Le Havre is a city located on the coast of the English Channel, roughly two hours northwest of Paris. While for many years it has been used as a highly popular route for travel and transport between the two countries by water, Le Havre has emerged as a charming place to visit and is definitely worth spending some time exploring. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Le Havre is both easy and economical.
Since early days, life in Le Havre has been centred around the impressive harbour, which is a great place to start exploring the city. Park your car hire near the harbour and set off to explore the waterside attractions. With many historic stone buildings dating back to the 1600s, there is plenty to see here, and the huge number of boats and yachts moored in the harbour is an impressive sight in itself also.
If you are arriving by ship across the English Channel, you can pick up your car hire in Le Havre on arrival, and be off to start seeing the sights at your own pace. Often overlooked as a travel destination, Le Havre does have a great deal of historic buildings, especially churches that are worth seeing. The most famous of them, Saint Joseph's Church, is an icon of the city, and towers an impressive 107m above the streets below. Equally impressive is Le Havre Cathedral, which while not as tall, dates way back to the 1500s.
For fans of art, history and culture, there are a number of museums in Le Havre which are great to check out, especially the Natural History Museum, and the Malraux Museum which houses a very grand art collection.
For a great day trip, jump in your car hire and drive roughly 30km north of Le Havre to Etretat. A cozy town also located on the coastline, Etretat is home to brilliant white cliffs which tower over the water below, as well as some picturesque beaches which are particularly worth a visit during summer.
