I walked up from the city along the recommended tourist route. The access up the hill is poorly signposted and doesn't look like it has been maintained for a long time. There was rubbish strewn at the look-out which was just a bare hard stand...More

Côte Ste Catherine offers a wonderful panorama over the city of Rouen. We followed a group of students who advised us to spend an hour walking uphill. It is recommended to do it around 10am to benefit from the morning sunlight. We had a nice...More

A short walk out of the centre of Rouen and a short - but not unstrenuous - walk up the hillside brings you to the Panorama (the less energetic may drive). We were rewarded with superb views and photo-opportunities of the city of Rouen. Well...More

Beautiful sight. Definitely worth the detour for photographs. A word of warning: pretty difficult to access by foot. I got lost in the hillside streets on my way up. Bring a map. Also, the top of the hill is definitely not pedestrian-friendly.

The walk to the 'foot' of the hill is only about 15 minutes from the Notre Dame Cathedral and if you're looking to kill a couple of hours there are few better ways to do so! If anyone is interested, walk past the Saint-Maclou church...More

We had lovely weather today so made the walk to the top to get an over view. I like this as it brings all the sites visited into focus while getting to burn some calories.

I can't understand why more people don't walk about this, the view is absolutely stunning! You can sit and enjoy the view that Monet painted over 100 years ago. I would strongly recommend every visitor to rouen to do this walk if they have time,...More

My friend and I decided to walk up the trail to the top of the hill. It is a fairly strenuous walk but the view is incredible. Everyone who goes to Rouen should do this.
