An old Roman city, Boulogne is the largest port for fresh fish in Europe, as well as an important port for trade and passenger traffic, enjoying strong links with Britain. Although the town has a fairly severe appearance, it is lively and attractive, especially the upper part of the town which is surrounded by ramparts lined with footpaths. This town, which Napoleon chose as a base for his invasion of England (which never took place), is now famous for the Nausicaa seaworld centre.
