Travel Tips for La Rochelle
Built from the trading port of La Pallice, le Pont de la Rochelle liaises the mainland to l'Ile de Ré.
The bridge is 3 km long and was built in 1988.
If I recall it well, there was a péage (toll) before entering the bridge. Though, biking is free of péage.
Since l'Ile de Ré is do-able by bike, renting a bike in la Rochelle may be a solution then visit l'Ile de Ré toll free. Water.. water.. water
I've never been excited to see a bridge. Well, for me, Le pont de La Rochelle is like any bridge, no?
Except that it leads you to l'Ile de Ré, another great territory in Charentes Maritime. Maybe there resides the buzz around this bridge.
By the way, since the retais territory is linked to the mainland by the bridge, is it still to be named Ile de Ré?
"A small town once owned by the king of England"
A small town once owned by the king of England.
As an important Atlantic Ocean port, La Rochelle used to export salt and wine to England and other places in Europe and North American.
Today, it is a very touristic place.
Opposite to "Course des Dames" and on the other bank of "vieux Port", there is a Nordic district where many businessmen from Nordic countries were living there during the old time.
Buildings in this district are renovated to reflect the Nordic construction style - colorful facades.
