Question re Amiens, Rouen, and Chartres—which one as a 3 night trip with the others as day trips fro

by Curious123

We plan to visit cathedral towns in April and are trying to decide which one to spend 3 nights in and which to do as day trips from Paris. We would like a town with a lovely medieval pedestrian area to wander around in for our lengthier visit, with our day trips primarily focused on the cathedrals themselves. My current thought is perhaps to do Rouen as the longer visit, with Chartres and Amiens as daytrips from Paris, but I’d appreciate any suggestions. Thank you. Carol

Re: Question re Amiens, Rouen, and Chartres—which one as a 3 night trip with the others as day trips


You are completely right. Though Amiens has also a lot to offer, there is much more to do and visit in Rouen. I do not know very well Chartres but I do not feel thare is much to see besides the wonderful cathedral. You will be very happy with three days in Rouen. I was there two years ago and enjoyed it a lot!

Re: Question re Amiens, Rouen, and Chartres—which one as a 3 night trip with the others as day trips


I would also recommend Rouen. JLBG is right, Chartres has a wonderful cathedral but Rouen fits your requirements very well.
I have not been to Amiens yet.
The distance to Amiens from either Paris or Rouen is about the same.

Hi Carol,
I think that Rouen is the best choise: Nice cathedral, many interesting things to do, also easy to visit for pedestrians,..
Any intersting things: places about Joan of Arc, cathedrale, medieval houses, aitre Saint Maclou. Interseting is also that you can go from there to the impressive Mont Saint Michel.
Amiens is interesting also: Cathedral, hortillonages, nice coloured old house, beautiful country side, ... but I find Rouen better.
About Chartres didn't know anithing.
Enjoy it and take care,

Not discrediting Chartres though. It does have one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the country. Would be a good day trip if you are really into the cathedrals!

Dear all,

Thanks to all theses thoughts. They are very helpful and we definitely plan to visit Chartres in a day trip to see the cathedral and have been once before, but Rouen sounds lovely and this makes me all the more enthusiastic about visiting. I think a day trip to Amiens would also be excellent. Thanks again for these thoughts and any others about things to see in these locations.


Travel Tips for Rouen

Eglise St Maclou, presentation of Jesus


On the central portal of the Église Saint Maclou, the left medallion represents a scene of the life of Jesus. It seems to be the Presentation in the Temple, which is related in the New Testament. Mary and Joseph bring the child Jesus to the Temple in Jerusalem to dedicate him to God where Simeon receives him for circumcision.

Le Gros Horloge from the Cathedral


Walking away from the main entrance in the Cathedral, you will find yourself in front of what the locals call "LE Gros Horloge" (male). Note that in French, that should be "LA Grosse Horloge" (female). But in Rouen, may be due to pollution by pesticides, the clock has been subjected to a change of gender !

19th century ?


From what I have shown on other tips, it might seem that in Rouen, there are either very old remains of the past or very modern buildings. Actually, in some streets that are never visited by tourists, there are buildings of other periods, such as this one that must have been built at the end of the19th or the beginning of the 20th century. But in Rouen (not only in Rouen !), that kind of building does not interest anybody ! May be in 50 years, when most of these buildings will have been destroyed, we will miss them. Perhaps !

Water along the road: Rue Eau de Robec

by Pavlik_NL

This wonderful street is like a oasis inside the citycenter of Rouen, yet not often visited by the touristic masses that roam around the cathedral and the Vieux Marche. Rue Eau de Robec means "Water of the Robec - street" and this becomes clear when you walk through this street and see that along the road, water runs through a small canal. Only recently the water of this creek came back to the surface, as for long time the water was pressed into the sewer system of Rouen. The water, the beautiful woodwork houses plus the many flowers and greens in this street, make the "Rue Eau de Robec" a pleasurous place to walk through. There's even a small place with "Petanque"-lanes, where the citizens of town play this typical French game.

MMMHHHH, a very good restaurant. You can eat traditionnal food and it is not very expensive.
It is an old restaurant and we can see that by the atmosphear with a piano and sometimes there is some evening with jazz. All of them. I like the French food.
