Cruise Overview:

Take a wondrous journey through beautiful France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in the well-known French treasures and some hidden gems too! Begin with an overnight on the captivating Côte d’Azur. Explore this elegant area and relax along the remarkably blue water of the Mediterranean Sea. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France — famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st century Roman Amphitheater. On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th century Palace of the Popes — the largest gothic fortress in the world. The twin cities of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage are beautifully nestled among vineyards and you’ll go on a guided walk of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th century castle. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital, sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône Rivers and is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Visit the popular Place des Terreaux and stand in front of the famous fountain you’ve seen on postcards. This river cruise vacation across France would not be complete without a stay in Paris — one of the world’s most romantic and vibrant cities! The City of Lights has Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum with its elegant glass pyramid contrasting its ancient architecture. A city tour will show you all the must-see sights and you’ll have free time to bask in the lavish cafés and enjoy the city at your own pace. Take time to leisurely take in the graceful lifestyle in Burgundy and Provence, enjoy the specialties of the region and the warmth of its residents while sailing through France’s exquisite shores.
