Why locals recommend it
Centered around a horseshoe-shaped harbor, this walkable town in Normandy, two hours from Paris, is perfect for art lovers. Boudin and Monet painted many of their masterpieces here, and you can find gems at local galleries and art shops. It’s sometimes nice to escape the crowds at the Jardin des Personnalités, a beautiful garden at the end of the estuary. On a rainy afternoon, head into La Cave Honfleuraise to taste the famous, apple-based Norman liqueur, Calvados.
Tips from locals
Honfleur is just beautiful! It's very nice for a stroll, a bit of shopping and having coffee or drinks in one of the bars or restaurants. It does have excellent restaurants - see Tripadvisor because it gives the various budget options (!!)
Honfleur is excellent for everything from good restaurants, nightlife, shopping, museums, etc.
