GRAND FRANCE WITH MARSEILLE (WINE APPRECIATION THEME)

Tour: WLPQW  MARSEILLE  PARIS
This river cruise highlighting the best of France is certainly grand! Begin your adventure on the captivating Marseille. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh—and its 1st-century Roman Amphi-theatre. On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes and, later on, join an excur-sion to the wine region of Châteauneuf du Pape. The city of Tournon is beautifully nestled among vineyards and you’ll go on a guided walk of this medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Take then a guided tour to Beaujolais and the following day to Chardonnay, where you will have the opportunity to taste local wines. A Master of Wine will travel with you on this first portion of your cruise and will hold lectures, tastings and will introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing. Continue on the Seine River, which offers a choice of excursion opportunities, such as a visit to the his-toric Normandy Landing Beaches, including Omaha Beach, the Point du Hoc monument, and the American Cemetery; a visit to delightful Les Andelys, Joan of Arc’s Rouen, and the choice between a visit to Vincent van Gogh’s Auvers-sur-Oise or Napoleon and Josephine’s Malmaison. On this French river cruise, you’ll enjoy wine, cheese, beautiful scenery, and stops in charming and historical parts of France, but your adventure would not be complete without a visit to Paris—one of the world’s most romantic and vibrant cities! The “City of Light” has Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum with its elegant glass pyramid contrasting its ancient architecture. A guided walk through historic Île St. Louis with its narrow streets, and Île de la Cité where medieval Paris was founded, will be a delight. Walk in the footsteps of the great master artists, enjoy the delectable cuisine of France, and stand where heroes fought for freedom on the beaches of Normandy. This and so much more is waiting for you on your French cruise on the Seine!
