BURGUNDY & PROVENCE WITH AIX-EN-PROVENCE & NICE (CULINARY)

With aix-en-provence & nice (culinary) extension
Tour: WJL3C  PORT ST LOUIS  NICE
Indulge in the legendary cuisine of France on this culinary focused cruise through Burgundy and Provence. With a master of wine on board and special culinary highlights throughout your cruise, you’ll sample regional French specialties with onboard wine tastings with cheese and chocolate and wine-and-food pairings. Enjoy a pastry demonstration by a French chef, and attend a cooking class. Take in the beautiful countryside, quaint villages and towns, as you sail through the most captivating views of France.

Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. You’ll have plenty of time to explore this historic city further and to sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region. Beautifully nestled among vineyards, you’ll find the city of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Continue your French 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 Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.

Disembark your cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Aix en Provence for the start of your Monograms extension. With two overnights, enjoy guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide, and visit the Cathedral of the Holy Savior, known for its mix of architectural styles. Travel via high-speed train to Nice for two more nights in France with a Monograms holiday package. Here, you’ll walk through the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s most famous boulevard. In your free time, perhaps take an excursion to Monaco or Cannes—known for its famous film festival. In both cities, we provide the services of Local Hosts—a “friend in the city” to answer questions, share inside information, and help arrange your activities and excursions.
