Imagine Spring in Provence cruising on board the premium river ship, Amadeus Provence. This new addition to the AMADEUS fleet sails exclusively along the Rhone and the Saone, two of France’s most beautiful rivers, and takes you to dream destinations in the south of France. This region is a feast for all the senses. Join wine personality Steve Thurlow as he leads a 12 day excursion of discovery and enjoyment.
Visit wineries and mediaeval cathedrals and see spectacular buildings built by the Romans that are still in use today. Dine at wineries with their owners and winemakers, relax in the warm sunshine and enjoy the luxury of a floating 5 star hotel.
In May each year there is plenty of warm sunshine in the South of France. In Avignon you can expect highs of 24°C and lows in the middle of the night of 11-13°C.
Wine for Life in co-operation with Lüftner Cruises presents an accompanied wine, food and cultural visit to Central and Southern France. Journey from Paris to Lyon via Chablis, Beaujolais and Burgundy in a luxury tour bus. Then continue from Lyon to the Mediterranean and back on board Amadeus Provence.
