Day 5 with Uniworld and Titan on the Rhone.

Woke up in another city, it was Frances number two city Lyon. After a breakfast of fresh blueberry pancakes and waffles, we set of for our tour of the old town exploring many secret passage ways which were used for hiding people in the 2nd WW by the resistance. We then headed to the amazing Basilica of Fourvieres. From the outside this is an attractive building but inside it blows your mind with gold mosaics and incredible stain glass windows depict icing biblical scenes. On top of this the view from the Hill of Fourvieres across Lyon is amazing.

We returned to the boat for a lunch of poached salmon oysters and champagne, our waist lines are expanding under the amazing temptations that the head chief offers on a daily basis!

The afternoon was spent sailing Shalons- sur- Aaone. Tonight was the gala dinner night, where we were served Chauteu Briande one of 7 courses! The regional wine from Burgundy flowed freely and it wasn't long until we started to dance to what was one of the best jazz French singers ever encountered. What a night of fun! We'll done Uniworld for an excellent culinary adventure with fun entertainment.
