The Old Quarter is the most picturesque part of the city, and a gentle walk will reveal its ancient winding, cobbled streets and interesting landmarks. Hear fascinating insights into the city’s rich history and see the place where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431. The most magnificent building of all is the Cathedral of Notre Dame, and you can appreciate the beauty of its architecture during a guided visit.

Other gems include the Great Clock, the Palace of Justice and the beautifully decorated façade of the Church of St-Maclou. Enjoy some free time in Rouen to seek out the specialties of Normandy, including the famous Rouen ceramics, in the smart shops around the city. Alternatively, you may like to explore the city’s ‘nooks and crannies’ at your own pace, or relax awhile in a typical French pavement café.
