Your adventure begins with two overnights and guided sightseeing in Paris, before boarding a high-speed train to Dijon. You’ll transfer to fascinating Beaune for a visit of Hôtel-Dieu. Next, board your Avalon Suite Ship® in quaint St. Jean de Losne and set sail for lovely Seurre, France’s gastronomic capital of Lyon. Also visit medieval Tournon, charming Viviers, Avignon, and Arles, then sail into the peaceful Camargue area to Port-Saint-Louis.

Disembark your cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Aix en Provence for the start of your Monograms® vacation.

Travel to Nice for your final two nights in France. Here, you’ll walk through the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s most famous boulevard.
