Day 3 of 3: Rouen
On our third and last day we first drove to the cathedral city of Rouen, where we had several hours to look around. We were blessed with yet another sunny day. From there we returned home via the Eurotunnel.
Rouen — Rouen is the historic capital city of Normandy. The Notre Dame Cathedral was well worth a visit. Unfortunately, the neighbouring gothic St Ouen Church was closed for renovation. The old town is noted for its half-timbered houses.
