La Rochelle

Millennial city dynamic, welcoming and festive, La Rochelle cultivates a unique sweetness of life, a lifestyle firmly anchored to the ocean. With its four ports, La Rochelle is the Atlantic city par excellence.

As you walk along the Old Port, discover the history of the three famous towers marking its entrance, the towers of Saint Nicholas, the Chain and the Lantern. They are the vestige of the old rampart of the medieval city. Strolling on the Old Port enjoying an ice cream or enjoying the sunny terraces sets the tone for your vacation. Then, entering the city center by the Porte de la Grosse Horloge, admire the streets with arcades, a place conducive to walking and shopping.

La Rochelle is also discovering major events such as the Francofolies, the Grand Pavois, the International Film Festival, and many more. Enjoy your visit to 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.
