Geweldige kennismaking met de geschiedenis van de stad. Door deze wandeling krijgen torens en bakens een andere betekenis. De gids vertelde honderd uit en bood de ruimte om in dialoog van alles te weten te komen. We waren blij dat we ons verblijf in La Rochelle konden starten met deze verkennende wandeling.

Unser Besuch in La Rochelle mit der Führerin Sylviane war sehr schön. Es war super, dass die Führung stattfand, auch wenn wir nur zwei Teilnehmer waren (Covid-Zeit). Es gab eine Info-Mail am Vortag zur Zeit und Ort des Treffpunkts. In der Hitze (August) waren 75 Minuten gerade richtig, gern hätte ich auch eine längere Führung gehabt. Sylviane spricht sehr gutes Englisch.
