La Rochelle, an old fortified city facing the ocean La Rochelle’s boat-bobbing harbour and arch-covered streets feel more Mediterranean than Atlantic. Medieval defence towers guard the entrance to the Old Port, where diners feast on curried mussels at waterside restaurants. Cross the bridge to Île de Ré for a lazy day on the beach.

"This was one of several trips we did over last 3 weeks. Train was on time, booked seats essential as we had to remove a family who had squatted in our seats, but no argument. Great trip through scenic countryside but stressful transfer to next connection. We had been warned by Rail Europe to take care with only 20 minutes between trains but made it with 1 minute to spare!! Great way to get around Europe and looking forward to next trip! "
