Highlights of the Rhone Valley Special Offer

Discover the breathtaking scenery and architectural treasures of Provence and the Rhone Valley on this exciting river cruise.

Join your ship in the gastronomic city of Lyon and cruise to the fascinating city of Arles, renowned for its impressive ampitheatre. Perhaps visit picturesque Les Baux-de-Provence, the jewel of the Alpilles and considered one of the most beautiful villages in France. Continue to Port Saint Louis, your gateway to the stunning Camargue, which can be explored on an optional jeep safari.

Cruise to Avignon in the shadow of the majestic Palais des Papes, and on to Viviers, from where you can visit the Ardeche Gorges, a series of dramatic and truly breathtaking gorges. The final port of call before returning to Lyon is pretty Tain L'Hermitage, where there is an optional tour to the Vecors with a tasting of the famous Clairette de Die.
