La Rochelle

Driving on the narrow streets can be difficult in La Rochelle so walking or biking will give you the best view of the pale stone buildings that give the Vieux Port, or old port, a distinctly Mediterranean quality.
Change things up with these side-trips from La Rochelle: Vue panoramique depuis le clocher de l'eglise (in Saint Martin de Re), Phare des Baleines (in Saint Clement des Baleines) and La Palmyre Zoo (in La Palmyre-Les Mathes). Next up on the itinerary: meet the residents at Aquarium La Rochelle, don't miss a visit to Towers of La Rochelle, explore the activities along Vieux Port, and see the interesting displays at Association Hermione-La Fayette.
