“Impressive ancient port”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

The old port are really impressive and in good state. A walk along the wall, several buildings and the docks is a highly recommendable. Much to see and much to enjoy. You can also enter and climb the towers, but you'll have to buy a ticket.

“I love La Rochelle”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you are within striking distance of this town - visit. The Vieux Port and the town are really picturesque and the harbourside is lively and bustling with loads of places to eat and stall with things to buy. Take one of the little ferries for some different angles from which to photograph the towers that define this historic place.
