BURGUNDY & PROVENCE WITH PARIS, AIX-EN-PROVENCE & NICE (CULINARY THEME)

With paris, aix-en-provence & nice (culinary theme) extension
Tour: WJL1C  PARIS  NICE
Opportunities abound on this delightful river cruise vacation to learn about France and the French. Your adventure begins with two overnights and guided sightseeing in Paris, then take the high-speed train to Dijon and continue by motorcoach to fascinating Beaune for a visit of Hôtel-Dieu. Next, board your river cruise ship in quaint St. Jean de Losne and set sail for lovely Seurre, France’s gastronomic capital of Lyon, as well as medieval Tournon, charming Viviers, Avignon, and Arles. Sail into the peaceful Camargue area to Port-Saint-Louis.

Disembark your cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Aix en Provence for the start of your Monograms extension. With two overnights, enjoy guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide, and visit the Cathedral of the Holy Savior, known for its mishmash of architectural styles. This was Cézanne’s hometown, and in your free time, you may want to take a tour following in his footsteps. In Lyon & Viviers, join a culinary walk and taste French delicacies. On board, a French chef will share with you his secrets and expertize during a pastry demonstration and a Master of Wine will travel with you on this cruise and will hold tastings and introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing. Finally, we’ll whisk you via high-speed train to Nice 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, St. Tropez, or Cannes—known for its famous film festival. In both cities, we provide the services of Local Hosts®—a “friend in the city” to answer questions, share inside information, and help arrange your activities and excursions.
