What better place to explore the best in French wines than in France itself? Cruise from Provence to Paris, beginning with the lovely town of Arles. Relax in the Van Gogh café for a glass of wine in the setting that inspired the artist. In Avignon, visit the Palace of the Popes and take an excursion to tour Chteauneuf du Pape. Cruise to beautiful Viviers and medieval Tournon, nestled among the vineyards, for a wine-and-chocolate tasting or a walk through the vineyards. Visit Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France. Enjoy an on-board wine-and-cheese tasting, and cruise to Mcon for an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar. Disembark your ship in St. Jean de Losne, transfer to Beaune and catch a high-speed train to Paris. Enjoy a full day in the “City of Light” with guided sightseeing of the iconic landmarks and free time to stroll.

Cruise on the Seine River to Conflans. Choose a guided tour of Vincent Van Gogh’s home or the opulent Chteau de Malmaison-Napoléon and Josephine’s lavish home. In Rouen, take a guided sightseeing tour in the city of Joan of Arc. From Caudebec, join an excursion to Normandy with your choice of a “Taste of Normandy” excursion in the pastoral landscapes, or a tour of the WWII landing beaches and Allied monuments and cemeteries. A moving experience to be sure. Enjoy crepes and pastry while sailing to Vernon to visit Monet’s home and gardens, so beautifully captured in his impressionist paintings. Your cruise concludes in Paris, where you’ll board a high-speed train to begin your Monograms® vacation in London. Spend three nights in this exciting and historic city, including guided sightseeing, superior accommodations, and plenty of free time to explore as you please.
