Saone River Cruises

Sail through the beautiful countryside of France's Burgundy region on a Saone River cruise. You can sample its famed wines and stroll through enchanting towns, all while learning about the local history and culture. Cruises are often combined with sailings of the Rhone River, which flows through Provence to the south.

Most itineraries visit Beaune, nestled in an area that produces some of Burgundy's best vintages. Tour the Hospices de Beaune, a 15th-century former charity hospital that's notable for its colorful roof of glazed tiles. In Macon, see the Old St. Vincent Cathedral, founded in the sixth century and an enduring symbol of the city, and perhaps join an excursion to a wine cellar. In Lyon, located where the Saone meets the Rhone, you can see Roman remains and Renaissance architecture, and sample the cuisine that helped make this city France's leading gastronomic center.

Your accommodations, meals and guided sightseeing are included in the upfront price. Cruise and tour directors handle all the day-to-day details, making for a hassle-free and enriching vacation.
