GRAND FRANCE WITH VENICE & ROME

With venice & rome extension
Tour: WLP4  PORT ST LOUIS  ROME
This river cruise vacation showcases France’s charm, breathtaking views, and rich history. Your adventure begins on the Rhône River in Port Saint Louis.

Visit Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh—and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre. On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes and, later on, join an excursion to the wine region of Châteauneuf du Pape. The city of Tournon is beautifully nestled among vineyards and you’ll go on a guided walk of this medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Take then a guided tour to Beaujolais and the following day to Chardon-nay, where you will have the opportunity to taste local wines. A Master of Wine will travel with you on this first portion of your cruise and will hold lectures, tastings and will introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing. Continue on the Seine River, which offers a choice of excursion opportunities, such as a visit to the historic Normandy Landing Beaches, including Omaha Beach, the Point du Hoc monument, and the American Cemetery; a visit to delightful Les Andelys, Joan of Arc’s Rouen, and the choice between a visit to Vincent van Gogh’s Auvers-sur-Oise or Na-poleon and Josephine’s Malmaison. On this French river cruise, you’ll enjoy wine, cheese, beautiful scenery, and stops in charming and historical parts of France, but your adventure would not be complete without a visit to Paris—one of the world’s most romantic and vibrant cities! Then, fly to Venice to enjoy your Monograms package of 3 nights each in Ven-ice & Rome, including guided sightseeing and helpful onsite support from expert Local Hosts® in both cities. Your French river cruise, Normandy Beaches tour, and tour of Venice and Rome, will be hard to match for the beauty, culture, and new sights to recall for years to follow.
