Absolute must

It is the heart of the city, you canot miss it. Fantastic pictures to be taken on a sunny day. Plenty of good restaurants all around the port. No surprise, you will experience a lot of crowd if the weather is nice.

A Perfect Day
Aug 2021
We spent a nearly perfect few hours in Honfleur. The amble around the old port made for a perfect afternoon. The views across the calm waters become more delightful with each and every step. This place drips history. As a Canadian, I felt a real connection with the town as it served as the embarkation point for many a journey to the new world for the explorers and traders of New France, not the least of whom was Samuel de Champlain. The streets off of the harbor are just as charming and contain the distinctive Ste Catherine's church. We had to press on to Rouen that evening but wish we could have stayed on for a port side dinner and evening stroll. Public parking is not free but it is ample and located a few minutes walk from the old port

Don't go in summertime
Sep 2021
The old harbour is as picturesque as ever, but even out of high season is heaving with visitors.

The streets around are congested and slow to negotiate - I guess the best way to arrive would be by boat!

Nice but overcrowded
Aug 2021 • Couples
Beautiful, nice views, but terribly overcrowded, especially at around lunch and dinnertime quite impossible to get through. Find other moments to go there.

Charming place to stay with your own boat.
Aug 2020
Le Vieux bassin is a charming place to stay. The terracesses and restaurants are near, but while we were here, there wasn't a lot of noise. Shops, bakeries, supermarket and restaurants are near. The bridge to this basin opens every hour.

Worth its reputation
Sep 2020
Honfleur is touristy for a reason and this place is it. It really is very charming, but don't eat on these quays: no single good restaurant here.

Beautiful

Busy busy busy and beautiful. Very scenic old port/harbour with absolutely loads of restaurants and quaint side streets to explore. Already planning a return.

Magical harbor
Jul 2020 • Family
Revisiting this harbor 20 years later with our kids. This was our first vacation together as a couple back then. This magical place has not changed. Restaurants and café surrounding the port. A beautiful place for a day out strolling around the harbor.

pittoresque panorama
Jul 2020
you'll have to come here several times during the day(s) to see the old bassin in different lights on different sides, but each view is nice and pittoresque.
