This France river cruise adventure begins in style with two overnights in Paris—one of the world’s most romantic and vibrant cities!

A guided city tour will show you all the must-see sights.

You’ll visit Lyon, a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture, as well as France’s gastronomic capital! Situated at the junction of the Rhône and Saône Rivers, Lyon offers wonderful sights, including the popular Place des Terreaux with its famous fountain seen on postcards.

Beautifully nestled among vineyards, you’ll find the twin cities of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage, where you’ll go on a guided walk of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Continue your river cruise to historical Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest gothic fortress in the world. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheater, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.
