Tour WAL2C  AMSTERDAM  BARCELONA
Immerse yourself in French and German culture on this fabulous Europe river cruise holiday along the Rhine, Saône, and Rhône Rivers. The views will be spectacular so be sure to pack your camera so you can capture the romance and splendor of this magical journey.

It all begins in Holland’s popular, modern capital of Amsterdam. The best way to see the treasures of this 700-year-old city is on a canal cruise along the elegant Grachten. Cologne, Germany—a 2,000-year-old city best known for its gothic architecture and famous twin-spired cathedral, comes alive on a guided walk. Sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River dotted every mile with ancient castles. Strasbourg, France, located on the French-German border, perfectly blends the cultures of both countries. Stop in Breisach, Germany, the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest—an area of unrivaled natural beauty. Transfer to Port Saint Louis and start the second portion of your cruise on the Rhöne and Saöne rivers. A Master of Wine will travel with you and will hold tastings and introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing.

Lyon is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture, join a culinary walk and taste Lyonnaise and French delicacies. On board, a French chef will share with you his secrets and expertize during a pastry demonstration. Continue to the city of Tournon beautifully nestled among vineyards. Here, you’ll go on a guided walk of this medieval treasure with Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Stop in the picturesque village of Viviers, where, during your walking tour, you will taste local products. In Avignon, visit the Palace of the Popes and take pictures of the bridge in the famous song “Sur le pont d’Avignon.” This remarkable river cruise will take you to Arles, the capital of the Provence region and famous for its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre. Disembark your river cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Nice for your final two nights in France. Then, fly to Barcelona, Spain for guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide.

Your French river cruise, with a visit to the spectacular Côte d’Azur, is only made better with a trip to colorful Barcelona!
