Explore Paris, Burgundy & Provence

If you’re keen to river cruise in France, this is the holiday for you taking in two cruises back to back. First board in the ‘City of Love’ and enjoy an overnight onboard with time to explore this romantic city. Your first stop on this spectacular cruise is the provincial town of Vernon, take your time strolling through the cobblestone streets which are reminiscent of the Middle Ages. In the afternoon take a short ride to the town of Giverny to visit the charming stone house and enchanting gardens of Monet. Walk in Joan of Arc’s footsteps in the medieval city of Rouen. Reflect on D-day as you pay your respects at Normandy’s World War II beaches. Discover the imposing Chateau Gaillard in Les Andelys, built by Richard the Lionheart in 1196. Mantes-la-Jolie is your last stop before returning to Paris.

To join your second French river cruise, enjoy a leisurely train ride through the French countryside from Paris to Lyon. Take your time to explore the magnificent city of Lyon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and savour the cities culinary heritage. Sail on to the ancient Roman city of Vienne, before stopping in Tournon for a locomotive ride through the deep gorges of the Ardeche plateau. One of France’s most dramatic and picturesque corners. Explore Avignon’s Palace of the Popes. Toast the Beaujolais vineyards and celebrate the Provençal lifestyle.

Art, cuisine, style, joie de vivre—if you love everything Français, this is for you: a 15-day journey that combines Viking’s popular ‘Paris & the Heart of Normandy’ and ‘Lyon & Provence’ cruises into one tour de force.
