Private Le Havre on Foot

Located at the mouth of the Seine, Le Havre is a port city that is also the harbor for Paris, receiving goods from oceanic vessels and transferring them up the Seine. This bustling commerce hub was flattened in September 1944 during the Battle of Normandy, killing 5,000 residents.

During this private tour you will see how Le Havre rose like a phoenix out of the ashes with the post-war construction of architect Auguste Perret, who is commonly referred to as a poet in concrete thanks to his traditional yet innovative approach to the city's restoration.

Admire the scenery as you walk down Rue Emile Renouf Avenue Foch, then visit the Town Hall with its tower that provides a wonderful overview of the layout of the city. See Saint Joseph's Church, a key project of Perret's with its glass-lined tall tower. At Saint Roch Gardens you will learn of its beginnings as a leper colony before conversion to an 18th century cemetery that today is a tranquil sanctuary with stunning rose gardens.

Along the way, soak in the French ambience and the light that inspired Claude Monet to paint his masterpiece Impression Sunrise in 1872, the work lending its name to the Impressionist movement. Following the tour, you will have the opportunity to shop and explore Le Havre further on your own.
