If you are passing through Rouen and would like to book a tour, don’t hesitate to write me a message and I will get back to you.
Rouen existed in 51 BC, survived the famines, massacres and Black Death of the Middle Ages, was home to the imprisonment of Joan of Arc and witness to her death by burning at the stake in the Vieux Marché. Monet and the Impressionsts made the city their temporary home and produced many of their great works along the banks of the river Seine. The German forces occupied the city during the Second World War and it was liberated by the allies in 1944. All the history unfolds around the many monuments and timber framed buildings lining the streets. There are plenty of ‘horrible histories’ for young and old, and beautiful buildings and art for the more aesthetically inclined!
Two hour tours for 3 to 33 covering all the main sites or specialised themes.
