This Street takes you back in time to medieval days. Cobblestone street with half Timbered houses and quaint little shops. We enjoyed walking here.

This is a lovely street to meander along and soak up the culture. Quaint restaurants and shops. Wear comfortable shoes that work with cobblestone streets.

Probably the most famous street in Rouen, there are little shops and cafes plus the Hotel de la Cathedrale. Famous for the faience shops

This is a wonderful place to stroll and enjoy all of the various forms of architecture, from fairly modern to that which has withstood the test of time and war. It is also a prime shopping venue.
