#15 of 95 in Things to do in Rouen
Named for the seventh-century archbishop of the city, Rue Saint-Romain runs near the city's cathedrals. The street is so picturesque that it's been captured the eye of many famous painters over the years, including Camille Pissarro , Eugène Boudin, and Charles Pinet. This street is alluring because it has changed so little since the Middle Ages. From the half-timber houses to the cobblestone-covered street still grooved from carriage wheels, you can feel the history here with each step. Our Rouen online itinerary planner makes visiting Rue Saint-Romain and other Rouen attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We did a complete walking tour of the city and this street was right in the middle with some important historic buildings and a lot of restoration. Make it a part of your day in town.  more »
  • The street is very narrow most of the buildings are now top end shops and eateries. Going out of the cathedral it is to the right and runs parallel with the Cathedral right down to St Maclou church.  more »
