A Master of Wine will accompany you on your French river cruise with presentations, tastings, and wine pairings along the way.

Begin your vacation in the south of France with an overnight stay in lovely Marseilles. Enjoy sightseeing and transfer to your Avalon Suite Ship® in Port Saint Louis. Cruise to Arles, the lovely French town that inspired Van Gogh, and continue on the Rhône River to Avignon. See the 14th century Palace of the Popes — the largest Gothic fortress in the world — and take a guided tour to Châteauneuf du Pape. 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. Take a culinary walk and enjoy free time to explore the city and sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region. Enjoy an on-board cheese-and-wine tasting, and visit Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital. Cruise to Mâcon for an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar.
