From the port of Le Havre, we will travel to Rouen for a walking tour of significant monuments in this famous city, the traditional capital city of Normandy. Rouen is famous for its historical associations with Joan of Arc and Claude Monet. It is renowned for its Gothic churches, and its medieval and Renaissance neighborhoods. This tour will introduce major themes for the course and highlight architectural, sculptural, historical, commercial and commemorative monuments of the type to be encountered in all subsequent ports and countries to be visited.
