    The train station

    by JLBG Updated Nov 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The railway station itself is worth the visit, even if you don't take the train. It was built in 1928 in "Art Déco" style by the "Compagnie des Chemins de fer de l´État". The architect was Adolphe Dervaux.
    The flows of incoming and outgoing passengers are well separated.
    Travelers that leave Rouen are lead through the front entrance to every facility they need, around the main lobby.
    Travelers that arrive in Rouen, arrive in a smaller lobby, on the side and the two flows are well separated and identified.
    Rouen has very good railway connections with Paris and to many cities in France, either by high-speed train (TGV) or by other kind of trains.

    French Rail

    The easiest way to reach Rouen is by train from Paris. An almost hourly connection exists from St. Lazare directly to Rouen, duration of travel is around 70 to 90 minutes. Online reservations for the French railway can be made at the web address below.

    take a short trainride to another world!

    you can reach anywhere in town from here on foot!

    Getting **to** Rouen, the train is the only way to fly! It's a short ride from Paris and if your time is severely limited, I think you can even see the highlights in a day. But do not cheat yourself, please! Spend a couple of days here and walk the streets and discover the real, oldtown, smalltown FRANCE...

    ROUEN METRO SYSTEM.

    ROUEN METRO SYSTEM.

    'M?trobus' is the coordinated network of two modern tram (light rail) lines and buses. The light rail line runs mostly underground in the city centre, then crosses the river Seine on an existing road bridge and after one more underground station the line runs mainly on the surface with three street underground crossings, but mostly on separate right-of-way.

    It depends how fare you want to go from Rouen. The bus and the subway are very usefull to get around the city. The price of the regular ticket is 8.00 Frcs. Be careful because you can take any buses any time during one hour but after this hour your ticket is not available.

    It's very easy to take the train from Paris. And it's not very expensive (120 Frcs). Rouen is about 1 hour and 30 minutes by train from Paris. Rouen is a small city, it means that the station is in the center of the city. You just have to walk in Jeanne d'arc street to be in the heart of the city.

    The best way is the train from Paris, 1 hour/17 €. The station (Rouen rive-droite) is near the centre, 5 minutes by foot.
    WALK WALK WALK !!! The centre is pedestrian.
