    Rouen Things to Do

    Sailing throughout Normandy on the Uniworld Baroness, the crew urged us to go to the Cathedral and see the Light Show at 10pm. I had visions of cheesy strobe lights and disco balls and choir background music. A group of us made our way to the beautiful lit Cathedral and at 10pm, the lights vanished into complete darkness as the bells chimed. ...

    I guess this is the most well known of Monet's garden. Just like many of us Photographer's, Monet, the Artist, was fascinated by the play of light and reflections of clouds on the water. He liked it so much, that in 1893 he acquired land at the bottom of the Clos Normand and created a Lake which then became his "water garden." He built a Japanese...

    I've been in this restaurant many times, when I'm here I visit this place. And I always have taken Normandy mussels, why? They always have been delicious and maybe because we here in Latvia can't get so fresh seafood. Of course, this restaurant offers more of sea stuff not just mussels. So I suggest when taking mussels also to take a cider. Not to...
