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.
