Rouen is surprisingly small and many of the attractions are within a very short walk of each other. Enjoyed my time looking at the clock and being in the street. We also took the trip up the tower and really enjoyed the view over Rouen. Well worth the 8 euro admision

Walk down this street to look at the architecture and let your mind take you back a few centuries. When you get tired of seeing such beautiful old buildings you can easily find a cafe for a coffee and a pastry.

If you are in Rouen its worth finding the clock, its not far from the Cathedral, quite a size makes you feel so small, worth a photograph too.

You must go down this one street in Rouen if none other, as it is beautiful. Lots of old buildings, some great shops (like Auzou chocolate and cake) and the view coming up to the cathedral is priceless.

Topped at the apex by a grand clock. Part of the essential Rouen experience. Great views at night - when it is lit.

It's mandatory to visit the Rue du Gros-Horloge and continue walking until find the Joan of Arc Church.

Great area to browse in. Wonderful old buildings leaning on each other for support. The clock is beautiful. Put this on your list for sure.
