Rhone Treasures Special Offer

The Beaujolais region of France, overlapping Burgundy in the north and the Rhone in the south, has been producing some of the most popular wines for many centuries. This luxury all-inclusive cruise along the Rhone includes visits to local winery and a truffle farm for a unique insight into the local areas.

Join your luxury ship in Lyon, where there is a full day to discover this gastronomic capital of France, before cruising to the Beaujolais region.

See the many ancient features in Avignon including the ramparts built to protect the city in the 1300s, the Palace of the Popes and the Pont du Gard. Continue on to Arles from where you can visit a Provencal olive mill.

A superb choice of guided excursions each day enable you to tailor your experience. There are also two Signature Experiences included - indulge in a feast at L'Abbaye de Collonges which is owned by Michelin-starred chef Paul Bocuse, enjoy a private tour of Grignan Castle (2018 only) with cocktails whilst being entertained by local musicians and visit the Pont du Gard (2019 only) for a tour and tasting, followed by a cocktail reception accompanied by local musicians.
