|28/8/19||St. Helier, Jersey (United Kingdom)||0800h||2200h|
|Until the 18th century, St. Helier consisted only of a series of houses, shops and warehouses that stretched along the coastal dunes on both sides of the local church. Today, St. Helier is an important international financial center and the capital of the largest and southernmost canal island, located in the bay of Mont St. Michel. With the Norman-style farmhouses, the narrow winding country lanes, the small fields and the French street names, the French influence is more than once apparent on the enchanting island. The remnants of the fortifications, however, are a reminder of the German occupation during World War II.|
|29/8/19||St. Peter Port, Guernsey (England)||0700h||1700h|
|For more than 800 years, Cornet Castle has watched over St. Peter Port. The attractive town charms with its cobblestone streets, steep flights of stairs and winding lanes winding between the houses down to the picturesque shores bordered by gray and white stone houses.
Geographically, Guernsey is closer to France than England, but nonetheless remains loyal to the British crown. This fact is reflected in the charming Anglo-French atmosphere of the city. The second largest canal island has a wonderful coastline with beautiful bays, and in the midst of the idyllic pastures one sees again and again the beautiful, often award-winning Guernsey dairy cows. The duty-free harbor area is ideal for shopping.
|30/8/19||Le Havre (France)||0600h||1200h|
|Le Havre is one of France’s major seaports and lies at the mouth of the Seine on the English Channel about 240 kilometers northwest of Paris.
The city was founded around the year 1500. Today, Le Havre is one of the greenest cities in France, and despite being heavily bombed during World War II, a substantial portion of Gothic architecture has been preserved in the city center. It was awarded in 2005 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Numerous impressive museums and galleries make Le Havre an ideal base from which to explore more Normandy and visit the nearby Allied landing beaches during World War II.
