Rhone River Cruise Holidays
Enjoy a cruise along the Rhone and witness the lush green vineyards of Burgundy to the sun-kissed hills of Provence and the wild ruggedness of the Ardèche gorges to the medieval allure of Avignon. The river flows through France’s gastronomic heartland. Cruises offer many opportunities to taste and buy wine, and it’s sometimes possible to dine ashore in one of Lyon’s excellent restaurants
Numerous historic towns and cities (mostly in modern-day France) have grown up directly on the Rhône River or its key tributary to the north, the Saône; others occupy the wider Rhône Basin. The Rhône Basin is home to the historic French regions of Provence, Burgundy (Bourgogne), Auvergne, Rhone-Alps and Languedoc-Roussillon.
