Small Group Day Trip to Rouen from Paris
Reviewed 30 October 2011

We didn't have a lot of time here as it was due to close in 45 mins, but we did see all of it at a brisk pace. The guide on the desk spoke excellent English and was very informative, he told us about the remains of another part of the original castle in the next street where the offices had been built around it. It's all worth a look.

My husband and I visited the Tour Jeanne d'Arc in Rouen as part of our honeymoon in June 2011. We took the SNCF train from Paris, and I believe the trip was just over an hour. The tower, just south of the train station, was easily accessible by foot. We paid a nominal fee to enter the self-guided tour through the tower which was set up like a museum in the first couple of floors.

Jeanne d'Arc has always been a role model for me, and it was so emotional for me to be in the same tower that Joan was kept in for the last few months of her life. I walked the same winding stone staircase that she did, and was able to see the wooden struts of the top of the tower that she likely gazed at.

The museum offered so much information in both English and French; miniture model of Rouen showing camps of troops, statues of Joan, many maps, portraits, a copy of the manuscript of Joan's trial . . . .so much more. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

It may not seem like much, but the fact that you are able to stand in the spot where a young Saint spent her final days before being burned at the stake is pretty unbeleiveable.

Enjoy the pics

If you don't have time to go here, you're not missing much. Climbing the steps to the top isn't as rewarding as one might think - you can't see anything from the top floor. As for the rest, there is a window in each of the other two floors from which you can sort of see Rouen.
There is also a model of what Rouen might have looked like in the time of Jeanne d'Arc.
