BURGUNDY & PROVENCE WITH PARIS AND MARSEILLE (WINE APPRECIATION)

With paris and marseille (wine appreciation) extension
Tour: WJLYW  PARIS  MARSEILLE
Begin your holiday in France with two nights in Paris before your cruise. Enjoy guided sightseeing in the “City of Light,” to see iconic landmarks, with free time to explore on your own. Travel via high-speed train to Dijon, and transfer to board.

Board your Avalon Suite Ship on the Saône in St. Jean de Losne. A Master of Wine will accompany you on your French river cruise with presentations, tastings, and wine pairings along the way. Cruise to Mâcon for an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar. Visit Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital and a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Take a culinary walk and enjoy free time to explore the city and sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region. Beautifully nestled among vineyards is Tournon, a medieval treasure of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Enjoy a wine-and-chocolate tasting or a walk in the vineyards. Continue your river cruise on the Rhône River to Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest Gothic fortress in the world—and take a guided tour to Châteauneuf du Pape. Sail to Arles—an inspiration for Van Gogh and home of a 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day. May we suggest a glass of wine in the Van Gogh café?

Continue your Avalon YourWay holiday in the south of France with an overnight stay in Marseilles. You’ll enjoy guided sightseeing and complimentary transfer from ship to hotel. A perfect ending to a French holiday—from the “City of Light” to the vineyards of Burgundy and Provence!
