“Fabulous clock and chocolate shop(Auzou)”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is a must see street for the two reasons above. The great clock(Gros Horlodge) which, was moved from a gothic belfry in 1527 and the chocolate specialist Auzou. The chocolate and other goodies are not the cheapest but, you really do get what you pay for in this case.

“Classic”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Classic example of French history. Nice to walk down the passage and look over. We did not get in but we quite enjoyed the view.

“Unique”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Beautiful piece of history. Try visiting at different time of the day for good pictures.
The old Rouen is very nice. Alas as many other touristic places in Europe, Gypsies and pickpockets are all over the place despite an obvious presence of the police forces. Keep your belonging close to you at all time.

“Beauty”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This clock is so impressive in a very quaint street but I was continually drawn back to the clock it is worth seeing. Visited May 2008

“Beautiful but full of beggars and gypsies”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

A beautiful street to see especially the clock tower. Be every careful of the gypsie pickpockets and there'd are beggars everywhere and people sleeping in the street. What a shame for a beautiful street.
