RHINE & RHONE REVEALED (WINE APPRECIATION THEME)

Tour: WLAW  PORT ST LOUIS  AMSTERDAM
Immerse yourself in French and German culture on this fabulous European river cruise holiday along the Rhône and Rhine Rivers. The views will be spectacular so be sure to pack your camera so you can capture the romance and splendor of this magical journey. Your river cruise vacation begins in Port St. Louis, France, from where you’ll set sail to Arles—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre. In Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest gothic fortress in the world and, later on, join an excursion to the wine region of Châteauneuf du Pape. The city of Tournon is beautifully nestled among vineyards and you’ll go on a guided walk of this medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Lyon is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Take then a guided tour to Beaujolais and the following day to Chardonnay, where you will have the opportunity to taste local wines. A Master of Wine will travel with you on the first portion of this cruise and will hold lectures, tastings and will introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing. Continue on the Rhine and stop in Breisach, the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest, well known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and cuckoo clocks. In Strasbourg, France, stroll through the picturesque La Petite France district. Visit the ruins of Heidelberg’s castle, or stop in Mainz for a guided walk and a visit to the captivating Gutenberg Museum. Sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River. Your last stop in Germany is Cologne, where a guided walk shows you the highlights of this 2,000-year-old city. A stay in Holland’s popular, modern capital of Amsterdam is the perfect way to conclude this sensational European river cruise. And the best way to see the treasures of this 700-year-old city is on a canal cruise along the elegant Grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age."
