"Titanic returns to Cherbourg", brand new exhibition at La Cité de la Mer
Opening Spring 2012 in Cherbourg, Manche

The Titanic 2012 exhibition is to be held in the extension of La Cité de la Mer, entirely dedicated to human undersea exploration. A hundred years after the most famous shipwreck of all times, the exhibition will retrace the history of European emigration to the New World and visitors will relive the last crossing of the Titanic through moving tales of the tragedy's witnesses, and in particular through the eyes of passengers who boarded the Titanic in Cherbourg on 10th April 1912.

Once upon a time, the Mont Saint-Michel was to become an island again, Manche

The building of a lightweight bridge replacing the actual causeway is still under way, and the new parking area (located 1.5 mile from the Mont) is scheduled for opening on 28th April 2012. Parking fees, drop-off fees and options to reach the Mont are now available: on foot as in past times, or onboard the new bi-directional shuttle buses or horse-drawn tire-mounted shuttles.
