Back from D-Day landing areas on Normandy shores, we enjoyed our stopover at Rouen. Within the amazing old city the pedestrian streets are truly nice: well preserved half-timbered houses built during the Middle Ages are seen around the central market square and cathedral areas. St Romain street is beautiful. Shops, French and international brands restaurants are available.

This is such a beautiful and oooold part of town. Centuries old buildings that were made from scrap ship timbers are still standing, though crooked, leaning and uneven. The city strictly governs this old buildings as historical monuments. I believe this is what brings the charm to the area. I stayed in a B&B in one of these 700 year-old... More

Really gorgeous to see at night. We walked it after a delicious dinner at Les Marchers (highly recommend).

It's a street with lots of nice buildings, most of which lean into the centre of the alley. Make it part of your walking tour and take in the shops, bars etc.

Rue Eau de robec, Place du Vieux-Marche, Rue Saint-Romain, Place de l'Aitre de St. Maclou are all beautiful little streets in Rouen one should wander. There are ample places to sit and enjoy a meal, drink some cafe and enjoy a crepe.

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. Plan on spending about 45 minutes from one end to the other... More

The 90 cm Rue des Chanoines splinters off this street and connects with Rue St. Nicholas. There is also a great patisserie called Dame Cakes on this street. As with many of the streets in Rouen, it is chocked with Medieval character
