If it’s always been your dream to see France, Pavlus can help! We offer several options for you to explore this historic and beautiful country. And when you take a Viking River cruise to France, you can be sure it will be the vacation of a lifetime!
With the Portraits of Southern France Chalon to Avignon or Lyon to Avignon cruise, you get the chance to see Burgundy and Provence, visit Gallo-Roman ruins in Vienne and Arles, and explore the “City of Popes,” the historic Papal Palace in Avignon. You’ll also get the chance to walk along the quaint cobbled streets of Arles, a place so beautiful it served as inspiration for Vincent van Gogh. Those who appreciate good wine will enjoy learning about the region’s long tradition of winemaking, and devoted foodies will have the chance to eat meals they will never forget when they get to sample all the culinary delights of Lyon. And all of this while sailing along the scenic Saône and Rhône Rivers, past some of the most beautiful vistas the French countryside has to offer.
If you are a true wine connoisseur, you might prefer the Chateaux, River, and Wine tour of Bordeaux. You’ll get to visit the vineyards that are responsible for some of the most incredible wines in the world: Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Sauternes, Médoc and Margaux.
You don’t have to be a wine lover to enjoy this tour, though. The vineyards of Bordeaux offer an incredible beauty that anyone can enjoy, and the tour also includes the chance to investigate the architecture, museums, and amazing food of the region. And don’t forget that you’ll be cruising along the Dordogne, Garonne, and Gironde Rivers, which have an awe-inspiring beauty of their own.
So if it’s always been your dream to see France – or if it’s always been your dream to have an amazing, memorable adventure – Pavlus can help, with Viking River cruises in France.
