Strolling through the city with its 3,000 shops and 3 shopping centres remains one of our citizens’ favourite pastimes.
Hungry? Treat your taste-buds in any of the 200-plus restaurants, serving menus from ethnic dishes to Michelin-star fine food. And if the day is not enough, Rouen is a great place for partying all night long.
Cultural events of all kinds are also held in a dozen theatres, sixty cinemas or the Opera. The finer arts are not to be forgotten, thanks to the wide range of museums, from the Réunion des Musées Métropolitains, the Circus Theater of Elbeuf, to the Joan of Arc Historial or the XXL Panorama, linking history and innovation.
The Spring Arts Festival, the French Cup, the motorboat 24H race, free concerts in the summer, major international events such as the Normandy Impressionists exhibition, the Armada of Tall Ships, or sports events at the Kindarena – are all there to surprise and entertain you.
