Vernon & the Gardens of Claude Monet in Giverny (France)

Categories: Travel reports, Europe, France

Vernon was the last stop of our river cruise with A-ROSA before we went back to the starting point to the metropolis Of Paris. The small town is picturesquely located in the valley of the Seine, halfway between Rouen and Paris. In addition to visiting an imposing collegiate church and beautiful half-timbered houses in Vernon, we were following in the footsteps of a famous artist in the neighbouring village of Giverny.

Caudebec-en-Caux – Tourist Attractions & Photo spots (France)

Categories: Travel reports, Europe, France

The 2nd day of our river cruise with A-ROSA on the Seine took us further upstream to the small town of Caudebec-en-Caux, which is also the westernmost pier of the A-ROSA on the Seine. From here to the mouth of the Atlantic, it is only about 50 kilometres. Caudebec-en-Caux is a relatively small town with about 2,300 inhabitants. As with many communities in Normandy, the name derives from the Old Scandinavian language: Caldebec means ‘cold bach’.

Paris – Photo spots for the Eiffel Tower & the Louvre (France)

After we had moved into our cabin on the A-ROSA VIVA at 2 p.m., we didn’t have much time until we dropped off at 9 p.m. But since today was really a beautiful Saturday afternoon with bright sunshine in Paris, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to at least go back to the city for a short time to take some nice photos of the Eiffel Tower and the Louve ☼

Seine River Cruise with A-ROSA VIVA (France)

Categories: Travel reports, Europe, France

With A-ROSA we were already on the road in 2017, at that time we went along the Danube with ROSA BELLA: Vienna, Esztergom, Bratislava, Budapest and the World Heritage Site Wachau were on the agenda. We were incredibly excited to do a river cruise because it’s a slow, very slow trip. We were all the more pleased that we had the opportunity to go on a river cruise again this year. This time we went on the A-ROSA VIVA along …

Passau – Tourist Attractions, Things to do & Photo spots (Germany)

Categories: Travel reports, Europe, Germany

After a week of Danube cruise with A-ROSA Bella we have arrived safely in Passau. A shuttle bus of the A-ROSA had driven us and other guests from the Danube pier, which was about 45 minutes from Passau, to the main station Passau. Since our train only went back to Frankfurt in the afternoon, we still had enough time to take a closer look at Passau.

Danube Knee, Esztergom, Visegrid and Szentendre (Hungary)

Categories: Travel reports, Europe, Hungary

After our 2 days in Vienna, today we continued on the A-ROSA Bella on the Danube towards Budapest. Our next stop was Esztergom in Hungary, where our ship was laid out for almost 2.5 hours. The reason for the relatively short stay is that on the one hand the main attraction of Esztergom – the basilica – is only about 10 minutes away from the boat pier on foot and you can easily visit it in less than two hours. …
