We went to Rouen for a fantastic exhibit at the Rouen museum - the Inpressionists in Rouen. It was almost too much, so many many paintings by famous Impressionists of Rouen. Most importantly, we saw 4 or 5 of the paintings Monet did of Rouen Cathedral. It was very good to see them together, a few blocks from the real cathedral. The Impressionists liked Normandy for the light (and because it was close to Paris and cheap).
