La Rochelle, France

La Rochelle, France is a seaport located on the western shore of the country. It is one of the most historic and picturesque cities on the Atlantic coast, and where Bob and Muriel landed in 1925.  During World War II, Hitler built a submarine base there from where German U-boats preyed upon transport ships traveling between the U.S. and England.  Scenes from the movies “Das Boot” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” were shot at this submarine base.
