June 6, 1944 on its beaches. Millions of visitors come every year to gather there.
