La Rochelle is a great looking city, with a lot of very fashionable people on the streets which gives it a real feel of the med.
The restaurants and bars are in abundance, and the prices are reasonable. There is a good buzz about the streets, in the day and very much so in the evening. The port city is beautiful to explore, the narrow streets and the shops are fantastic and not as expensive as you might think. The real must see is the aquarium, as it so well laid out and children and adults alike are sure to enjoy it. I will go back.
