Normandy is renowned for its architectural, natural and living heritage. Rouen and the Seine valley are positioned as a complete tourist destination where a French way of life is present in gastronomy, the artistic movement that is Impressionism, and especially in its crafts, antiques dealers, art galleries and famous authors.
A French way of life
More than Rouen Cathedral, the Gros-Horloge clock or the stake in Place du Vieux Marché, the city of Rouen is also a place where art and sophistication are on the menu. Let yourself be surprised by the famous antique dealers’ neighbourhood or the Rouen flea markets, the many art galleries in the centre of town or the charming village of La Bouille or perhaps the childhood homes and museums dedicated to the influential authors of the region such as Gustave Flaubert, Hector Malot and Pierre Corneille.
If you love the French way of life, with its history, its culture and the authenticity that characterises it, Rouen and the Seine valley are the ideal destination for spending a romantic weekend, family holidays or a trip with friends.
