Welcome to Le Havre! I am retired but still very active. I have sailed round Europe and travelled throughout the world. Le Havre is my adopted city and I live for part of the year in an apartment in the city centre rebuilt by Auguste Perret and spend the rest of my time on a yacht in the Canary Islands. I would like to take you on a tour of the city centre and the seafront. If you have your own car, we can go down to the container port and watch the balletic spectacle of the gantries as they load the containers onto enormous vessels. In showing you Le Havre, I hope to return some of the pleasure that I have received from all the hospitality extended to me by the residents of places that I have visited.
Where I will take you:
• The reconstructed city centre and the seafront
• The cargo port
