Visit Burgundy and the French Riviera in the lap of luxury aboard the Avalon Scenery

In 2011, French public radio station RFI reported that almost 78 million tourists came to France and it’s not hard to see why. Gorgeous chateaus, beautiful waterways like the Seine River and an unparalleled, sophisticated culture are just a few of the reasons that this country is on the bucket list of so many people.

Whether you’re a seasoned Francophile or have simply dreamed of visiting this nation, one of the best ways to experience this amazing country is to take a European river cruise.  One of many options is to sail aboard aft lounge-001076_rtthe Avalon Scenery, a vessel that has wall-to-wall panoramic windows and upscale dining choices like buffets with pasta and carving stations.

Happy Traveler Comment
Traveling overseas to a foreign country for the first time can be an overwhelming task. Dean Barreca was a tremendous help to me in planning a trip with my daughter to Italy and Greece. He was a great listener and quickly grasped exactly what I wanted to accomplish while keeping things within my budget. He offered suggestions that I would have never known about if I had not spoken to him and he saved us money in ways that didn't benefit him at all. He truly looks out for the client's best interest which is a rare thing to find these days. My daughter and I had a trip that we will never forget and we owe Dean a big thank you for all of his help and suggestions that were absolutely perfect. I highly recommend him to anyone planning a cruise. — Natalie D.
