Day Three With Titan and Uniworld on The Rhone

Our next day’s excursion was executed with the same professionalism. It has now become a hallmark of Uniworld Cruising that I am sure they will live up to.

Avignon is the most preserved town I have ever seen. We have lots of historical monuments in England but few are as old and none are as well preserved. Our guide as previously was an expert on the history of this city and the surrounding region, again another hallmark we will associate with Uniworld in future.

The morning was a little tiring but very interesting and informative with a brief coffee or beer to refresh the parts that were starting to fade. After another delightful lunch we were off again and on our way to see La Pont d'Avignon, the most famous bridge in France - check the back of your next €5 note to see it featured. The second part of this trip was to the Chateauneuf du Pape Vineyard where we had an excellent tour with our vintner guide.

We returned to our haven the SS Catherine for freshening up before dinner and as usual had a sumptuous meal with ample helpings of wine, a short dance break on this occasion, before retiring early to bed ready for tomorrow’s adventures.
