Martinique Travel Agent Specialist
I can guide you to a variety of interesting sites and attractions in Martinique. I love the island and enjoy planning trips to this Caribbean destination, which is part of the Lesser Antilles Island chain. The overseas region of France distinguishes itself with a blend of West Indian and French influences. Fort-de-France, the capital of Martinique and its main port, is the place you want to visit for embarking on an island adventure or for taking one of the island's sightseeing excursions. On your discovery tour, you are sure to see the headless statue of Napoleon's Empress Josephine, standing next to Place de la Savane. The statue has been vandalized numerous times because of the empress's insistence, historically, on maintaining the slave trade. Ironically, the statue stands directly across from the Bibliotheque Schoelcher, which was named in honor of Victor Schoelcher, an abolitionist and activist against the slavery in the French colonies. The building, once featured at the World Exposition in 1889, was disassembled and delivered to Martinque and the site where it now stands. After visiting some of the historic sites, it's always fun to visit the capital's craft market, which is always busy when cruise ships visit the port. One of the picture-perfect architectural structures in Forte-de-France is the small replica of Paris's Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre. You also will want to plan a visit to Martinique's Saint Pierre, home to the island's Volcanological Museum. As your Martinique travel agent and advisor, I can direct you to all the best places, to stay, dine, and shop on your island holiday.
