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. TIA.
Does anyone know where we can park up with a motor van in this area? Thank you
I was wondering if the Monet garden in Giverny was worth a visit late September (around the 23rd). Will there still be some flowers ? Jeannette

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? Carl
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. Jim and Janice
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

Can anyone advise the best way to get from Rouen in Normandy area of France by train or bus to Ypres in Belgium ? We are traveling in September this year. Is it really necessary to go back to Paris to get a train north through Lille and then find something that goes to Ypres from Lille? Mel@Dave
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.
We are doing a day trip by train from Paris and want to know what is best way to get from Rouen station to Bois Guillaume cemetery--Taxi or bus? Also can we stop off at Vernon (giverny) on return trip using the same rail ticket -we have accommodation in Paris so won't be staying overnight just visiting
My husband, my 1 1/2 year old daughter and I will be staying in a resort in Connelles. Any suggestions about the best way to get there from the Charles De Gaul Airport? And any tips on what to do there? We will be renting a car. We would like to go to Paris and also visit some nice spots around the area. Are there any vineyards around? Please advice.
I am planning a trip to the UK and would like to visit St. Sever Cemetery in Rouen to see the grave of a relative who died during World War I. Since I am not familiar with any of these areas, what would be the easiest way for me to get there? Also, would I need to saty overnight? Any suggestions for lodging...close to the train station?
Hello: We are planning to make a day trip to Rouen from Paris and wanted to know if Tuesday is a good day. Are most shops open? What about any fun outdoor market places? If Tues. it not good, then what day is? What about Sunday? Are shops open? We will be coming in early March. Thank you.
Hi everyone, we are travelling with grandparents and two small children (1 and 3) to the Normandy region in May. My Dad is very keen on anything on world war related so this is a treat for him. Just researching possible accomodation options. Can anyone recommend any self catering/B&B's which are nice but won't break the budget and suitable for young children. We will have our own transport so there needs to be parking. Also recommendations on attractions in the area that are kid friendly would be much appreciated. I personally would love to walk around museums all day but I am thinking the kids will not!! Any advice would be great. Thanks :-)
Hi all, We are travelling down from Calais to Domfront on 23rd Dec and would like suggestions of possible route/stop offs along the way. We stayed near Amiens in October and preferred to keep off the autoroute as much as possible and pass through smaller towns. I know it will take longer this way but we have all day to get down to Domfront and would like stop every so often for lunch , coffee etc Thanks Alison
Good day to you all I'm planning to spend about 6-7 days travelling around Normandy visiting ALL the main D-Day sites (or as many as i can possibly manage) and i'm wondering several things, which of sure all you good folk will be able to assist me with. Is 6-7 too little, too much or just enough time to see all the main stuff like the beaches, emplacements, relevant towns, museums, monuments, memorials etc? I'm thinking of basing myself in 1-2 different places during my stay (and exploring the regions from there), i think Caen for the first part of it. But i'm not sure where to go for the second part, somewhere around the Sainte Mere-Eglise/Carentan area maybe? Any suggestions? To escape the military history briefly during the trip i'm going to visit Honfleur and Mont San Michel at the start and end of the trip. Do these places deserve an overnight stay or is a stop off for a few hours in each enough? I'm planning to drive from place to place so as regards accomodation, a car parking space is a must. That leads us to whether any of you guys can recommend good budget accomodation in places like Caen, Bayeaux, Carentan, Arromanches etc? I know France is not the cheapest of places but i'd prefer to stay in a good hostel, B&B or guesthouse than in a hotel. Am i being a bit ambitious here? My thanks in advance for all your help Regards to all! DG
I will be staying in Deville les Rouen for a few days in October, and am trying to find out if there is a train to Paris for a day trip. When I try to search, everything comes up as Rouen. Surely Deville must have a train station? If not, how hard is it to get from Deville to Rouen to get the train to Paris? I will not have a car. Thanks!
We have planned to visit Rouen on Wednesday 8th September for the day and have been informed about the railway strike in France. I would like to know if the trains to Rouen are affected by this strike and if so what are the alternative ways to travel to Rouen? Thank you. Babli Sharma
We are terminating a cruise in Le Havre. We would like to go to the WW II normandy sites the day we arrive and then to Mont St. Michelle the next morning. We plan to stay the night somewhere and then take a train to Paris at the end of the second day. Would we be better off to stay in Caen or Bayeux and how would we get there from Le Havre. Thanks, Carol
