|Suze la Rousse wine University|
Tina Concetta got word about her Passport from the Italian Embassy in Marseille, so we had to decide how - when - where to go in all, for how long and all the rest!
Hotel reserved near the Embassy, just one night, which gives us 2 days to sightsee!
Vieux Port, Bouillabaisse, les Calanques (maybe) and generally. Not forgetting the Italian PASSPORT!
We may leave Monday 4th June, take our time eating at midday in a Routiers, take our chance on a hotel for Monday Night, arrive in Marseille on the Tues 5th - book in to the hotel and go looking......!
Wednesday 6th early - at 0930hrs - Italian Embassy - PASSPORT!
Depending how long that takes, back to hotel, book out and take off towards Orange and Bollene, passing many other well known places like Avignon, our aim being more Routiers restaurants, and the Wine University village of Suze la Rousse (Google it!) where the wine to be bought is second only to the best Burgundy, just 1 tenth the price! Fill up our 6 x 5 litre containers (should last a couple of days) look for a clever little restaurant in or around the unique, one and only European wine University village.
Corkage (opening your "brought with you wine") is not charged here! Then again there is a tendency to be rather cluttered on the tables - Students have to learn all about "silver service" so there are hundreds of glasses - all different!
From there - Autoroute - Nimes/Gallargues/Vauvert to the Ancestral home!
Nice little trip with lots of aims and points of purpose - just as I like it - pleasure and business!
See ya there............!
