Your Active & Discovery river cruise is full of Avalon Choice inclusions for each port you visit along the Rhône River. Choose the Active, Classic, and Discovery included excursions that speak to you—from casual and leisurely to cultural and active. In addition to classic sightseeing and relaxed free time, you can visit an oyster farm, bike through Camargue Regional Nature Park to spot flamingos, or take a painting workshop in Arles—in the style of Van Gogh.
You’ll have the classic sightseeing and relaxing activities in each destination, along with your choice of included arts, culture, and cuisine excursions, for the French holiday you’ve dreamed of. Take a canoe excursion or linger in a corner cafés; stroll Avignon’s papal palace or attend a wine tasting in an underground cave. Admire the lovely views of the French countryside, or join a culinary walk to discover archi-tecture and local specialties, or take a cooking class in Lyon. With so many included choices, you’ll find the perfect way to spend your day—from a ghost tour in Viviers to a guided bike ride through the birthplace of rosé wines, to a chocolate factory. What better way to celebrate a fantastic French river cruise on the Rhône than by boarding a high-speed train for the “City of Light”
You’ll spend two nights in Paris to explore the romantic city your way. Spend your first day at leisure to stroll the iconic Champs-Élysées or wandering through the legendary artists’ streets of Montmartre, with a selection of included excursions the following day. Select a guided sightseeing tour of the must-see sites, or take a guided biking tour through Paris’ highlights, including the Eiffel Tower and Place de la Concorde—with a peaceful rest along the Seine River. Our Active & Discovery Rhône River cruise and Paris vacation include activities and excursions to experience the Rhône River and the “City of Light” your way and at your pace!
