Cruise for seven nights from historic Lyon to Provençal Arles along the fabled Rivers Rhône and Saône aboard the deluxe Amadeus Provence, launched in 2017. During your intimate small ship cruise, dock in the heart of each port town and visit six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Roman city of Orange, the medieval Papal Palace of Avignon and the wonderfully preserved Roman Amphitheater in Arles. Tour the legendary 15th‑century Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune, famous for its intricate and colorful tiled roof, and picturesque Lyon, France’s gastronomique gateway. Enjoy an excursion to the Beaujolais vineyards for a private tour, world-class piano concert and wine tasting at the Château Montmelas, guided by the châtelaine, and visit the Burgundy region for an exclusive tour of Château de Rully, a medieval fortress among the vineyards which has belonged to the family of your guide, Count de Ternay, since the 12th century.
