Your delightful river cruise vacation in France begins with two overnights and guided sightseeing in Paris, followed by a high-speed train trip to Dijon, then to Beaune for a visit of Hôtel-Dieu. Next, board your Avalon Suite Ship® in quaint St. Jean de Losne and set sail for Mâcon for an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar. Visit France’s gastronomic capital of Lyon, as well as medieval Tournon for a wine-and-chocolate tasting or a hike through the vineyards.

A Master of Wine will accompany you on your French river cruise with presentations, tastings, and wine pairings along the way.

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.
