Cap sur le Rhône

The Rhône has been a crucial link between northwest Europe and the Mediterranean since ancient times. The river’s history reflects that of mankind in Western Europe. Cycling along ViaRhôna, discover an exceptional heritage charting the many civilizations that have succeeded each other.

Well before wealthy navigators plied the Rhône in ancient times, prehistoric men paddled along the river in dugouts. Later came the long, towed convoys of medieval times, and proud riverboat families. Steam boats followed, before today’s container ships. Learn more of this fabulous river history via the numerous participating sights of the Cap sur le Rhône association.
