This river cruise highlighting the best of France is certainly grand! Enjoy wine, cheese, beautiful scenery, and stops in the most charming and historical parts of France.

Set sail on the Seine River and go on an excursion to the historic Normandy Landing Beaches, including Omaha Beach, the Point du Hoc monument, and the American Cemetery. Visit Joan of Arc's Rouen, and choose between Claude Monet's Giverny or the Bizy Castle, nicknamed "Normandy's Versailles"; Vincent Van Gogh's Auver-sur-Oise or Napoleon and Josephine's Malmaison. Before you depart the beautiful Seine River, you'll spend time in Paris-one of the world's most romantic 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. Go on a guided walk through the historic Île St. Louis and marvel at the view as you ascend the Eiffel Tower. Lyon, France's gastronomic capital, is the third-largest city and a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. The twin cities of Tournon and Tain l'Hermitage are beautifully nestled among vineyards. Go on a guided walk of Tournon, offering plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes-the largest gothic fortress in the world. Situated on the Rhône River, Arles is famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheater, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.

As a perfect finale to your river cruise vacation, spend time in the captivating French Riviera, also known as the Côte d'Azur. Explore this elegant area and relax along the remarkably blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
