La Rochelle
The Essential
Highly recommended
The call of the sea remains strong in this famous port that has seen so many travellers and explorers set sail. A prominent nautical port, La Rochelle remains true to its seafaring origins and has extended its marina. On land, the bicycle rules and the town pioneered the promotion of 2-wheels as a means of transport. The fortified historic port, streets lined in arcades, churches, museums, noble mansions, but also the famous Francofolies music festival are just a few of the appeals of La Rochelle!
