Burgundy & Provence ~ Sept. 19-27, 2020 ~

8 Days From Lyon To Avignon

OVERVIEW

A journey of exquisite pleasures.

Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Gauguin on this exquisite journey through southern France; the same beautiful countryside and culture that inspired the masters will now inspire you.

Cruise the Rhone and Saone rivers, enjoying the region's incomparable wine and cuisine and discovering its many treasures-from the medieval wonders of UNESCO-designated Avignon to Lyon's lively river banks. Stroll the very streets of Arles made famous by Van Gogh. Visit Avignon's majestic Palace of the Popes. Experience "Village Day" in enchanting Viviers, including a recital of music composed by Bach and Handel. And for those who wish for a more active exploration of the area, you can kayak on the tranquil Gardon River under the UNESCO-designated Pont du Gard; hike the steepest vineyards on the Rhone; and pedal through the city designed with bike riders in mind while in Lyon. Explore unforgettable "Burgundy & Provence" where tradition is as deeply rooted as the historic grapevines on the hills.
