Rue Saint-Romain, Rouen

4.3
#13 of 24 in Sightseeing in Rouen
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • This is a wonderful place to stroll and enjoy all of the various forms of architecture, from fairly modern to that which has withstood the test of time and war. It is also a prime shopping venue.  more »

  • 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.
  • Surprisingly affordable given the location right next to the Cathedral, great food, friendly staff.
  • One of the reasons I go to Rouen is to eat at Le Saint Romain. The food, service and value are always, by my standards, of the best.
  • Good food, reasonably affordable prices, friendly staff. It took until the order has been recorded and the food came.

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.
