French Alps to Provence

Experience the beauty and joie de vivre of France's Rhone River valley. From a leisurely cruise on the Rhone River, stopping to wander the small cobble-stoned streets of charming villages, to a stay in the deluxe Imperial Palace Hotel, located on the picturesque Lac d'Annecy, this exploration visits the highlights of Provence and the French Alps.

Trip highlights include:

  • Settle in for a five-night stay aboard the deluxe M.S. Rembrandt, cruising from Arles to Chalon sur Saône
  • Take walking tours of Arles, Avignon and Old Lyon
  • Enjoy a private wine tasting at the medieval castle of Château Montmelas
  • Tour the ruins of 10th-century Cluny Abbey, historic center of the monastic culture
  • Relax on a cruise on spectacular Lac d’Annecy
  • Ride the cable car to the top of l’Aiguille du Midi and have lunch at the summit

Whether you've traveled to France before or you’re a first-time explorer, the combination of a deluxe river cruise and a hotel stay overlooking Lac d'Annecy makes this a not-to-be-missed itinerary.
