Tournon sur Rhone, France

If Tournon has appeared on your cruise itinerary, then you know you're in for a treat - this stunning part of the Rhone features plenty of gorgeous villages and its eponymous town Tournon-sur-Rhone.

Gorgeous countryside, fantastic heritage and charismatic little streets can be found in abundance here, with the extraordinary rural backdrop of Agenais providing some fantastic photographs. Don't forget to bring your camera!

If you're visiting the town itself, you have a lot to put on your to-do list. The typically French streets are themselves worth a wander, lined as they are with picturesque cafes and attractive churches.

Don't forget to pop into one or two of the taverns in the evening for a cheeky drink. You might even want to sample the local French wines, which are of course of the highest quality thanks to the fertile soil provided by the River Rhone.

Foodies should aim to be in town for August 15th when an annual celebration sees thousands of pies baked up by the residents and put on sale. These are considered a village specialty, consisting of thin layers of pastry over a filling of rum-doused apples.
