Rouen is a medieval masterpiece of a city with its magnificent cathedral, narrow cobbled streets and half-timbered buildings. Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake here. Rouen is a bustling modern city with lots to do, see and great places to eat the local French food.
Is there a local speciality?
Rouen Duck is definitely worth tasting and why not treat yourself at La Couronne, France’s oldest inn?
Any good activities around?
Take in the cities’ Fine Art Museum, then head up the Seine on the abbey trail up to Le Havre. Or cycle through the fruit orchards along the river.
When's market day?
Tuesday to Sunday morning market in the Place du Vieux-Marché
Interesting town fact
Throughout the summer, there is an amazing light show on the façade of the Cathedral from 11pm onwards.
