Join us for this exclusive, nine-day French sojourn in Provence and the Burgundy and Beaujolais wine regions au printemps
(in springtime), the best time of year to visit, when almond and cherry blossoms bloom white and blush and the crimson poppies, colorful primrose and purple irises herald in a new season. Cruise for seven nights from Provençal Arles to historic Lyon along the fabled Rhône and Saône Rivers aboard the exclusively chartered, deluxe Amadeus Provence, launched in 2017—one of the newest additions to the Amadeus Fleet.
During your intimate small ship cruise, dock in the heart of port towns and visit six UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the wonderfully preserved Roman Amphitheater in Arles, the medieval Papal Palace of Avignon and the Roman city of Orange. Tour the legendary 15th-century Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune, famous for its intricate and colorful tiled roof, and picturesque Lyon, France's gastronomique gateway. Enjoy an excursion to the Beaujolais vineyards for a private tour, world-class piano concert and wine tasting at the Château Montmelas, guided by the châtelaine. Visit the Burgundy region for an exclusive tour of Château de Rully, a medieval fortress among the vineyards which has belonged to the family of your guide, Count de Ternay, since the 12th century.
A perennial favorite, this exclusive travel program is the quintessential Provençal experience and an excellent value featuring a comprehensive itinerary through the south of France when its abundant flora blooms back to life. I encourage you to book now while space is still available!
