Lunch cruise on board the Hermès II

A romantic gourmet break

Discover the capital of Gaul by boat. From the quays of the Rhône River to the Ile Barbe, passing by the Confluence district, admire the landscapes. Enjoy a delightful lunch and visit Lyon in a new way.
Enjoy a gastronomic meal as you float along the river, and see Lyon from an original viewpoint, in a relaxing and romantic atmosphere.

Take in Lyon's landscapes as you approach the Confluence district, a recently renovated area with surprising modern architecture, and sail through historic districts inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage list, and on up the Saône, all the way to the medieval Île Barbe slumbering in an ocean of greenery. And of course, you'll be feasting on delicious food as you go.
Enjoy a three-hour gourmet break. Here on the Rhône and Saône and passing through their confluence, time will appear to stand still.
