Le Havre to WW II sites and Mont St. Michelle

by Kaesebier

We are terminating a cruise in Le Havre. We would like to go to the WW II normandy sites the day we arrive and then to Mont St. Michelle the next morning. We plan to stay the night somewhere and then take a train to Paris at the end of the second day. Would we be better off to stay in Caen or Bayeux and how would we get there from Le Havre. Thanks, Carol

Caen or Bayeux both have plenty to offer. And they are close to each other so you don't really have to chose, you could visit both.

Caen has the Musee de la Paix which is a moving monument to peace and a great introduction to WWII and the Normandy sites.

Bayeux has the unsurpassably beautiful tapestries (at least 500 years old) which is in fact a nearly 70 metres long embroidered comic strip of the Normandy conquest of England. That's a definite must-see.

In Bayeux I stayed at the Lion d'Or hotel. It's a renowned hotel. The photos in the corridors are fun to look at: famous guests like presidents, royalty, rich and famous from many decennia ago.
The prices are not over the top, 90-120 euro for a standard room.

The train schedules are at www.voyages-sncf.com.
There you get the fast trains and the local trains.

You should be able to work it out. Don't try the English 'version', it brings you to the TGV website.

Best to wait for good pedmar, who has all answers to questions France :-)

In the good pedmar's absence, you should be able to get some useful information from the many similar Q&A in the Basse-Normadie forum.

http://forum.virtualtourist.com/forum-50-1-Travel-Basse_Normandie-1-forum.html

For example, the Normandy beaches are in a fairly rural area and getting there from Le Havre may be better done by bus - look for Lignes 20 and 39 Express on the website mentioned below.

Brush up your French while looking at the local bus company website

The train route from Le Havre to Caen takes you through Rouen, but a quick look at the timetables suggest a wait of around hour between trains there and an overall journey time of 3 hours or more.

Hope that helps.

I'm thinking, if it is at all possible, you'd be best off to hire a car in Le Havre which you can drop off at Paris or at a place where you can catch a train to Paris.

If I remember correctly, it's about 100 kms from Le Havre to Caen/Bayeux and another 130 or so from Caen to Mont St Michel. It takes sooo much time with public transportation, whereas we're look at about less than 3 hours for the whole stretch by car (Le Havre - M St M).
I always enjoy driving around in France, and you easily get to off the beaten path places or difficult to reach places (of which M St M is certainly one).

Take Caen. There is so much WWII history in that town.
You NEED to visit the large museum in Caen which is about WWII. You can spend hours in there. It is by far the best museum I've been to!!!

Re: Le Havre to WW II sites and Mont St. Michelle

That's the Musee de la Paix, andreja, that I mentioned earlier.
I agree with you that it is one of the best museums I ever saw.

Perhaps this is easier:

Travel Tips for Le Havre

Friendliness

by aemilys

I guess this just stands out to me because I have grown so accustomed to Parisian indifference but these people are friendly (at least in the off season). Drivers actually stop to let pedestrians cross! You can ask for information and it will be given to you! and it will be correct! The people of Le Havre are proud of their city and they seem to want you to have a good time too. When my camera card died the photo shop people were kind and sympathetic (and this was in a shopping center). The hotel staff was well informed. The guy at the bookshop gave me tons of information and don't forget the world's neatest barbershop!! Thanks Le Havre, I had an excellent weekend.
