Divided by the Seine, Rouen is split into two sides: a left side and particularly its Saint Sever neighbourhood, and a right side and its historic centre. There are six road bridges that enable you to cross the capital of Normandy from one bank to the other while admiring the Seine: Joan of Arc bridge, Boieldieu bridge, William the Conqueror bridge, Mathilde bridge, Pierre Corneille bridge and the Gustave Flaubert vertical lift bridge.
The banks of the Seine in Rouen
The quays on the right bank and its many restaurants, bars, sports halls and other shops are very popular with the people of Rouen. The layout of the quays on the left bank with the planting of many green spaces such as the Saint-Sever meadow (or the Rollet peninsula offers a very pleasant setting for sunbathing with your partner, a picnic with your family or rollerblading and bike riding.
The layout of the quays strengthens the desire of the various world-famous cruise companies who offer river cruises on the Seine from Paris to Honfleur, enabling people to discover Rouen from the Seine.
