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 St Jean de Losne, and cruise to Mâcon for an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar. Visit Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital and a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Take a culinary walk and enjoy free time to explore the city and sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region. Beautifully nestled among vineyards is Tournon, a medieval treasure of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Enjoy a wine-and-chocolate tasting or a walk in the vineyards. Continue your river cruise on the Rhône River 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. Sail to Arles—an inspiration for Van Gogh and home of a 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 to begin your Monograms holiday. 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. Walk through the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s most famous boulevard. In your free time, consider an excursion to Monaco or Cannes—known for its famous film festival.
