The harbour of Honfleur sits in a great location, tucked away on the southern side of the Seine's estuary. The town itself looks utterly enchanting, and it's where shipowners made fortunes from trade. It's also your gateway city to some of the most iconic spots in all of Europe - Paris' Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Consider taking a boat ride on the Seine, stroll the Champs-Élysées and climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe. Across the Seine lies Le Havre, once home to Claude Monet.
