Rouen, the city of a hundred bell towers

Rouen is famous for its history (medieval city), beautiful landscapes, its fine regional cook and of course the friendly welcome offered by the people. This North-West French city is in the capital of Normandy and the Seine-Maritime department. The city, also known as the ‘Ville aux cent clochers’ dear to Victor Hugo, has preserved much of its historical centre which is now largely composed of pedestrian streets. As you walk through the historical centre, past half timbered houses, discover architectural treasures for example Gothic monuments like the Notre Dame Cathedral, St Ouen Abbey, Saint Maclou Church and the Palais de Justice or Renaissance style monuments like the Gros Horloge, Saint Maclou Ossuary. Or you can also follow in the steps of Richard the Lionheart, Joan of Arc, Pierre Corneille or Gustave Flaubert, some of the many characters who have been part of Rouen’s history.
After your day treasure hunting, come and enjoy cultural events and performances throughout the summer period, for example the ‘From Monet to Pixels’ light show on the façade of the Cathedral which transforms the impressive gothic monument into a huge painting canvas with images inspired by Claude Monet’s paintings. An amazing and impressive show! Finally after a busy day in Rouen, you can enjoy a well-earned rest savoring the cuisine in some local restaurants. Enjoy our French school in Rouen!

I am in France studying French.  I would like to do university in France in the future, maybe at the Sorbonne. I would like to have 2 majors: French and History. The food has much less sugar than in the US, and it tastes more natural. I visited the Château d’Amboise, the Clos Lucé et the Chateau Gaillard. I’m fond of Castles. In Paris I hope to visit Place de la Concorde, Château de Vincennes, Château de Fontainebleau and Château de Versailles. It is my passion. I love France and I hope to live here one day. I really want to learn how to speak French properly, this is why I’m here!
