More than one year after our first trip to Normandy and Bretagne in the springtime 2017, we decided to go back to this region for a long summer weekend road trip to its capital Rouen and some beautiful villages in the countryside.

Rouen is a historical city with medieval roots and many architectural highlights among which its gothic and enormous cathedral.

Many other churches and ancient houses have stood the test of time very well and give space to beautiful squares and streets. Make sure you pass by Le Gros Horloge, a one-of-a-kind monument.

The historical zone stretches far and we recommend to go completely north until the old train station Rouen-Rive-Droite in a beautiful art nouveau style.
