Dieppe, France — 3 nights

Dieppe, famous for its scallops, is a seaside resort lively all year round.
Step out of the city life by going to Le Fleuve La Veules and Porte d’Aval. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Eglise Saint Jacques and Fishing Charters & Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Plage de Saint-Valery-en-Caux (in Saint-Valery-en-Caux), La Plage (in Veules-les-Roses) and Cote d'Albatre (in Etretat). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind Le Memorial du 19 Aout 1942, examine the collection at Musee de Dieppe, and make a trip to Chapelle Notre Dame de Bonsecours.

To see other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Dieppe route builder.

Luxembourg Province travel guide

Military Museums · Castles · Theme Parks
Separated from the neighboring country of the same name in 1839, French-speaking Luxembourg province contains a large section of the Ardennes, one of Europe's wildest regions. Belgium's largest province in terms of area, Luxembourg remains sparsely populated and heavily reliant on agriculture. Notable places to visit include Durbuy, reputed to be the world's smallest town, and Bastogne, the site of one of the last major German offensives in World War II. A paradise for active vacationers, the province offers an extensive network of marked cycling and walking paths, which meander through a tranquil countryside of medieval castles and quaint villages.
