Take a wondrous river cruise through France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers, and complete your European holiday with a bonus Monograms holiday package in beautiful Nice and Barcelona. Indulge in the legendary cuisine of France on this culinary focused cruise through Burgundy and Provence.

Enjoy a pastry demonstration by a French chef, and attend a cooking class.

Embark your Suite Ship in St. Jean de Losne and sail to Lyon, a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Beautifully nestled among vineyards, you’ll find the twin cities of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage. Enjoy a guided walk of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins. Continue your river cruise to historical Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes. On the Rhône River sits Arles—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre.

Disembark your river cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Nice where you join your Monograms® holiday package for your final two nights in France. Here, you’ll walk through the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s most famous boulevard. In your free time, perhaps take an excursion to Monaco or Cannes—known for its famous film festival. Fly from Nice to Barcelona, where you’ll enjoy guided sightseeing, including Passeig de Gràcia, La Pedrera, Casa Batlló, an inside visit of Sagrada Familia Basilica, and relaxing free time—all part of your Monograms holiday package in Spain.
