Rue Saint-Romain, Rouen

4.5
#17 of 70 in Things to do in Rouen
Named for the seventh-century archbishop of the city, Rue Saint-Romain runs near the city's cathedrals. The street is so picturesque that it's been captured the eye of many famous painters over the years, including Camille Pissarro , Eugène Boudin, and Charles Pinet. This street is alluring because it has changed so little since the Middle Ages. From the half-timber houses to the cobblestone-covered street still grooved from carriage wheels, you can feel the history here with each step. Our Rouen online itinerary planner makes visiting Rue Saint-Romain and other Rouen attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The left side of the Cathedral, houses houses typical of the 15th century-17TH with the colombages or lattices of wood on the facade, as well as the playground of booksellers, with the door of the same name.

  • Traditional old style creperie serving a good wide variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. Good sea food choices and lots of desert options. Accompanied with local strong ciders. Popular restaurant so may have to get lucky if you don't reserve a table. Quick and friendly service.
  • Nice French crepes ! In a cosy/farmland atmosphere.
  • Really helpful and friendly staff great service, had access ramp for mobility scooter. Excellent food and cider, would recommend.
  • Under 10€ for two pots of tea and a delicious crepe with chocolate sauce. Great service, would highly recommend for a snack!
  • The galettes are good, staff and prices are friendly. And this right next to the cathedral. Above expectation!
