  • 2 museums (model reduced and automata) located one in front of the other with parking. I preferred the Museum of where I found my soul child and admired many automata with decorations (including an entire street of Paris with the different professions or accustomed (to see inside the reconstituted Café). The Museum of the models was also interesting. I'm not bored. I recommend these two museums to all who would be moving to La Rochelle.

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.
