The old harbour is beautiful. It is a popular yacht-mooring place but even more, it is a very popular tourist 'trap'. Restaurants and shops which surround it can charge a premium.

This old port is simply perfect. After visiting is easy understand why so many artists painted it through the years.

Beautifully situated at the hart of the city with good bars around it. You can see old vessels, walk along the harbour and then jump into the old town. If you care for a drink, you will find many nice bars and terasses around it.

A visit to Honfleur is not complete without a walk around the basin. It is heavily touristed, but worth a walk around. Beautiful town.
