About these ratings

You should brush up on your French before visiting Fort-de-France's beautiful La Savane park (La Savane des Esclaves), then put your vocabulary to use when bargaining with the Martiniquais vendors selling snacks, crafts and souvenirs. Take a stroll of the grounds before you leave, and be sure to snap a photo of the headless (and red-stained) marble statue of Empress Josephine, a Martinique native and the first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte. Rumor has it that locals vandalized the statue out of resentment; they believe Josephine persuaded Bonaparte to continue the practice of slavery on the island. La Savane is a public park open at any time of day.
