Cruises to Tournon

About Tournon

Nestled in a particularly scenic and lovely section of the Rhone River Valley, Tournon is dominated by its signature castle, dating back to the 15th century. This medieval stronghold is in a remarkably good state of preservation as is the convent (now a school) and commercial buildings from that same period. The Chateau Museum (located in the castle) is certainly worth a look and there are numerous shops and small eateries clustered around.

The vineyards here, and on the hillsides of Tain-l'Hermitage, are part of the Hermitage Appellation, known for its red Syrah wines. Famous vintages are grown here; one of the most expensive bottles of wine ever was sold at auction, a 1961 Jaboulet La Chapelle, for nearly $15,000. The pedestrian bridge was designed by Marc Seguin, the inventor of the cable bridge. This makes it quick and easy to cross the river and visit Tain-l'Hermitage on the opposite side. Many pop in to visit the Valrhona Chocolate Museum.

Tournon Cruise Reviews
Fascinating steam train trip through the Ardeche Conservancy area. The train cars were built in 1906 and the guide's story of how the farmers protected Jewish refugees during WW II was incredibly enlightening.... Read More
