BURGUNDY & PROVENCE WITH AIX-EN-PROVENCE AND NICE EXTENSION (WINE THEMED CRUISE)

With aix-en-provence and nice extension (wine themed cruise) extension
Tour WJL1W  PARIS  NICE
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.

Finally, we’ll whisk you via high-speed train to Nice for your final two nights in France. Here, you’ll walk through the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s most famous boulevard. In your free time, perhaps take an excursion to Monaco, St. Tropez, or Cannes—known for its famous film festival. In both cities, we provide the services of Local Hosts®—a “friend in the city” to answer questions, share inside information, and help arrange your activities and excursions.
