  • The street is essential when you visit rouen. Very nice place with a commercial activity that allows you to stroll all afternoon without realizing it.

  • Nice shops, beautiful timber-frame houses and an impressive clock. You will find also restaurants enough. For me Rouen's most beautiful Street.

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.
