This incredible 15-day voyage offers the perfect opportunity to experience France’s stunning scenery and fascinating history, not to mention some of its delicious cuisine. Boarding your ship in Arles on the Provence coast, you’ll sail north along the Rhone and Soane Rivers, taking in such historic destinations as Avignon, Vienne and Lyon, before disembarking in Dijon to transfer to Paris for the second stage of your journey. Here, you’ll explore the beautiful and historic ports of the Seine, such as Vernon which serves Giverny and the former home of Claude Monet and Rouen, your gateway to the historic Normandy beaches. Your cruise ends in Paris, with plenty of time to see the sights.
