If you’re considering your next adventure, why not experience a wine river cruise with Emerald Waterways on our Flavours of Burgundy & Provence itinerary?
Setting sail through the heart of southern France, Flavours of Burgundy and Provence takes guests from the ‘gastronomic capital of the world’, Lyon, on a trip that touches base at Tournus, Belleville-sur-Saône, Tain l’Hermitage, Avignon and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, before arriving full circle back in Lyon.
In Lyon, history runs through the city’s streets, which are lined with 15th, 16th and 17th century architecture, with intricate examples from the Renaissance period making Lyon home to some of the most beautiful and intact historical landscapes in Europe.
Nearby, at Tournus, a gentle bike ride through the quintessentially French surrounding area is a peaceful and beautiful pastime that encapsulates all that is uniquely serene about the region. At Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the ruins of a medieval castle gazes down across the rural vineyards of this quaint village.
But did we mention? Besides its beautiful landscape and architecture, Burgundy and Provence are the perfect regions of France to experience a wine river cruise.
