La Rochelle

— 1 night

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 13th (Fri): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Andre Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Towers of La Rochelle, then get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquarium La Rochelle, and finally get outside with Outdoor Activities. Keep things going the next day: explore the activities along Vieux Port, see the interesting displays at Association Hermione-La Fayette, and then see the interesting displays at Musee d'histoire naturelle de La Rochelle.
