Travel from historic Tarascon to the heart of Beaujolais, through fragrant lavender fields, ancient cities, and vineyards laden with old world vines. The Rhône cuts through a string of unforgettable destinations, from Avignon and Les Baux, to the culinary capital of Lyon – introducing the flavours of the South of France.

Begin in the Provençal town of Tarascon, where you can visit a Les Baux olive farm, tour Saint-Paul de Mausole Monastery, or explore the beautifully-preserved Romanesque architecture of Arles. In Avignon, attend a classical virtuoso music concert within the ancient walls of the Palais des Papes – an exclusive Scenic Enrich experience that will live long in the memory.

Soak up an afternoon in picturesque Tournon, complete with a visit to Tournon Castle, where you’ll enjoy an aperitif accompanied by a performance from local guitarists – the perfect soundtrack to this delightful Scenic Sundowners event. From here, cruise to Lyon, where you can take a cycling tour of the city’s charming Botanical Gardens, or go shopping with a chef, who will introduce the city’s fabled culinary heritage.

Finally, cruise through the ‘Golden Stone’ region of Beaujolais to Macon and Chalon-sur-Saône, where you’re invited to raise a glass of fine French wine and toast the end of this unforgettable journey.
