Rue Saint-Romain, Rouen

4.4
#16 of 74 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 street runs along the north side of the Cathedral. Having preserved its medieval charm, it offers many small shops attractive (chocolate, tea,...) as well as the Joan of Arc Museum. It offers beautiful views of the Cathedral and its spire, don't forget to look up to the sky!

  • 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.
  • Under 10€ for two pots of tea and a delicious crepe with chocolate sauce. Great service, would highly recommend for a snack!
  • Really helpful and friendly staff great service, had access ramp for mobility scooter. Excellent food and cider, would recommend.
  • The galettes are good, staff and prices are friendly. And this right next to the cathedral. Above expectation!
  • Didn't realise it was a creperie. Thought it was just another pub. Nice place though.

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.
