The Rhone

The mighty Rhone is one of Europe’s longest rivers, born from an ancient glacier high in the Swiss Alps and emptying into into the Mediterranean Sea. Join this timeless waterway as it cuts a path along France’s historic and scenic Provence, where Medieval chateaux are framed by seasonal lavender fields and rolling hillside vineyards. Discover Roman ruins in towns such as Vienne, and sample a glass – or maybe 2 – of ripe and fruity Beaujolais or the lauded Chateau Neuf du Papes. From the French Riviera, through historic Avignon to the gastronomic paradise of Lyon enjoy comfort and luxury as you cruise the Rhone river.
