Springtime in Provence

May 18-26, 2022

Travel provider: Gohagan & Company

Join this specially arranged, nine-day French sojourn in world-famous Provence and the wine regions of Burgundy and Beaujolais during springtime, the best time of year to visit. 

Cruise from historical Lyon along the fabled Rhône and Saône Rivers aboard the exclusively chartered, deluxe Amadeus Provence. Enjoy an excursion to a Beaujolais vineyard for a private wine tasting and fortepiano performance at Château de Montmelas and a walking tour of Old Lyon, France’s gastronomique gateway. 

One port call is included each day in a charming French city, town or village. Visit the legendary Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune, the Roman city of Orange, the medieval papal palace of Avignon and the wonderfully preserved Roman amphitheater in Arles. 

Marvel at the UNESCO-inscribed Pont du Gard—an exquisite 2,000-year old aqueduct—and classical antiquities of Vienne. Experience a specially arranged wine and chocolate tasting with a well-known French oenologist in Vienne. 

The carefully designed Pre‑Program Option features cosmopolitan Geneva, Switzerland, and the beautiful towns of Chamonix and Annecy in France.
