Rouen is situated on the River Seine, about 90 minutes from Paris.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen and Rue du Gros-Horloge. Visiting Falaises d'Etretat and Le Bois des Aigles will get you outdoors. Explore Rouen's surroundings by going to Fishing Charters & Tours (in Dieppe), Cathedrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens (in Amiens) and Eglise Saint-Etienne (in Fecamp). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at Musee des Beaux-Arts de Rouen, identify plant and animal life at Caresse de Tigre, contemplate the long history of Place de l'Aitre de St. Maclou, and take in nature's colorful creations at Fondation Claude Monet.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Rouen trip planner.

Caen ©
Caen is known for its historical buildings built during the reign of William the Conqueror, who was buried there, and for the Battle for Caen--heavy fighting that took place in and around Caen during the Battle of Normandy in 1944, destroying much of the city.
On the 29th (Sun), take in the spiritual surroundings of Abbaye aux Dames, learn about all things military at Memorial de Caen, stroll the grounds of Bayeux War Cemetery, thenwitness the site of a historic battle at Omaha Beach, and finally stroll the grounds of Normandy American Cemetery. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: contemplate the long history of Pointe du Hoc, thensee the interesting displays at Musee de la Tapisserie de Bayeux, thenlook for all kinds of wild species at La Roche d'Oetre, and finally don't miss a visit to Abbaye aux Hommes.

Plan my trip to Caen with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Drive from Rouen to Caen in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a train. Expect a daytime high around °C in December, and nighttime lows around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
