Honfleur, France

Any help regarding locations or sites to visit with three teenage children while visiting Honfleur would be appreciated. The trip will be in mid March hopefully, weather will cooperate with mild temperatures. We have the impression that there is a beautiful harbor and buildings, is this correct? Thank you

How about the Eric Satie museum. It's all hands on, interactive, and of course musical.

Ste. Catherine Church that looks like an overturned ship, Eugene Boudin Museum----check RS France for more specifics.

It will probably be too cold to eat at one of the many cafes around the bassin, but picturesque just to stroll around the perimeter.

Yes, there is a lovely harbor and lots of old buildings. It's fun to be there when fishing bots come in. There is also a maritime museum and a historical museum that are interesting, as well as an art museum. The Satie museum is a lot of fun and the music is great - he was a contemporary of Picasso, so it's not really classical, but very nice. If you have a car, the apple and cheese routes around the immediate area are scenic. Honfleur itself is very easy to get around on foot. Honfleur is one of my favorite places in France - I think your kids will love it.

You don't mention where you're from, but my family from the mid-Atlantic section of the the US took our winter coats, gloves, and hats for a late March trip that included Bayeux and Honfleur. Some days we didn't really need them but it's better to be prepared than miserable. If you dress for the weather you can enjoy strolling around the beautiful harbor.

Honfleur is beautiful. They have a wonderful art museum with lots of impressionist art.
