A taste of France with a Normand touch !
Head into the heart of the city, stroll down the pedestrian streets and visit the authentic town of Cherbourg. Enjoy a coffee and a croissant on a terrace; treat yourself to a “patisserie”; taste the local food products in delicatessens and restaurants; and discover the clothing made right here in Cherbourg. Shopaholics won’t be disappointed with the wide range of shops in the old town or in the modern indoor shopping mall.
