Christmas in Provence & the Rhône Valley

NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT
(limited dates/availability)

Covering Christmas in a beautiful ‘breather’ of comfort and service, this is a leisurely, luxury cruise, sailing south from lovely Lyon, visiting medieval Viviers and Montelimar, strolling the historic streets of inimitable Avignon, and enjoying festive fare aboard

A delightful short break at any time of year, this tour is enhanced by the spirit of Christmas, seasonal festivities, and a few joyful surprises. Sailing on the MS Camargue of the renowned CroisiEurope river fleet, the cruise begins in Lyon, framed by the meeting of the Rhône and Saône Rivers, its Old Town alleys united as a UNESCO site, its iconic Notre Dame Basilica overseeing all in the superb, sophisticated city. Our first port of call is beguiling Viviers. The smallest city in France, with the country’s smallest cathedral, it is an almost unaltered medieval enclave, with exceptional architecture and the air of a living museum. From here, we visit Montelimar, then sail south for Christmas in Avignon. Beautiful, atmospheric, and UNESCO listed, it lines the banks of the Rhône with monuments from its Middle Ages heritage as the Papal City, where sturdy walls surround the cluster of churches and chapels, convents and cardinals’ palaces which bear witness to its past; and where you can attend midnight mass.
