"The city with a hundred steeples ringing out in the air..", this is how Victor Hugo described Rouen. A muse of great writers and artists, it has preserved its historical districts, which are entirely pedestrianised, intact and it's only by strolling and getting lost in the streets, that it is possible to get to know this city.
The most popular shopping street of Rouen, the Rue du Gros Horloge, will allow you to combine the joys of shopping with the beauty of the old town. For those who wish to combine walking with history, city visits will allow you to climb the slopes which tower above Rouen, to stroll along the Seine or to go back in time on the Route des Moulins. During the weekends, Rouen offers you a vast choice of trendy discos and pubs. If, however, you are looking for more excitement, Paris is within arm's reach. Literature, history, art...effectively, learning French in Rouen is really worth it!
