What people are saying about Nouvelle-Aquitaine

Top discovery! A good plan that is really informative and pleasant to carry out. You can really discover 3 different worlds, and at the same time feel the historical power of the three towers of La Rochelle. Quality / price ratio more than correct for the three towers. Price, however, identical on site.

Interesting visit. It takes around 1h30 for the visit of the 3 towers. During my visit, the virtual and augmented reality animations were excellent.
