Sail along Europe’s magical waterways this summer on an exciting 10-night luxury river cruise from Paris all the way to the Cote d’Azur, exploring the Saone and Rhone Rivers. Let Baroque Travel arrange everything for you as you experience a sumptuous river cruise in France.
This delightful river cruise enables you to experience the very best of France from the unique perspective of a luxury river cruiser. Start your adventure with two nights in Paris, then take the train to Dijon. Here you transfer to a luxury motorcoach and travel to Beaune, to enjoy a delectable Burgundy wine-tasting or a chance to explore the Hotel Dieu. Your journey continues through the French countryside to the quaint little town of Chalon-sur-Saône, where you board your luxury river hotel.
