Understand

The lower valley of the River Seine runs through this region, which combines the administrative départments of Eure and Seine-Maritime.

Get in

By car

The A13 motorway by and large follows the Seine Valley from Paris to the suburbs Rouen, then turns west/south-westward towards Caen in Lower Normandy, with a branch crossing the Seine river to Le Havre.

Driving is the only way to reach many of the more rural attractions.

By train

Take the train from Paris gare Saint-Lazare to Rouen, Le Havre and Dieppe, or to Évreux continuing towards Caen.

By bus

The region and the departements of Eure (south) and Seine-Maritime (north) operate several bus lines.
