Burgundy & Provence With 2 Nights In Aix-En-Provence & 2 Nights In Nice (Southbound) on Avalon Poetry II

Product Image
Take a delightful river cruise through France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in well-known French treasures and some hidden gems too! Take in the beautiful countryside, quaint villages and towns, as you sail through the most captivating views of France. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital, is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. With plenty of time to explore this historical city further, be sure to sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region. Beautifully nestled among vineyards is the city of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Continue your river cruise to historical Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest Gothic fortress in the world. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and site of its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.

Disembark your Avalon Suite Ship® in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Aix en Provence for the start of your Monograms® vacation. With two overnights, enjoy guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide, and visit the Cathedral of the Holy Saviour, known for its mix of architectural styles.

Your Monograms vacation continues in 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 or Cannes—known for its famous film festival. In both cities, we provide the services of Monograms Local Hosts®—a “friend in the city” to answer questions, share inside information, and help arrange your activities and excursions.
