Serrières
se mire dans le Rhône et rêve de son passé de port important sur la voie fluviale entre Lyon et Marseille. Le trafic des bateaux ne passe plus sous ses murs depuis longtemps.
....
Before railroads and highways were invented, the Rhône was an important inland trade and transportation route,connecting the cities of Arles, Avignon, Valence, Vienne and Lyon to the Mediterranean ports of Fos, Marseille and Sète. Before this, traveling down the Rhone by barge would take 3 weeks - it now only takes 3 days. The Rhône is classified as a class V waterway from the mouth of the Saône to the sea.
