When is the best time to fly to Rouen?
Summertime is the perfect season to book flights to Rouen: the warm, sunny days, and the occasional shower strike a perfect balance for tourists looking to enjoy every bit of the outdoors.
If you find yourself visiting Rouen in the summertime, you’re able to experience all that the outdoor offers, because with perfect sunny weather and very little rainfall, there’s no limit on what you can do. While it may be a bit crowded during the popular rush it’s certainly worth the chaos.
Fewer people head to France in the wintertime, because when the cold sets in, it goes hand-in-hand with frigid rainfall. While it’s certainly not the prettiest time of year here, you’ll be able to find better deals on accommodation and cheap flights to Rouen when you travel in the off-season.
Rouen –the capital of Normandy and the largest port in France lies just 79 miles (128km) northwest of Paris.
This city can be seen as a three-in-one deal - its mix of vibrant industries and a bustling student population brings a diversity and energy to the ground that makes Rouen a one-of-a-kind experience offering an inventive atmosphere that helped famed writers like Pierre Corneille (Le Cid) and Gustave Flaubert (Madame Bovary) write their striking masterpieces. As you walk these cobblestone streets it’s impossible not to wonder about the passionate hearts of people who once walked the very same roads.
It is here that Claude Monet spent morning, afternoon and evening painting and repainting the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedrale, and here also that the young and tireless Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in the city’s centre. The restored medieval centre is home to other historical gems like Gothic cathedrals and architecture straight from the middle ages. When arrive in Rouen, you’ll realise that the city’s history, passion and fire are inescapable.
