    Both toys and technology! Speaking of automata and La Rochelle the visit to its Museum allows you to see the evolution of the techniques used cars, characters, ships and trains are all present. Level miniature train: a presentation of the station rail e the city at the time and a mountain landscape not to be missed!

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.
