CRUISE: RHONE ROUTE GOURMET (8 DAYS/7 NIGHTS)

Description From A$ 2753.56

AR3 - with a-rosa CRUISE: RHONE ROUTE GOURMET (8 DAYS/7 NIGHTS)

“L'Art de Vivre” The art of living in France centres mostly on food and drinks. And that is why we have invited a special tour guide on board: the sommelier Verena Herzog. The wine academic is well versed in the beautiful things in life and introduces you to the culinary variety of the region: from the famous wines to aromatic herbs. All of that and more thrives on the banks of the Rhône. And even if our chefs select fresh ingredients for you and treat you to a spectacular meal in the evening, the visit to the market should not be missed. Breath in, feel and most importantly taste! Every market stand praises its products and will proudly serve you some samplers. A tasting at local wineries is a real must for wine connoisseurs. And when one culinary revelation follows the next during dinner on deck, one suddenly realises that the French are right. While enjoying good food and wine with nice people, forgetting the time, talking, drinking, laughing you will realise: Yes, this is the art of living. Or maybe even the meaning of life? Santé.

 09:00

 

Tournus is a small town with a population of about 6000 inhabitants on the right bank of the Saône in the Burgundy region.  A major tourist attraction is the St Philibert Church built in Burgundian Romanesque style and dating back to the 11th century.
CHALON-SUR-SAÔNE 12:30

Record your memories on camera here – and spare a thought for Joseph Nicéphore Nièpce, who in 1826 took the first photo in the world with an eight-hour exposure time. Learn more at the Maison de la photographie. Nearby are the famous cities Beaune and Dijon.
3rd DAY MÂCON 06:00

 

 13:00

 

Mâcon nowadays is known for being a vibrant and lively town. You can take a walk on the main business roads (Rue Carnot, Rue Dombey) for shopping or relax in one of the many cafes. The oldest building in Mâcon is located on the Place aux Herbes. The house is practically entirely covered with unique woodland sceneries.

Even if you haven’t yet paid the ancient Roman town a visit, you’re sure to recognise pictures of it. Vincent van Gogh painted Arles in 187 of his works. A few of his motifs have today been restored to their original state. The famous Camargue is also very close to Arles.
AVIGNON 18:30

 

 

“On the bridge of Avignon, we  all dance there” – the words of a folk song from the 15th century pay tribute to the unbridled joie de vivre at the foot of the Palace of the Popes. And this joie de vivre is still very much alive today.

A sumptuous week, with a further highlight: the dinner at Paul Bocuse. A “digestif” on board will give you another chance to mingle with your fellow passengers.
LYON 22:30

 

 

The old town “Vieux Lyon” features Renaissance houses making it worthy of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is for gourmets too: Lyon is dubbed “la ville de gueule” – the gourmet town.
