BURGUNDY & PROVENCE (WINE THEMED CRUISE)

Tour WJLW  PARIS  COTE D'AZUR
Deal
Take a wondrous river cruise through beautiful France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in the well-known French treasures and some hidden gems too!

This France river cruise adventure begins in style with two overnights in Paris—one of the world’s most romantic and vibrant cities! The City of Light 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.

Taste some of Burgundy wines onboard your ship. Take a lovely excursion to the Chardonnay wine area. Then reach Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital, which 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, or opt for a wine blending workshop optional excursion! You might choose to visit the Beaujolais region and enjoy a tasting of its famous wines. Beautifully nestled among vineyards, you’ll find the twin cities of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage, where you’ll go on a guided walk of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. The walk will be followed by a wine and chocolate tasting. Alternatively, you can join a guided hike in the vineyard. Continue your river cruise to historical Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest gothic fortress in the world. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Chateuneuf du Pape wine region and taste some of its wines. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheater, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.

A Master of Wine will travel with you on this cruise and will hold lectures, tastings and introduce you to food and wine pairing.

End this historical and delightful river cruise through France with an overnight stay on the picturesque Côte d’Azur. Explore this captivating area and relax along the remarkably blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
