    The town is an absolute delight. Great views, and the sort of place that you want to go to again. We also enjoyed the nearby artisan craft stalls.  more »

    Interesting to visit the towers if there little world! When there are a lot of people, the visit is a problem due to the incivility of some people! It is also true that there is an organizational problem, because it does not suspend executives or the news along the stairs! The effect is simple, people stop to read and block the entire passage, as well for the descent that lift otherwise the visit is interesting for the view and it's perfect for a view of the old port for example if weather is.

    We had to make a trip to La Rochelle and decided to mix business with pleasure. What a great sight to behold. The towers show the importance of this seaside town.  more »

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.
