River Cruise DescriptionTake a wondrous French river cruise along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in famous French locales, as well as off-the-beaten-path gems. This river cruise through France begins in style with two overnights in Paris-one of the world's most romantic and vibrant cities! Explore the "City of Light" with a guided city tour to see its famous landmarks, such as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum with its elegant glass pyramid contrasting its ancient architecture. A Master of Wine will accompany you on your French river cruise with presentations, tastings, and wine pairings along the way. Board your Avalon Suite Ship® on the Saône in Chalon-sur-Saône, and cruise to Tournus for an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar. You'll visit France's gastronomic capital of Lyon-also a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture where the Rhône and Saône Rivers meet. See Lyon's wonderful sights, including the popular Place des Terreaux with its famous fountain seen on postcards. Take a culinary walk and enjoy a tour to Beaujolais, the famous wine region. You'll walk through the city of Tournon, beautifully nestled between the vineyards, on a guided walk with a wine-and-chocolate tasting or a walk in the vineyards. Continue your river cruise to Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes-the largest Gothic fortress in the world - and take a guided tour to Châteauneuf du Pape. On the Rhône River sits Arles, known for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and site of its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day. You'll revel in the relaxing and inspiring views and culinary delights during your vacation in Paris and river cruise through France.
