The clock face is very beautiful and well worth seeing. You can take the 30 mins to climb the winding staircase to get a city view. It was a very cold day so we didn't go up.

It saddens me that I went with a group who tried to squeeze a trip to this city into half a day. While a neighbour of Paris, a few hours doesn't do this pretty city justice, as it carries an entirely different ambiance and history.

This is a wonderful quiet street down which to walk. It is lined with interesting shops of all kinds. Even though it often is full of tourists, it does not seem as ticky-tacky and touristy as one might expect. After searching fruitlessly in Paris for...More

This place is a masterpiece. Very badly attended today by so many refugees and merchants of poor quality products. It is a pity to see how deteriorated the place became. Dirty of any kind.

We wandered round the old town, to one side of our hotel and then the other down Rue du Gros Horloge. It's interesting, and the clock is spectacular, but it felt a little less safe than other parts of the historic centre.

The whole ancient Rouen core is worth a visit. The cathedral, of course, and the charm of the old houses. The clock is interesting. But this whole place deserves a visit, especially under the night lights.

You must walk along this very old and quaint street and look at the old clock. Lovely! great to see and in working shape.

This is like the "face" of Rouen. It's a big clock with beautiful colors and sculptures in the walls. You cans go in it and go upstairs and see all the city from the highest part of the building.

It’s pretty, take a picture, look underneath it, move on. (There is a nice bar for beer attached to the side of the tower. )

I live here and always enjoy waking down this street, especially in December when it is decorated for the holidays! Lots to see and buy!
