Drift through the idyllic scenery of Provence over the course of this 8-day itinerary between Lyon and Arles, discovering iconic French destinations like Chalon-Sur-Saône, Tournon and Avignon. 

The beauty of southern France is yours to discover during this memorable 8-day itinerary. Beginning in the historic city of Lyon, whose gourmet is celebrated around the globe, you’ll travel north on the Saône to visit Mâcon and Chalon-Sur-Saône, which lie at the centre of the Burgundy wine region. From here, you’ll head south to Tournon, where you can choose from a collection of wonderful excursions, including a walking tour of the city’s ancient Roman ruins and 16th-century castle, a guided bike tour to Glun or a hike in the local vineyards. Day six sees you visit historic Avignon and its majestic Palais des Papes, which once housed the papacy of Rome and is considered the most important Gothic medieval building in Europe. On the final full day of your river cruise, you’ll explore Arles, the capital of Provence, which is home to some of the most iconic Roman architecture beyond the borders of Italy.
