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.
