River Cruise DescriptionTreat yourself to a vacation in France before your Active & Discovery cruise on the Rhône River with two nights in the "City of Light"-Paris. Spend your first day in the romantic city with an unhurried stroll along the Champs-Élysées, or linger over wine and crepes in a Montparnasse literary café-once frequented by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Picasso. The following day, select included excursions such as a guided sightseeing tour of the must-see sites, or a guided biking tour through Paris' highlights, including the Eiffel Tower and Place de la Concorde-with a peaceful rest along the Seine River. From Paris, board the high-speed train to embark your Avalon Suite Ship® in Lyon, the culinary capital of France! With Avalon Choice® included excursions, you'll find a variety of ways to explore each port you visit. Choose from Active, Classic, and Discovery included excursions that interest you-from casual and leisurely to cultural and active. Admire the lovely views of the French countryside, join a culinary walk to discover architecture and local specialties, or take a cooking class in Lyon. Embark on a kayak excursion or simply linger in a sidewalk café; stroll Avignon's papal palace or attend a wine tasting in an underground cave. With so many Avalon Choice inclusions, you'll find the perfect way to spend your day-from a ghost tour in Viviers to a guided bike ride through the Gard region, to a chocolate factory tour. In addition to classic sightseeing and relaxed free time, you can visit an oyster farm, bike through Camargue Regional Nature Park to spot flamingos, or take a painting workshop in Arles-in the style of Van Gogh. Our Active & Discovery Rhône River cruise with Avalon Choice® includes activities and excursions to experience the Rhône River at your pace in every place we go. From culture to cuisine and everything in between, it's a vacation in France made just for you.
