Rouen is situated on the River Seine, about 90 minutes from Paris.
Popular historic sites such as Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen and Place de l'Aitre de St. Maclou are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Falaises d'Etretat and Fishing Charters & Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rouen: Eglise Saint-Etienne (in Fecamp), Fondation Claude Monet (in Giverny) and Cathedrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens (in Amiens). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Musee des Beaux-Arts de Rouen, delve into the lush surroundings at Le Bois des Aigles, wander the streets of Rue du Gros-Horloge, and look for all kinds of wild species at Caresse de Tigre.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Rouen fast, fun, and easy.

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.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Sun): take in the spiritual surroundings of Abbaye aux Dames, brush up on your military savvy at Memorial de Caen, then explore the different monuments and memorials at Bayeux War Cemetery, then take in the history at Omaha Beach, and finally stroll the grounds of Normandy American Cemetery. On the 30th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: steep yourself in history at Pointe du Hoc, take an in-depth tour of Musee de la Tapisserie de Bayeux, then identify plant and animal life at La Roche d'Oetre, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Abbaye aux Hommes.
