Abbey of Senenque

Escorted Southern France River Cruise, Sept 13,  2021 | Avalon Waterways®

We have special pricing on this 7-night river cruise with 1 night in Marseille pre-cruise and 2 nights in Paris post-cruise.  Agency owner, Ann-Marie Gaudet, will be escorting.

Take a wondrous journey through beautiful France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in well-known French treasures and some hidden gems too!

Embark your ship in Port St. Louis, France, and sail to Arles—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheater, which hosts plays and concerts to this day. On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest gothic fortress in the world. The city of Tournon is beautifully nestled among vineyards and you’ll go on a guided walk of this medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône Rivers and is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Visit the popular Place des Terreaux and stand in front of the famous fountain you’ve seen on postcards.
