Default La Rochelle "on your own?"

We are taking a port intensive European cruise in June/July and looking for a couple of charming ports to not tour, but in which to relax, hang out, eat, drink and soak up. Cadiz appears to fit the bill. Would La Rochelle work too? Is it within walking distance from the ship? Is it incredibly charming?

I enjoyed LaRochelle, interesting town. I did a tour of the "green marsh" area in the a.m. and then took the shuttle back to walk around the town in the afternoon.

You would not have to do a tour as the town is ok to walk around in, sit at cafes, there were street vendors set up. There is an old portion, too, like a fortress.

We were happy to have a lighter day in La Rochelle. There was a bus from the ship to the city center that was 10-15 dollars per person.
We wandered around the fortress and the city and had lunch at a small cafe.
We didn't find too much to do that day, so we went to the Aquarium which was nice and air conditioned. It was a nice aquarium but nothing so amazing that you need to see it.
We are cruising Europe again this summer and look forward to having some intense days and some lighter days.
It really is a charming town but a few hours is MORE than plenty.
Happy Sailing
