Burgundy & Provence (2017) : S.S. Catherine

8 Days From Lyon To Avignon

OVERVIEW

A journey through the beautiful landscapes that inspired the Impressionists.

Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Gauguin on this exquisite all-inclusive journey through southern France, reveling in the same sun-drenched scenery that captivated the masters. Cruise the serene Rhone and Saone rivers, enjoying the region's incomparable wine and cuisine and discovering its many treasures, from the medieval wonders of UNESCO-designated Avignon to the lively Les Halles food market in Lyon. Discover an ancient Roman amphitheatre still in use today, visit Avignon's majestic Palace of the Popes, and enjoy a recital of music composed by Bach and Handel while in enchanting Viviers. You'll also spend time in Beaune, the wine capital of the region, and taste Cotes du Rhone wines at the renowned Hermitage vineyards.

Connoisseur Collection (Select sailings)

Wine, prized truffles and a taste of history are only a few of the highlights of this special culinary journey. You'll visit the culinary mecca of Lyon, France's culinary capital and home to l'Institut Paul Bocuse, founded by a true ambassador of modern French cuisine. Hunt for "black diamonds" with a truffle farmer and his expertly trained hound, and celebrate the tradition of winemaking at a once-in-a-lifetime induction ceremony you'll rave about for years to come.
