Why Visit Rhone?

A good river cruise for a short holiday

Through the beautiful French regions of Burgundy and Provence

The river makes its way through scenic countryside of hills, vineyards and, as it winds through Provence, scented fields of lavender. You will also pass through some picturesque historic cities, making it an ideal cruise for history lovers. Vienne is one of France’s Cities of Art and History. Visit impressive Roman ruins, including the Temple of Augustus and Livia, as well as a magnificent first-century amphitheatre. At Tournon, you can discover a magnificent tenth-century castle before relaxing in the Gardens of Eden, a tranquil botanical garden in the heart of the city. Chateuneuf du Pape is home to a papal castle as well as one of the region’s most famous wines.  

The city of Avignon is surrounded by medieval walls. You can walk partway across the river on the famous bridge immortalised in the song “Sur le Pont Avignon.” Follow in the footsteps of Popes and discover the splendour of the papal court at the Palais des Papes, the largest gothic palace in the world with remarkable Giovanetti frescos. For most Rhone cruises, the final destination is Arles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with narrow medieval streets that will truly make you feel as if you have strayed into a bygone era. Ancient monuments, including an amphitheatre, date back to Roman times. As well as offering countless sightseeing opportunities, city squares such as the Place du Forum make attractive spots to relax in a café, or discover the small boutiques on the tiny streets.  

The Rhone splits at Arles, with both the Grand and Petit Rhone flowing into the Mediterranean. Between the two arms is a region known as the Camargue. This delta is a wetland of marshes and lagoons, which are a haven for wildlife. Many cruise operators will offer an excursion into the Camargue, where you may spot herds of wild white Arabian horses and a myriad of birdlife, including flamingos, egrets and ibises.
