“A picturesque urban street”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

The Rue Saint-Romain is a narrow pedestrian street leading eastwards from the northern side of the Notre Dame Cathedral Square. Its main feature is the variety of coloured half-timbered Gothic and Renaissance buildings, mostly sitting above shops and boutiques.

The old buildings date variously from between the 15C and the 18C and, in my opinion, are worth a short visit due to the picturesque architecture and photo opportunities.

“Interesting to walk down this street”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

It's interesting to walk down this street. On an old wall near the cathedral there is a plaque that says something about the inquiry ordered by Charles VII into Joan of Arc's trial several years earlier. I like the courtyard outside of the cathedral--it has a statue of St. Romain.

“I live here!”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

It's convenient to everything but a little noisy :) Since everyone passes by here to get between the two cathedrals, I hear all languages throughout the day as the tour guides pass by.
