Montmerle

Today we pulled up to a small town along the Soane River near the province of Beaujolais. We boarded tour buses and were taken through the French countryside to the Abbey of Cluny, built in 11th century. It was the largest cathedral in the world until the construction of St. Peter’s basilica in Rome. Only about 5 % is still standing. But impressive none the less. We also visited the required chèvre farm and tasted goat cheese and Macon villages, a white wine made with the Chardonnay grape. We also travelled through the town of Belleville. We only have one more full day On board before traveling to Paris 😦
