What a city! Everyone should see Lyon if they have the opportunity. With its old town – a UNESCO Word Heritage Site – its narrow alleyways, rear courtyards, popular quays and large squares on the Presqu’île, as well as the more than 200 sights that are illuminated after dark, this city takes visitors on an extraordinary journey through different eras and cultures. And right on its doorstep, to the north-west, is Beaujolais. Enjoy fine food and wine and spellbinding views on your Rhône cruise. Idyllic destinations await you here.

Welcome to the French town of Mâcon, the capital of the department of Saône-et-Loire. Mâcon is also the southernmost city in the Burgundy region and the centre of the Mâconnais district. Many guidebooks describe it as the ‘Gateway to Beaujolais’. The friendly, almost Mediterranean character of Mâcon’s inhabitants is underscored by a veritable sea of flowers in the city. You are sure to enjoy your time here.

Your idyllic Rhône cruise will now call at Chalon-sur-Saône. Its 80,000 inhabitants make it the second-largest city in Burgundy today. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the Saône region by bicycle or visit the city, with its many beautiful old townhouses and the Cathédrale Saint-Vincent, which is definitely worth seeing.


Arr 05:30 pm Dep 06:30 pm

Today your A-ROSA ship is on the Saône, having left the Rhône far behind, and Tournus is right at the heart of this region. The French town is almost exactly halfway between Mâcon and Chalon-sur-Saône. After a short stop here, the ship will take you to the next port of call on the Rhône and Saône itinerary.

Sie erleben den Tag bei Ihrer Flussreise auf der Rhône in der französischen Metropole Lyon. Die Stadt lädt Sie ein, sie so richtig kennenzulernen. Und bei Ihrer Übernachtung haben Sie auch die Gelegenheit die Stadt am Abend zu erkunden. Die hell erleuchteten Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Dunkelheit sind sicher nochmal ein Highlight der Reise. Und bei einem Drink auf dem Sonnendeck haben Sie nochmal einen schönen Blick auf die Stadt.


Arr 10:30 am Dep 11:00 am

Just a couple of kilometres away from the Rhône, you’ll find Châteauneuf-du-Pape – not to be confused with the wine-growing region of the same name in the Rhône valley. The town’s main attraction is the ruin of the Avignon popes’ summer residence.


Arr 01:00 pm

Avignon is one of the most popular ports of call on A-ROSA’s Rhône cruises. It is an imposing, historic city in southern France that was home to several of the Catholic popes at one time. Make sure to visit the unique and unmissable Palais des Papes on an excursion to Avignon’s ancient quarter. The city and the surrounding region have a warm climate thanks to the Mediterranean – which means a pleasant stay for you!


Dep 12:00 pm

Haben Sie in Avignon schon mal übernachtet? Sicher werden Sie auf dem A-ROSA Schiff in Avignon gut geschlafen haben. Sie genießen den Start in den Tag mit einem schönen Frühstück an Bord und lassen Avignon nochmal auf sich wirken, bevor die Reise auf der Rhône weitergeht.


Arr 03:30 pm Dep 09:00 pm

Arles in southern France is the Provençal city par excellence. This sun-drenched city of terracotta-tiled rooftops occupies a broad bend in the River Rhône. Many of its monuments have named UNESCO World Heritage Sites. What’s more, Arles was once a great Roman port. As if all that weren’t reason enough to visit, the city was also home to Vincent van Gogh for a while. Did you know that?


Arr 08:00 am Dep 08:30 am

This small medieval city in the Ardèche region is absolutely unmissable. It boasts numerous sights and is dotted with well-preserved monuments from bygone ages. Here in the Rhône region, the typical French attitude to life is also very apparent. Watch France’s history come alive in Viviers, and enjoy the diverse range of attractions that the city has to offer.

La Voulte

Arr 12:30 pm Dep 01:30 pm

Die kleine Stadtkulisse von La Voulte-sur-Rhône, ist geprägt durch die in der Altstadt gelegene Burg aus dem 14. Jahrhundert. Schon von weitem erblickt, kann man es kaum erwarten durch die Altstadt zu schlendern und ihr zu begegnen.

Schade, das ist der letzte Tag Ihrer Rhône-Kreuzfahrt. Genießen Sie zunächst das üppige Frühstück an Bord. Danach haben Sie bestimmt nochmal die Gelegenheit einen Blick auf die wunderschöne Metropole Lyon zu werfen, bevor es auf die Heimreise geht. Heimweh nach dem A-ROSA Schiff und der Rhône mit seinen traumhaften Landschaften in Frankreich ist nicht ausgeschlossen. Bis bald und Ahoi!
