Explore highlights of Upper Normandy
We visit highlights of Upper Normandy: Etretat, Rouen and enjoy calvados (appel brandy) tasting.
Etretat has always enjoyed a great reputation because of the originality of its settings. The shingle beach, skirted by a sea wall promenade, lies between the cliffs. It's normal that town has inspired many writers and artists: Maupassant, Dumas, Flaubert, Monet.
Rouen is is a capital of Upper Normandy. It was founded by the Romans. Rollo, the first duke of Normandy, was baptized at Rouen. It was hit during the Hundred Years War. On 30 May Joan of Arc was burned alive in place du Vieux-Marche. In 19th century, Claude Monet painted over 30 views of the Rouen cathedral.
We will stop in one of the farms and enjoy cider and calvados.
Usually, we start Honfleur in but this tour can be available from Bayeux, Caen, Deauville or Trouville.
