This is funky ally that terminates at a plaza in front of the Church of Saint-Maclou. Beware there can be local automobile traffic nudging you along but by and large it is pedestrian, a delightful walk past porcelain crafters, stone carvers, bakers, cafes and other nifty artisan shops.

Rouen was completely charming, but this street in particular was very interesting with its old, half-timbered houses, tiny shops and historical buildings.

Some of the houses are starting to lean like the... More

Rue Saint-Romain is a street that if you spend several days in Rouen, you will find yourself walking down it often. After all, it is the street alongside the cathedral. But in its own right, there are things to explore on this street. First and foremost, the most famous teahouse in the city, Dame Cakes, is there. And there is... More

You can walk round this city and find the old building have been preserved. The old town is fantastic and needs to be visited. Time is the factor when you are visiting, just how much do you need to see all. The only adverse part id the cobbles on the roads its hard walking for some and very bouncy for... More

We loved walking round this historical town and seeing the medieval houses. It was easy to visualise life several hundred years ago.

The whole of medieval Rouen is just lovely. The narrow streets attractive buildings- interesting little shops and the fact that the old town is quite extensive makes Rouen an impressive town to visit. There are lots of cafés and restaurants.

Most of the central part of the old city looks this way with half timber medieval construction. Very charming!
