Sounds of Jazz from Burgundy & Provence - Cruise Only

Take a wondrous river cruise journey through beautiful France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in known French treasures and also discover some hidden gems along the way!

On the Rhône River sits Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheater, which hosts plays and concerts to this day. On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest gothic fortress in the world. The twin cities of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage are beautifully nestled among vineyards, and you’ll go on a guided walk of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital, sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône Rivers and is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Visit the popular Place des Terreaux for lively cafés and monuments and stand in front of the famous fountain you’ve seen on postcards. As you cruise up the Saône River to St. Jean de Losne, be sure to have your camera ready to capture the beautiful scenery and quaint villages passing by—a perfect ending to this delightful river cruise vacation!
