Upper Normandy is the perfect place to relax – its location on the English Channel gives access to water and beaches, and the proximity of the Île-de-France region and Paris makes this region a perfect base for the most famous French attractions. In Normandy you will find campsites by the beach and in the vicinity of the most famous historic towns.
The pearls of Upper Normandy are the beautiful cities, headed by the capital of the region – Rouen. The city is distinguished by historic buildings with half-timbered houses, which give the old town a unique cozy atmosphere. In Rouen, you must also see the 14th-century clock installed in the Renaissance arch at Rue de Gros-Horologe and the gothic cathedral that inspired Claude Monet to paint a whole series of paintings depicting this monumental building at different times of the day.
Other noteworthy cities are: located on the river Iton Évreux, which symbol is a beautiful gothic cathedral, and Le Havre – the largest port city in France with a large pebble beach, numerous monuments and restaurants. One of the symbols of Upper Normandy is the more than two-kilometer long Normandy Bridge over the Seine, connecting Honfleur and Le Havre. The bridge itself is an unforgettable attraction.
