Rouen : Michelin's recommendations
Rouen is the capital of Haute-Normandie and owes everything to its advantageous location on the road from Paris to the sea. Bursting with history, it has an abundance of atmosphere. A remarkable restoration programme has revitalised its narrow winding streets, bordered by beautiful wood-fronted houses. Several excellent museums, one of France’s greatest Gothic cathedrals, and an attractive valley setting complete the picture, making Rouen a veritable treasure beyond compare.
