With paris, aix-en-provence & nice (culinary) extension
Tour: WJL1C  PARIS  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. Your adventure begins with two overnights and guided sightseeing in Paris, then take the high-speed train to Dijon and continue by motorcoach to fascinating Beaune for a visit of Hôtel-Dieu. Next, board your river cruise ship in quaint St. Jean de Losne and set sail for lovely Seurre, France’s gastronomic capital of Lyon, as well as medieval Tournon, charming Viviers, Avignon, and Arles. Sail into the peaceful Camargue area to Port-Saint-Louis.

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 mishmash of architectural styles. Here, in Cézanne’s hometown, spend free time with a tour to walk in the artist’s footsteps. Travel via high-speed train to Nice for two more nights in France. 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.
