Monet's Trail - Rouen

When we think of Normandy, we immediately think of the D-Day landing beaches and the Operation Overlord that took place there. But Normandy has WAY MORE to offer than just WWII memorials. In this tour we are exploring the more inland part of beautiful Normandy and we have taken the French impressionist painter Claude Monet as our inspiration.
