Beaujolais and Burgundy, Vienne and Avignon, Lyon and Tarascon; these are but a few of the iconic destinations you can visit during your time on the waters of the Rhône, each as unique and enchanting as the last. As the Rhône makes steady progress towards the Mediterranean, its banks reveal a land of outstanding contrast, where world-renowned cities are bordered by some of Provence’s most esteemed beauty spots, giving you a wealth of cultural highlights to explore.
Your journey begins in the charming town of Chalon-sur-Saône and on to heart of the ‘Golden Stone’ region of Beaujolais, where you can enjoy an exclusive wine tasting. Lyon is the next stop on your itinerary, and you’ll discover just why the city is heralded as the gourmet capital of the world.
From there, you’ll journey steadily south, calling at Vienne, Tournon and Viviers before arriving in Avignon, home to the wonderful Palais des Papes. Tarascon is the last call on your itinerary, and the perfect place to soak up the Rhône’s vibrant Roman-age heritage.
