Burgundy & Provence

Avignon to Lyon | 8 Days
Date Range: Aug 2015 - Nov 2015Ship: S.S. Catherine

From Côtes du Rhône to crêpes suzette and sun-glazed fields to Van Gogh’s Arles—this is a journey of exquisite pleasure for all your senses.

Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Gauguin on this exquisite journey through southern France; the same beautiful countryside and culture that inspired the masters will now inspire you. You’ll cruise the serene Rhône and Saône rivers on Uniworld’s striking Super Ship, S.S. Catherine, enjoying the region’s incomparable wine and cuisine and discovering its many treasures—from the medieval wonders of UNESCO-designated Avignon to the hum and thrum of lively Lyon’s Les Halles food market—along the way.

Provençe, once an independent country, has retained a unique identity shaped by the Rhône delta, the welcoming Mediterranean coast, and a hospitable climate. Discover a Roman amphitheatre still in use after millennia. Ramble through markets erected on the cobbled squares of delightful villages, and visit the magnificent Palace of the Popes before entering beautiful Burgundy. Admire the Maison des Chevaliers (“House of Knights”) in picturesque Viviers and spend a morning in Beaune, the wine capital of the region, exploring a palatial medieval hospital where world-famous wine auctions have taken place for hundreds of years.

Come, explore unforgettable “Burgundy & Provence,” where tradition is as deeply rooted as the historic grapevines on the hills.
