Savor the romance of river cruising through a landscape of bucolic countryside, flourishing vineyards and lavender-scented foothills, culinary traditions, and world-renowned landmarks as you cruise the Rhône and Saône Rivers in Southern France. Unpack once and travel with ease as you enjoy seven nights on an exclusively chartered first-class ship. Visit the Palais des Papes in the medieval walled city of Avignon and follow in the footsteps of gladiators in Arles. Sip world-class Burgundian wines in Beaune, the capital of Burgundy's celebrated wine industry, and delight in Lyon, replete with scenic parks and riverside paths. In several ports, choose from a selection of included excursions. Consider taking a guided bike tour along the river or a safari in Camargue, France’s rugged cowboy country.

Roman Theatre and its surroundings and the "Triumphal Arch" of Orange, 3. Historic Site of Lyon, 4. Historic Centre of Avignon: Papal Palace, 5. Pont du Gard).
