1. what could the lads do in the evening
2. what are resturants or eating places like
3. what is the weather going to be like this time of year

any information you have would be a great help to me and the club members who
will be going on the eventful trip.

Hi there,
Rouen is an old, very charming French city, famous for the fact that Jeanne d'Arc was burned at the stake there. It's a story well-known and quite appealing so it might be nice to do a little walk around town and visit the site where it happened (right in middle of town on Place Vieux Marche).

On Place Vieux Marche there are also plenty of (large) restaurants) and on good days you will be able to sit outside on the square.
Maître Kanter, a nice family restaurant used to be there but I can't find it now. Maybe it closed down.
In all cases, it would be wise to make reservations.
French restaurants are quite child friendly but you should also know that French children are brought up to be quiet and well-behaved and are taken to restaurants at a very early age.

May is usually a good month, weather wise. But you will always need a light coat and sweater. It could be anything between say 14 - 25 degrees Celsius.

I'm not sure how to answer more specifically. Hope you will add some information on your new VT page so that we know where you are from.
Good luck and have fun!

Travel Tips for Rouen

by Carmanah

visit the church known as the 'Place du Vieux-Marche'. The shape of this traingular church is supposed to mimic the form of Joan of Arc's hat that she wore. The beautiful stained glass (as you see in the picture) is definitely something to look out for while visiting.

Le Gros Horloge, the Good Shephard


The underneath of the vault of the Gros Horloge is entirely carved. On top, a large medallion shows the Good Shepherd and his sheep, which refers to the coat of arms of Rouen that bears Saint John the Baptist with its lamb.

The Old Town Must Be Kept!

by hquittner

In order to preserve the character of an "old town" in a tourist-ridden city, rigorous architectural zoning and building regulations must be strongly in place. The (invisible) insides of " historic sites" may be modified but the exteriors and heights must conform to "historic preservation" principles (no "Golden Arches" of McDonald's can be in evidence). This is as true for Rouen as it is for the "French Quarter" of my hometown, New Orleans. Here is a picture of a half-timbered house being redone just off the main street. Obviously, nobody would sacrifice the sturdy oak beams inside the building; note that the simply carved vertical timber beam out front is kept and reinforced. Eventually the half-timbering and plaster will be restored and added.

by OrlandoBR

St. Maclou's Aître - this square is hidden behind a dark passage, so despite being an important site, it is a little off track. But a very cool must-see, being an old 15th-Century cemetery for victims of the plague, with its walls carved with funny skulls and gravedigging tools.

The cathedral " Notre Dame"

by MartinaH

The Cathedral "Notre Dame" is situated in the city center and was built in gothic art. After being burned in the 12th century, they rebuilt it in the 13th century.

Inside of the cathedral are tombs of different dukes of Normandy and famous people like Richard the Lionhearted - I'm sure you've already heard of him, right ?? ;-)
