Overview

Cruise along the Rhône on a luxury riverboat from Lyon to Arles as you explore one of France's most historic and picturesque regions. Discover Roman ruins, celebrated wines, rich chocolate, and prized “Black Diamond” truffles as you pass through Vienne, Tournon, and Avignon. Tour vineyards, cycle along river banks, and ride steam trains.

Visit France’s oldest church in Tournon, the Palais des Papes in Avignon, and the place where Van Gogh painted The Starry Night in Saint Rémy de Provence. Throughout your voyage, dine on regionally inspired cuisine cooked with locally sourced ingredients by expert chefs and enjoy a personalised wellness program created by a dedicated host. Speak with our specialists about how to add three nights in Paris before your cruise and three nights in Barcelona after you disembark.
