The Rhone through Provence


sunny 70 °F

We spent the night Tournon, arriving after dinner, in preparation for tomorrow's excursions.
Tournon-sur-Rhône, with the name of Tournon, was one of the seven districts of the Ardèche department when it was created on 4 March 1790. When the arrondissements were created in 1800, Tournon was one of the three arrondissements of the department. On 18 March 1988, the name of the city was changed from Tournon to Tournon-sur-Rhône.

We had a spectacular dinner tonight at the Chef's Table which is a complete tasting menu. This specialty dining is included with your cruise fare.


Our excursion this morning was on a narrow gauge steam train, up the Doux Valley from just outside of Tournon to Boucieu-le-Roi. I was a great ride with some exceptional views!. After lunch we set sail again to our next stop of Vienne, where will will spend the night.
