Are you looking for a mix of heritage and art in Normandy? If the answer is yes, we are inviting you to this amazing Normandy private tour to Rouen and the Giverny gardens

After being picked up in Bayeux, your Normandy private tour will begin with a 2-hour journey to Rouen, a port city located north of Bayeux, on the Seine river. It is the historic capital of Normandy and has kept an important religious heritage from the Middle Ages. There are so many churches in Rouen that its nickname is “the city with a hundred spires”!

Your tour will take you to the famous breathtaking Rouen cathedral first. Built in Gothic style, it is the biggest religious monument in the city and, in our opinion, it is also the most beautiful. The Rouen cathedral is the second tallest in the second tallest in the world after the Cologne cathedral, in Germany. Inside, admire the stained-glass windows which date back from the 12th century. You will also discover the graves of several Dukes of Normandy, including the well-known Richard the Lionheart, who became Richard I of England in 1189.

During this Normandy tour from Bayeux, you will also have a chance to explore the old Rouen, with its well preserved medieval houses and cobbled streets

If you are hungry, your guide will point out the best places in Rouen to have some lunch or a quick snack.

After that, your private tour of Normandy will take you to Giverny, about an hour away from Rouen. Claude Monet, the founder of the Impressionist movement, had a house and lived in Giverny for 43 years. Many of his paintings depict the scenery of his garden and the surrounding area of Giverny and Vernon. Enjoy some time for a tour of the painter’s house.
