Then, on to Caudebec, where you choose between an included excursion to the poignant Normandy landing beaches or a fascinating “Taste of Normandy” tour. Visit Joan of Arc’s historic Rouen; and in Conflans, choose between a guided excursion to Vincent van Gogh’s Auvers-sur-Oise or Napoleon and Josephine’s elegant Château de Malmaison. Then, head back to Paris for sightseeing that visits Notre Dame Cathedral. Disembark and travel south to fascinating Beaune for a visit of the Hôtel-Dieu. In St. Jean de Losne, board your second cruise ship and sail on to Macon, the twin cities of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage, Viviers, Avignon, and Arles, as well as France’s gastronomic capital of Lyon, where you have time to explore this fascinating city.

Disembark your river cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Nice for your final two nights in France.

In your free time, perhaps take an excursion to Monaco, St. Tropez, or Cannes—known for its famous film festival.

Then, fly to Barcelona, Spain for guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide. Take a drive along the elegant Passeig de Gracia and visit Gaudi’s extraordinary Casa Batlló and Sagrada Familia Basilica.
