Introduction

Le Havre, France

Sail to a beacon of modern architecture on your Northern Europe cruise holiday. Le Havre is a large port town in France’s northwest Normandy region. The name ‘Le Havre’ simply translates as ‘the harbour’, reflecting the status of this active maritime city which boasts the oldest sailing club in France.

As one of the main ports in German-occupied France during the Second World War, it was flattened by the Allies, a sad chapter in its history. But it also meant the town became a blank canvas on which Auguste Perret painted a beautiful modern city in the typical 50s style. This new town has grown to become a major tourist destination, not least because of its long and well-equipped beach.

After your MSC Cruises liner has docked in Le Havre you can either choose to explore the city or venture with us further afield on one of our excursion packages. And, as always, we will ensure you get the best deals on all the local sights.

Art lovers will head straight for the Andre Malraux Museum, with its world-class collection that includes works of well-known impressionists painters such as Dufy, Monet, Renoir, Bonnard, Gauguin and Sisley. It’s actually worth leaving the ship for this alone, but you may also enjoy fantastic day trips available from Le Havre, including an outing to the Normandy Landing Beaches that’s sure to be an unforgettable day out for history fans.

Le Havre is a great starting point for many destinations including the cathedral city of Rouen and the charming seaside resort of Honfleur, and for a completely different experience you can even join us in France’s capital city Paris, known as the ‘city of light’.

    個性あふれる、気高き国の魅力
    個性あふれる、気高き国の魅力

    南フランスの休日で、この世のものとは思えない体験を。 南フランスはまるでエデンの園。雪を頂くプレアルプスの連峰と山麓に囲まれ、東は地中海、西はローヌ川近くまで広がります。


    沿岸地域は、森林に覆われた険しい丘陵地帯が広がり、海岸線は、ほのかなきらめきを放つ岩だらけの断崖に囲まれた細くて深い入り江が延々と続く、カランケと呼ばれる小さなフィヨルドのような地形を形成しています。 これらすべてが、まるで魔法のような地中海の輝きに彩られ、一層の魅力を放ちます。 南フランスは、春と秋がベストシーズン。やわらかな太陽の光と鮮やかな色彩に包まれた風景は、まるで舞台芸術のよう。一つひとつの風景がまるで計算されたように、最小限の照明で、最大限の輝きと色彩を放っています。 南フランスを巡るクルーズは、リビエラ海岸の中心都市、ニースを訪れる絶好の機会。この街には、明るく魅力あふれるイタリア文化と、素晴らしい芸術が花開いたベルエポックの華やかさが共存しています。

    街の東には、コルニッシュ(Corniche)と呼ばれる断崖道路が3本延びています。一番低い場所を通るコルニッシュは、絵画のように美しい海辺の街、ビルフランシュ、サン・ジャン・カップ・フェラ、ボーリューを通っています。その上を通る2本のコルニッシュは、ヨーロッパ随一の絶景を誇る海岸道路で、美しい入り江の村、エズと小さなモナコ公国へと続いています。 リビエラ海岸の西側には、このエリアで最も美しいビーチが点在し、きらびやかなジュアン・レ・パンや、華やかなデザイナーショップと映画祭で有名なカンヌがあります。
