  • Since my childhood I come to the garden of plants, and I've always found this beautiful park. It's a few months that I didn't come and what was my surprise to discover a totally horrible Park! black water in the basins, we see nothing through so she is black, thousands of mosquitoes inside, plants wilted for a nice long time huge disgusting fungi and a smell of sea... what you it?

  • We decided to visit these gardens since neighboring attractions were closed because after 18.00, pretty cool especially for those who love nature there are several varieties of flowers and plants and my daughter had a blast running around to squirrels and rabbits that "populate" the place.

Where to stay in Rouen

If your main reason for visiting Rouen is its famous cathedral, which inspired Monet to paint dozens of canvasses, consider booking your room at a hotel in or around the city center. Despite being within walking distance of the cathedral and the river, hotels in this area provide comfort and privacy at modest prices. If you're looking to splurge and location isn't your priority, think about staying at a luxurious hotel-spa situated farther outside the city, where you can have access to heated outdoor pools.
