Two of France’s most celebrated rivers when it comes to both stunning scenery and compelling history, the Rhone and the Saone ensure a truly memorable river cruise experience. You’ll begin this spectacular seven-night voyage with two days in the city of France’s cultural capital Lyon, before setting sail north for beautiful Beaune. You’ll then return south, calling at Macon in the heart of the Burgundy region, and join the Rhone River to call at Tournon and the celebrated city of Avignon, home to the incredible Palace of the Popes. Your journey ends in Arles, where there is a wealth of Roman history to discover.
