Take in the beautiful countryside, quaint villages and towns, as you sail through the most captivating views of France. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital, founded by the Romans in 43 BC, 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 with its lively cafés and monuments and stand in front of the famous fountain you’ve seen on postcards. Join a culinary walk and taste Lyonnaise and French delicacies. You’ll have plenty of time to explore this historical city further and be sure to sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region.

Continue your river cruise to historical Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes-the largest gothic fortress in the world. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France-famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.A Master of Wine will travel with you on this cruise and will hold tastings and introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing.
