DAY 1: Lyon

Board your in Lyon and take some time to settle in to your cabin. Depart Lyon in the evening and then enjoy your first gourmet dinner on board.

DAY 2: Viviers

At breakfast time this morning, the ship arrives into Viviers, in the Southern Ardeche. Here you can join an optional excursion which takes you through one of the most beautiful landscapes in Southern France. Your tour will include a visit to one of the numerous caves in the area, such as the Grottes des Madeleines, which has no less than 25 subterranean halls, or the Grotte Chauvet, home to the oldest cave paintings in the world. You will also enjoy a visit to one of the Ardeche's lavender producers to learn about the different types of lavender and their uses. During the course of the evening, your ship continues southwards to the city of Avignon.

DAY 3: Avignon

Today you can take an optional walking tour of the city of Avignon. Visit the Palais des Papes, see the Church of St Agricol and walk up to the viewpoint at Rocher des Domes where you will appreciate some fantastic views of the river valley and the famous 'Pont d'Avignon'. The ship will remain in Avignon until late in the evening.

DAY 4: Arles

You will arrive into the city of Arles in the early morning and after breakfast, you can choose to join an optional excursion into the heart of the Camargue, one of the last remaining coastal areas on the Mediterranean which has not been developed into large holiday resorts. This region is known for its white horses, flamingos and wonderful beaches. Your tour includes a visit the lovely village of Saintes Maries de la Mer with its Gypsy Church. The ship will remain in Arles overnight.

DAY 5: Port St. Louis

At around lunchtime today, the A-Rosa Stella arrives at the southernmost point in the cruise, Port St. Louis, the port annex to Marseille and the mouth of the River Rhone. This is your base for exploring the France's Mediterranean coast - why not take a cycle along the beach and enjoy the feeling of the salty breeze in your hair or visit the Flor de Sal Saltworks. In the early evening, the ship makes an about-turn and commences her journey back northwards.

DAY 6: Tournon/Tain l'Hermitage

This afternoon the ship arrives at Tournon and its twin town of Tain l'Hermitage. Located on either side of the Rhone and connected by a pedestrian bridge, La Passerelle Seguin, both towns have a wealth of attractions. From the medieval castle in Tournon to the epicurian delights of Valrhona chocolate and Hermitage and Crozes Hermitages wines in Tain L'Hermitage, this stop has something for travellers of every taste.

DAY 7: Lyon

Here you can choose to join an optional tour of the city by coach, taking in the old town, the so-called Vieux Lyon, which was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvivre and an old silk printing shop. Tonight enjoy a final gourmet dinner on the ship to mark the end of your cruise.
