The package includes several excursions at one special price. You will save compared to booking the excursions individually. Take advantage and make the most out of your A-ROSA holiday.
DIJON – THE CAPITAL OF THE DUKES OF BURGUNDY (approx. 4.5 h)
The ‘Route des Grands Crus’ will take you through gently rolling vineyards to Dijon, the capital of the historical duchy of Burgundy and the capital of the Côte-d’Or département today. Back in the 14th and 15th centuries a mighty empire was ruled from the imposing Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. Powerful dukes such as Philip the Bold supported the arts by acting as patrons – and their generosity is still evident in many places today. After enjoying some free time, you’ll return to the ship.
IMPRESSIVE WINE-GROWING AREA OF CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE (approx. 3 h)
Anyone who knows anything about wine will have heard of Châteauneuf-du-Pape – it’s one of the most famous winegrowing regions in the world. After a short bus ride you’ll reach the centre of this small town, see a few of the famous winegrowing estates and then taste their excellent product. You’ll also learn some fascinating facts about the region and its wines. It will then be time to return to Avignon, where your A-ROSA crew awaits you.
TOUR TO THE MIGHTY CLUNY CLOISTER (approx. 3.5 h)
This tour takes you to a truly historic place. Today one can hardly imagine that about 1,000 years ago Cluny was the religious centre of Europe. Until the construction of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome was finished, the cloister of Cluny was the largest church in Christianity. Visit the remains of the five naves of this stunning church and discover the fascinating way of life of the monks.
LYON'S INDOOR FOOD MARKET AND CITY CENTRE (approx. 4 h)
The indoor food market of Lyon is named after Paul Bocuse – and with good reason. This star chef was based in Lyon and so he often shopped here. There are plenty of tasty specialities for you to sample here. But France’s second-largest metropolis has a lot more to offer beyond that. Your tour will continue through the city centre, where you’ll take in some wonderful sights.
Special price for children: € 155.40
The excursions take place on the corresponding travel days.
