This mesmerising river cruise and European holiday begins on the Rhine River and continues on the Saône and Rhône Rivers. Enjoy a canal cruise in splendid Amsterdam, as well as guided sightseeing in Cologne, Koblenz, and Strasbourg. Delight in excursions to Germany’s Black Forest and Heidelberg—Germany’s oldest university town with its imposing castle. Also, sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, see the legendary Lorelei rock, and visit the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz. A motorcoach transfer takes you into France’s Burgundy region to fascinating Beaune for a visit to Hôtel-Dieu.

Next, board your ship in quaint St. Jean de Losne and set sail for Mâcon. With a master of wine on board and special culinary highlights throughout your cruise, you’ll sample regional French specialties with onboard wine tastings with cheese and chocolate and wine-and-food pairings. Enjoy a pastry demonstration by a French chef, and attend a cooking class. Visit France’s gastronomic capital of Lyon, as well as medieval Tournon, charming Viviers, Avignon, and Arles. Sail through the peaceful Camargue area to Port-Saint-Louis. Disembark your river cruise ship and transfer to Nice to enjoy your Monograms holiday package with two more nights in France. Here, you’ll walk through the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s most famous boulevard. In your free time, perhaps take an excursion to Monaco or Cannes—known for its famous film festival.

Fly from Nice to Barcelona, where you’ll enjoy guided sightseeing, including Passeig de Gràcia, La Pedrera, Casa Batlló, an inside visit of Sagrada Familia Basilica, and plenty of free time—all part of your Monograms holiday package in Spain. At your service is an expert Monograms Local Host who is available to you throughout your stay in Nice and Barcelona.
