Rouen, situated on the banks of the River Seine, is Normandy’s vibrant, historic and cultural capital. Monet’s famous depictions of Rouen Cathedral have made this vast edifice many visitors’ favourite building in the city, but there are also many fine museums to explore, not to mention the Gros Horloge clock tower, France’s oldest inn La Couronne and the beautiful modern church dedicated to Joan of Arc.
Our short break to Rouen is based at the Holiday Inn Express – Rouen Central on a Bed and Breakfast basis.
As well as providing ample free time to explore all that Rouen has to offer, our trip also includes at trip to Monet’s Garden at Giverny. This is probably the most famous garden in France. Monet painted some of his most famous paintings whilst living at Giverny. These included his water lily and Japanese bridge paintings. Monet lived in Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926.
The garden itself is in two parts with a flower garden in front of the house and the more famous water gardens were started ten years after Monet’s arrival at Giverny and constructed on land bought on the other side of the road from his house.
