Rhône Route Méditerranée 2025 - A-ROSA LUNA

Städtereise Lyon mit A-ROSA
Sightseeing Avignon mit A-ROSA

Highlights of the Rhône cruise

Cast off for savoir vivre, art and life.

From Lyon to Viviers, Avignon, Arles, Port St. Louis and Tournon/ Tain-l´Hermitage to Lyon.

What is it that makes the south of France so special? So different from the other beautiful Mediterranean regions? Maybe it’s the fact that everything is a little more intense. The people, who are always so animated and open; the hard, angular dialect; the picturesque landscape with its dry red earth; the breathtaking ravines and even wild white horses. The mistral, which regularly blows stormily into your lungs. The wines are full-bodied and good. And then there’s the fantastic cuisine scented with herbs and olives, and the art, which positively hurls vibrant colours into the eye. The buildings play their part, too. Papal palaces, monasteries and castles, stony and awe-inspiring. The international jet set on the Côte d’Azur aren’t exactly known for understatement either. All of this is guaranteed to make you fall in love with the south of France – not just a little, but head over heels. And to have a holiday that is a little more intense. For all the senses.

A-ROSA Flussreise in die Camargue

Carmague

As we move closer to the Mediterranean, the scenery on this cruise starts to change, becoming wilder and more untamed. The Rhône begins to fragment here, carrying along some 20 million tonnes of stones, sand and clay with it every year and washing it all into the Mediterranean. The Rhône Delta is known for its black bulls, white horses and pink flamingos – you can watch the latter between the salt marshes and rice paddies, filtering water through their bills to extract plankton. This marshland is unique in France and covers 120,000 hectares. Most of the area was granted national park status in 1970. Don’t miss the small town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, with its ninth-century fortified church.

Französisches Flair auf einer Rhônereise

Arles

The Night Cafe, Cafe Terrace at Night and Trinquetaille Bridgein Arles are just three of Van Gogh’s many works that portray Arles at its most beautiful. However, Van Gogh wasn’t the only big name who was fond of the city. During Roman times, there was already a flourishing metropolis on this spot. Constantine the Great made Arles his seat of government in the fourth century. Nowadays, the city is a blend of modern urban developments and historic monuments – and the inhabitants seem completely at ease living between the past and the present. This kind of laid-back attitude is a special feature of this cruise on the Saône and the Rhône.

Frankreich mit A-ROSA erleben

Provence

Taken literally, savoir-vivre means ‘knowing how to live’. And living well is something that the people of Provence know a great deal about. Surrounded by gnarled olive trees, lilac-hued lavender fields and vineyards that produce the best red wines, it’s a place to relax and enjoy life. In the summer, you can watch one of the local farmers harvest fruit – and maybe lend a hand yourself. Perhaps you’ll even be rewarded with a glass of local wine or a dish of bouillabaisse. Other regional specialities include white nougat from Montélimar, candied fruits from the town of Apt and the famous truffles from the Vaucluse Mountains. Provence is a place where pleasure is a priority.

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.

Städtereise Lyon mit A-ROSA

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.

Viviers

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!

Avignon Flussreise mit A-ROSA

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?

Port St. Louis

Arr pm Dep pm

Around 40 kilometres south of Arles and some 65 kilometres west of Marseilles is the small port city of Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône. The town is located on the left bank of the Rhône, just a few kilometres from the mouth of the river to the Mediterranean Sea. Here you’ll have the opportunity to become better acquainted with the Camargue and the Rhône. And the view from the Saint Louis tower will confirm just how stunning the Rhône region really is.

Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône entdecken mit A-ROSA

Picturesque Tournon lies on the bank of the Rhône – you will be able to admire it from the river. The Rhône region’s mild climate has allowed Le Jardin d’Eden park in Tournon to really flourish. It is a real oasis of relaxation. For nature lovers, it’s also the perfect place for discovering new plants and trees, and is a must-see attraction. The town, which is near Lyon, also has a lot to offer for culture fans and history buffs.
