The placid Rhône and Saône rivers flow through the Burgundy, Beaujolais and Provence regions of France, where vineyards produce world famous wines and ancient cities are a delight to explore. In Burgundy and Beaujolais, winding country roads lead to beautiful chateaux, while in Provence, the ancient cities of Avignon and Arles prove as irresistible as the wines, food and cheeses of the region. Princesse de Provence sails from Lyon or Arles every Saturday on seven-day cruises through this storied French countryside.

A pre- or post-cruise addition in Paris or Nice can be conveniently added since these cities are connected to each others by France's High Speed Train, the TGV. Your "floating hotel" will of course take you to the historic city of Avignon. Optional shore excursions along the way include vineyards for wine tastings, countryside chateaux, churches, tranquil villages and animated cities with tree-lined avenues, sidewalk cafes and ancient monuments dating from Roman times.
