Board your Avalon Suite Ship on the Saône in St. Jean de Losne. A Master of Wine will accompany you on your French river cruise with presentations, tastings, and wine pairings along the way. Cruise to Mâcon for an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar. Visit Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital and a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Take a culinary walk and enjoy free time to explore the city and sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region. Beautifully nestled among vineyards is Tournon, a medieval treasure of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Enjoy a wine-and-chocolate tasting or a walk in the vineyards. Continue your river cruise on the Rhône River to Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest Gothic fortress in the world—and take a guided tour to Châteauneuf du Pape. Sail to Arles—an inspiration for Van Gogh and home of a 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day. May we suggest a glass of wine in the Van Gogh café?
