Rouen – Caudebec-En-Caux
Explore medieval Rouen on a walking tour of this picturesque and ancient French town with its imposing Notre Dame Cathedral, Medieval Quarter and Great Clock. There is also a different tour to visit Lyons-la-Forêt, built on the site of a former fortress, followed by the Château de Vascoeuil with its octagonal tower, art exhibitions and sculpture park. A third option is the “Tastes of Normandy” tour, where guests can try the local fare for which this region is famous, including chocolate, cider and cheese. Later on, relax on a scenic cruise or choose pedal power and take a bike ride from Rouen to Caudebec-en-Caux. A third alternative is a visit to another local castle, the Château d’Etelan – the first Italian Renaissance Château built in France in 1494. This has a historic chapel with original wall paintings and a guard house dating back to 1350, all set in truly picturesque surroundings.
