Day 6 - Lyon on a guided tour
Arriving in Lyon this morning, we disembark for a guided tour.
One of France's iconic cities, Lyon sits on the meeting point of
the Rhône and the Saône rivers. The beautiful pinks, oranges, reds
and whites of the buildings populating Lyon's riverfront give some
indication of the city's elegance. Our tour takes us along the
streets and over the bridges to explore some of the fantastic
highlights and the extensive history here. The Old Town is a UNESCO
World Heritage site, and many of the small shops and traditional
businesses lend a truly French fl air to our surroundings.
After returning to the ship for lunch, we enjoy an afternoon at
leisure as we cruise to Tournon sur Rhône. This is one of the most
scenic and panoramic sections of the river, and it's well worth
taking the time to admire the scenery from the spacious sun deck.
Rolling hills, dotted with verdant vineyards rise and fall away
under the gaze of various châteaux and stately homes. Overnight
