A Rhone River cruise will be a river cruise through the south of France (and includes a brief cruise the Saone River). As you cruise you will travel through the vineyard covered hills of Burgundy and the lavender-scented fields of Provence.
Your cruise will take you to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, to the places that inspired van Gogh, to wineries and palaces. Your Rhone River cruise will stop at:
- Lyon – not only is the city a UNESCO World Heritage Site but it is considered the culinary capital of France. Do not miss the opportunity to eat on shore. Even if it is not included with your cruise, make the effort and spend the money; you will be glad you did.
- Tournon – one of France’s oldest cities, it is set amidst a beautiful landscape of vineyards and fruit trees. Enjoy wine tasting and perhaps a visit to the Valrhona chocolate factory;
- Avignon – It would not be a Rhone River cruise without a stop in Avignon. A Medieval walled city, Avignon was home to the Catholic Church and its Popes for most of the 14th Century and the Palace of the Popes is a ‘must’see for any visitor.
Your Rhone River cruise gives you the opportunity to cruise through regions most people only see in travel magazines. A Rhone River cruise is a treat for all the senses – the enduring vineyards, culinary delights, lavender-scented fields and the charm of the many small villages that dot Provence.
Rhone River cruises can include the opportunity to continue your exploration of this lovely region with either a pre-cruise or post-cruise package. (or both!). Either before or after your cruise, visit Paris, one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Stroll its wide boulevards, sip wine in a cafe, shop the Champs-Elysees, be awe struck at the Louvre.
Or if you’ve been to Paris and would like something a bit more relaxing, add a few nights in Nice to your Rhone Cruise. Known as the ‘Queen of the French Riviera, Nice is the absolute jewel of the Cote d’Azur.
Because these are packages that include meals and sightseeing, you will save money and time over making these arrangements independently. Added to the stress-free nature of Rhone River cruising and you have a great cruise vacation with all the details handled. Plus, since everything is pre-paid (except for that fabulous meal on shore in Lyon) before you leave on your trip, there is no need to worry about exchange rates and the rising costs of hotels and meals.
