The Rhone Valley stretches from the French Alps down to the Mediterranean Sea, flowing by vineyards, warm stone villages, historic cities, and Roman ruins. There is something about the play of light in the region, where natural and man-made beauty combine to engage the senses and nourish the soul. Our French meander begins in the Alpine enclaves of Annecy and Chamonix. The cruise itself features the World Heritage city of Lyon, world-class wine tastings in both Burgundy and the Cote du Rhone, Chateau visits, and the spiritual enclaves of Cluny and Taize’. We will discover Van Gogh’s Arles and Papal Avignon, marvel at the Pont du Gard and other Roman ruins, enjoy the wonders of the Ardeche Gorge, and examine the evocative paintings of Chauvet Cave.
