Discover France as you've never experienced it before with this 11-day river cruise and tour, transporting you from the French Riviera to the iconic boulevards of Paris. Cruising the weaving passage of the Rhône north through the lavender fields of Provence and the winelands of Beaujolais, explore the rich culinary tradition of the river in Lyon and unearth the incredible heritage of Tarascon and Avignon.
Your journey includes an eight-day luxury river cruise on the Rhône, complete with a collection of special Scenic Enrich and Freechoice events, as well as a three-night city stay in Paris, where the city of light is yours to discover in all its history and splendour. We begin in Tarascon, whose medieval heart is revealed during an enriching city tour. Alternatively, you may choose to visit the Romanesque city of Arles, or explore the beautiful commune of Saint Remy - such is the flexibility of Scenic Freechoice.
In Avignon, stand before the immense walls of the World Heritage-listed Palais des Papes where, as evening falls, you'll be invited to attend an unforgettable Scenic Enrich private classical concert. Cruising steadily northward through Provence, enjoy a Sundowners event on the terrace of Tournon Castle with a beverage and a performance by skilled local guitarists, before experiencing the culinary pedigree of Lyon with a special Scenic Culinaire event.
Lyon is the gateway to Burgundy, where there's time to sample the wines of Chalon-sur-Saône before you'll be transferred to Paris to begin your wonderful three-night city break - the perfect conclusion to this momentous journey through France.
