White City

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.

Start off your visit on the 18th (Thu): don't miss a visit to La Grande Roue, explore the activities along Vieux Port, and then enjoy the sea views from Phare des Baleines. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: visit a coastal fixture at Phare de la Coubre, then examine the collection at Fort Vauban, and then kick back and relax at Plage de Chatelaillon.

To see other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the La Rochelle trip builder app.
