Pont Gustave Flaubert, Rouen

2.5
#16 of 24 in Sightseeing in Rouen
Bridge Tourist Spot
Pont Gustave Flaubert is a vertical-lift bridge over the River Seine that officially opened in September of 2008 after four years of work. The bridge location chosen ensures that it is the last crossing before the river flows to the open sea. The bridge serves a similar purpose to that of the venerable Tower Bridge in London--providing a visit break between port and city.

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.
