This luxurious French experience begins in Monte Carlo, with plenty of opportunity to soak up all the glitz and glamour before you transfer to the beautiful surroundings of Provence, to board your ship in Arles. From here, you’ll embark on a memorable voyage along the Saone River bound for Lyon.  On your journey you’ll travel through lush valleys past sweeping vineyards and explore ancient Roman legacies and medieval marvels, in such destinations as Avignon, Viviers and Vienne. There’s plenty of opportunity to sample legendary cuisine in Chalon-sur-Saone, Burgundy and Lyon, before transferring overland to Paris for two memorable days in the City of Light.
