A must-see visit of a city resolutely turned towards the sea.
With its four ports, La Rochelle is the Atlantic city par excellence. While walking on the Old Port, discover the history of the three famous towers that mark its entrance, the towers of Saint-Nicolas, the Chain and the Lantern. They are the remains of the old medieval city wall.
Strolling along the Old Port with an ice cream or enjoying the sunny terraces sets the tone for your vacation.
Then, as you enter the city center through the Porte de la Grosse Horloge, admire the streets with their arcades, a great place to stroll and shop.
La Rochelle is also the place to be for major events such as the Francofolies, the Grand Pavois, the International Film Festival, and many others.
Take advantage of your stay in La Rochelle to visit the Aquarium, one of the largest in Europe, home to 12,000 marine animals living in 3 million liters of water. A visit that will delight young and old.
