Vienne is an ancient city in the northern Rhône-Alpes region of France, near the famed wine region called Côte Rôtie in the Northern Cotes du Rhone. Inhabited since ancient times, Vienne offers some very interesting Roman ruins to visit. Those little tourist trains, the ones you see going through the heart of medieval cities, here actually take you out to the wine areas. See: Côte-Rôtie en Vienne City Tram.
Vienne offers fairly hot summers and mild winters. Rainfall is fairly sparse, especially in the colder months.
The perfect time to go to Vienne? Perhaps it's during the summer jazz festival, Jazz à Vienne, usually held at the end of June.
Summer is a fine time to visit as well. Fall is best for wine lovers, as the leaves turn and the wine harvest festivals are in full swing. Vinalia allows you to experience the Roman grape harvest, for example, in early October.
