Cruises to Avignon, France

Avignon, France Mon 12 Apr 2021

Cruises to Avignon, France

The walled city of Avignon is one of the most fascinating towns in southern France, with a host of historic gems to explore—including the fortress residence of rebellious popes who broke from Rome and once lived and ruled here. You’ll see the Palace of the Popes and much more today, and also have a chance to kayak under a 2,000-year-old Roman aqueduct. A special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you this evening. (B,L,D)

Optional Excusions: Choice of Avignon walking tour with Palace of the Popes or Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct visit or "Let’s Go” kayak ride on the Gardon River

Tarascon, France

Tarascon (Arles), France Tue 13 Apr 2021

Tarascon, France

Explore a sun-drenched Provençal town today with an allure all its own. Known for its remarkable Roman ruins, Arles so inspired Van Gogh that he painted some 200 paintings there. Arles has existed since the sixth century BC, when the ancient Greeks founded it and named it Theline. It was here that the Romans built their first bridge across the Rhône River, creating a vital overland route between Italy and Spain. (B,L,D)

Featured Excursion: Arles walking tour

Viviers, France

Viviers, France Wed 14 Apr 2021

Viviers, France

An enchanting village where time seems to have stopped centuries ago, Viviers has a long and storied past that goes back more than 1,600 years—and a splendid architectural heritage to match. At one time, Viviers was divided along religious lines—the clergy lived in the upper part of the town, the laity in the lower part. Your exploration of the town will take you through both parts, as you begin at the crest and make your way to the riverbank. (B,L,D)

Featured Excursion: Intimate Viviers “Village Day”

Tournon sur Rhone

Tournon (Tain-l’Hermitage), Lyon, France Thu 15 Apr 2021

Tournon sur Rhone

If you love fine wine, you’ll love the twin villages of Tournon and Tain-l’Hermitage. Tournon may be a small town, but stirring events took place here: A castle was raised on the hilltop in the 10th century to protect the region, and new fortifications were added over the centuries, including two “new” towers built to defend against Protestant attacks in the 16th century. You’ll see the handsome houses constructed by wealthy merchants and garrison officers when you walk through the Rue de Doux area, and you’ll pass the 14th-century church and the oldest secondary school in France. (B,L,D)

Choice of Tournon and Tain-l’Hermitage twin villages stroll with wine tasting or “Let's Go” Hermitage terrace vineyards hike with wine tasting

Lyon city with Fourviere cathedral, France

Lyon, France Fri 16 Apr 2021

Lyon city with Fourviere cathedral, France

As the epicenter of French gastronomy, Lyon is a city of tantalizing contrasts. There’s much to explore here, from the work of culinary visionaries to silk weavers’ secret passageways. After your choice of excursions, embrace the locals’ favorite mode of transportation with a bike ride—a great way to see the sights. (B,L,D)

Optional Excusions: Choice of Lyon Capital of Gastronomy tour or Silk weavers walking tour or “Let's Go” Lyon peninsula bike tour

Macon, France

Mâcon (Beaune), France Sat 17 Apr 2021

Macon, France

The pace of life is decidedly more relaxed in Burgundy, where endless rows of grapes hang heavy on the vine. The capital of the region’s wine trade, Beaune is renowned for its history, beauty and highly prized wine, as well as its medieval-era hospital—the Hospices de Beaune. (B,L,D)

Optional Excusions: Choice of Burgundy landscapes, Beaune and the hospices or Mâcon walking tour
