Beginning in Arles, a former Roman city you will embark aboard a boutique river ship to travel through some of the key wine appellations.
Slowly travel along the scenic Rhone river visiting historic Roman and French sites while sampling the local Rose of Provence and reds of the Rhone regions until reaching the gastronomic city of Lyon where the Rhone and Saône rivers converge.
