Begin your Avalon YourWay vacation before your cruise with an overnight on the captivating Marseille, and relax along the remarkably blue water of the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoy superior hotel accommodations with complimentary breakfast, guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide, and courtesy hotel-to-ship transfer.

Board your Suite Ship® in Port-Saint-Louis for fantastic views on the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in famous French treasures and hidden gems too! Sail to Arles-famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day. On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes-the largest gothic fortress in the world and, later on, join an excursion to the wine region of Chteauneuf du Pape. The city of Tournon is beautifully nestled among vineyards and you’ll go on a guided walk of this medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône Rivers and is a showcase of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Visit the popular Place des Terreaux and stand in front of the famous fountain you’ve seen on postcards. Take then a guided tour to Beaujolais and the following day to Chardonnay, where you will have the opportunity to taste local wines.
