Discovery

Alphonse de Lamartine was born in Mâcon in 1790. He was an author, poet, and statesman who had a profound impact on France during the 19th century. We’ll set out to trace his footsteps by following the bronze “Plume Trail” that will take us through the charming downtown streets to the city’s most important, historical monuments, which include the statue of Alphonse de Lamartine on the banks of the river, the Wooden House, Ursuline Museum, Mâcon Cathedral, and Saint Peter’s Church. Enjoy some free time before returning to the ship. We’ll return on board on foot.
