Walk in Pont-Audemer

A visit to discover the city of Pont-Audemer in Normandy.

An easy and short walk to visit the city of Pont-Audemer, which is nicknamed the "Venice of Normandy". This is due to the fact that the river Risle has several branches connected by small canals that cross the city. The city is not very large and is easily visited.
