BURGUNDY & PROVENCE WITH AIX-EN-PROVENCE & NICE (WINE APPRECIATION THEME)

With aix-en-provence & nice (wine appreciation theme) extension
Tour WJL3W  ST. JEAN DE LOSNE  NICE
Take a delightful river cruise through France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in known French treasures and some hidden gems too! Take in the beautiful countryside, quaint villages and towns, as you sail through the most captivating views of France. Join a lovely excursion to the Chardonnay wine area. Then reach Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital, founded by the Romans in 43 BC, which 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 with its lively cafés and monuments and stand in front of the famous fountain you’ve seen on postcards. You’ll have plenty of time to explore this historical city further and be sure to join the guided tour to Beaujolais, for a tasting of its famous wines. Beautifully nestled among vineyards, you’ll find the city of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle, where you’ll go on a guided walk, which will also include a wine and chocolate tasting. Alternatively, you can join a guided hike in the vineyards. Continue your river cruise to historical Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest gothic fortress in the world. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Châteauneuf du Pape region and taste some of its wines. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.

A Master of Wine will travel with you on this cruise and will hold lectures, tastings and will introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing. End your holiday with 2 nights in Aix en Provence and 2 nights in Nice. In both cities, we provide the services of Local Hosts®—a “friend in the city” to answer questions, share inside information, and help arrange your activities and excursions.
