France at leisure

A journey to be as “extraordinaire” as the destination
Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cézanne on this exquisite journey through southern France; the same beautiful countryside and culture that inspired the masters will now inspire you.

Cruise the Rhône and Saône rivers, enjoying the region’s incomparable wine and cuisine and discovering its many treasures - from the medieval wonders of UNESCO-designated Avignon to Lyon’s lively riverbanks. Stroll the very streets of Arles made famous by Van Gogh. Experience “Village Day” in enchanting Viviers, including a recital of music composed by Bach and Handel.
Explore unforgettable “Burgundy & Provence” where tradition is as deeply rooted as the historic grapevines on the hills.
