I am going to study in Rouen for a semester and we are each supposed to do a research on any aspect of Rouen. I want to do music/ or dance or a combination of both. Do you know how fertile Rouen is for such a research? If it is what type of music or dance can I narrow this to? Is is just contemporary, are there people basking on the street etc.
Thanks a lot!
We are spending a two-week holiday in Dieppe and are looking for a child-friendly restaurant in the environs of Dieppe, so we can combine it with a afternoon walk (there are two kids with us, 2 and 0.5 year-old).
Has anyone spent any time in Dieppe over Christmas? I am wondering if the town will be open enough to enjoy Christmas day there.. and a day or so either side.

I will be on a cruise in September stopping at Le Havre. We want to go to Rouen for the day. The train works in the morning to get us into Rouen, but the return train trips on the schedule are either too early or too late. Is there a mid afternoon train or bus from Rouen to le Havre around 3:00P.M. (15:00) ? Would a taxi be an option for us? How much would that cost ? Are there Private car services that would make the trip? Any contact information regarding this would be appreciated. Thanks janeharriet
What pier does Viking use in Ruan?
We are going to be in Amiens in the beginning of Jun and we'd like to visit Rouen to see cathedral light show. Could somebody tell me at what time it will start and how long will it go. And where we'll be able to park a car at Saturday night?
I need to travel from Rouen in the early hours to Dieppe ferry terminal. What's the best and cheapest option available?
I've been trying to find a map or a guidebook for Rouen and I can't find any. I have only few hours to spare when I visit Rouen and given this limitation I think I can only see the Cathedral and perhaps where where Joan of Arc was burned. My question is how far is the train station to Cathedral (I am coming from Paris), is it walkable or do I have to take a taxi.
Does anyone know where we can park up with a motor van in this area?
I was wondering if the Monet garden in Giverny was worth a visit late September (around the 23rd). Will there still be some flowers ?
I'm going to go next Weekend in Normandie for a little tour of 4 days.I will arrive in Paris by plane and then I'll rent a Car for all the period,my first city will be Rouan.My only MUST is Mont-saint-Michel,but I don't know where to go and what trip make,can someone help me..?
We will be staying in Le Havre on a Sunday night in early September at the end of a cruise, and need to select a nice hotel. Because we will not be able to rent a car until the following morning, we need to be in Le Havre rather than one of the outlying towns. I'd like a recommendation. The twobest-looking places online appear to be the Pasino and the Mercure at the Basin. Which is the nicer of the two? Are there others directly in Le Havre that would be better?
I am looking for a car rental agency in Le Havre where I can rent a car on a Sunday, and return it to Paris the following Thursday. I do not have the option to change either the day or the week or the necessity of returning the car to Paris, so please don't suggest making changes.
So far, I can't find any agency open on a Sunday. We arrive early Sunday morning from a cruise and have obligations that require us to drive elsewhere that morning.
All practical solutions are welcome.
In a novel set pre World War One an English couple travel to Dieppe, go to the Cafe des Tribunaux, and stay in a hotel described as ornate. In hotel guides I can't find a Dieppe-area hotel fitting the description. Has an older (nineteenth century or very early twentieth century) hotel survived? I'd love to visit it.
Does any company run Normandy D day beach tours from Rouen?
We will be spending two weeks in Verneuil-sur-Arve with no car.
We will be using the train for sightseeing.
Is there bus service that will take us to other villages or towns?
Is there "for hire" service like a van?
Thanks for your help.

In mid March 2012 my husband and I wil lbe visiting in Normandy. We are staying in Les Connelles. However, I need travel tips for getting there as well as picking up a car/driving etc. Anything you can tell me. We plan on traveling from Paris-to Les Connelles with visiting Rouen, Les Andelys and of course the Chateau Gaillaird. Our main trip away from area is to St Mere Eglise where we will be spending two days at the Normandy Beaches and studying WWII history. I have never driven in a foreign country let alone France - where would be best to pick up a car etc.? Any airline suggestions? Any advice at all would be helpful. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH

Hello, 3 mature ladies (good walkers) interested in WW1/2 sites have 3-4 nights to visit these areas. Thought we could stay in Bayeux - will check out websites for accomodation suggested on other replies. Problem is we have no transport - happy to hire bikes - my question is how accessible will it be to visit these sites. Very flexible so any suggestions will be gratefully accepted - don't have to stay in Bayeux. Wow fabulous info on this site!!! thank you thank you.
