Very interesting and carefully laid out to make the climb to the top not seem so daunting. Once there the views are excellent.

Worth going down the busy shopping street to have a look. Look underneath the arch for a high relief sculpture.

We went to visit the large clock, just before we travelled home, and it was well worth the visit, and only 7 euros per person, including the audio .

Lovely place, very quaint with a lovely atmosphere. Plenty of eateries and drinking places. Expensive in this area though. Nice time of year to visit, weather is beautiful.

A very pleasant amble to the cathedral lined by historic buildings housing a wide variety of shops and cafes.

I know this place thanks to an Instagramer. Most of his photos are only about this place which makes me really curious. Actually, we could go to the top of this, but it costs more than 5euro (as I remember). Great place to take photos.

From the cathedral, to Gros Horlagge, to the Joan d'Arc Memorial, and tons of shops and restaurants in between this street had everything I was looking for in Rouen.

Wandering through the historic centre, this stunning piece of history had me returning again and again to have another look....for confirmation that I was actually experiencing this and it wasn't a dream from a fairytale. I have photos from every angle....and more. I'm still breath-taken...More

The main tourist street in Rouen is marked by the large clock and the clock tower. The street is filled with all sorts of shops--known brands as well as little eateries and take-out places (good for grabbing a quick lunch). One can easily entertain oneself...More
