- The Rhone and Saone
Introducing our Rhone and Saone River Cruises
The French regions of Burgundy and Provence are served by conjoining rivers, the Saône and Rhône, providing an unmissable opportunity to discover thousands of years of historical architecture. From the awe-inspiring Roman amphitheatre of Arles to Avignon’s imposing Palace des Papes, 14th century seat of the exiled papacy to the medieval Hospices de Beaune.
The glorious scenery of corn and lavender fields captured by Van Gogh and his contemporaries line these rivers, that flow to the gastronomic centre of Lyons, where exquisite French delicacies may be savoured to the accompaniment of the fruit of some of the world’s greatest wine producing areas, including Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Crozes-Hermitage.
