  • In fact I don't know whether to talk to a museum because with a single admission ticket I was able to visit different things. (1) the Museum or there are pictures, videos, collectibles on the port of the new rochelle. I liked the flirt of sand. (2) I can also visit France a weather ship, including the engine room.

(5) I also visited the showroom. In conclusion, really pleased with this visit I recommend

Where to stay in La Rochelle

To discover La Rochelle's rich architectural heritage, book your rooms at a stylish hotel near the city's picturesque old harbor. From there, you can easily explore the city's oldest areas, while remaining within easy walking distance of modern tourist attractions, such as the aquarium and natural history museum. If you're travelling on a limited budget, consider staying farther away from the old harbor, where you can choose from a selection of small inns, private B&Bs, and good-value hostels.
