Burgundy, the River Rhône & Provence

Burgundy, the River Rhône & Provence

Join us on this scenic river cruise to the wine regions in the south of France with its lush terraced vineyards and sun-baked hills, dramatic rugged gorges and medieval towns with their delightful streets and charming architecture.

We start in France’s gastronomic capital and explore the beautiful Saone and Rhône rivers, the preferred route of traders and invaders alike since the dawn of recorded history. Everywhere there are reminders of the Romans and the greatest empire of the ancient world.

You will be astonished by the engineering genius of the staggering amphitheater at Arles and the huge aqueduct at the Pont du Gard. Avignon was the seat of the Papacy during medieval times, heralding a century of greatness crowned by the absorbing Papal Palace and its stunning renaissance art collection. Van Gogh created arguably his greatest works in Provence and all this is set in some of France’s most stunning natural beauty – all waiting to be discovered on this wonderful cruise.
