Starting life as a breathtaking glacier in the Swiss Alps, the glorious Rhone flows through Lake Geneva before meeting the Mediterranean Sea west of Marseilles. A cruise along its scenic banks will reveal France at its most picturesque. Think lush, verdant vineyards, sun-baked hilltops and lavender-scented countryside.
The river flows through France’s gastronomical heartlands and a river cruise will offer you many opportunities to sample the region’s best offerings, while stops in the culinary capital of Lyon and the wine mecca of Burgundy are sure to keep any budding connoisseur thoroughly happy.
But pleasing the palate is not the only thing that this outstanding cruise has to offer. The exquisite landscapes and cultural heritage are thought to have inspired artistic masterpieces by the likes of Van Gogh, Cézanne and Gauguin.
