L'Hermione

Recommended
After work lasting 17 years (started in 1997) and its grand inaugural voyage in the summer of 2015, L'Hermione now spends much of the year docked in Rochefort where it's open to the public. A replica of Lafayette's famous "12-pounder frigate", the ship also boasts a few modern features and makes for a fascinating visit, largely thanks to the commentaries provided by the ship's crew.
