Art, Music and Wine in The South of France

Journey through the charming South of France, and cruise up the mighty Rhône River from Arles through Avignon and Tournon to the gastronomic capital of Lyon.

Begin in Aix-en-Provence, and experience this refined cultural centre following in the footsteps of its acclaimed native son, Paul Cézanne. Continue to Arles, where Vincent van Gogh lived during the final years of his life, producing some of his most captivating masterpieces.

Then cruise up the Rhône aboard the luxurious MS Amadeus Provence, visiting the once-papal city of Avignon, and enjoying fine wines of the Rhône Valley. In Lyon, enjoy world-class music and art in one of the great centres of French culture.

Along the way, benefit from the insight of four expert tour leaders: award-winning artists Wendy Sharpe and Bernard Ollis, music broadcaster Christopher Lawrence and wine writer Peter Bourne.

Extend your exploration of French art and wine with an optional pre-tour to Nice (Art of the Côte d’Azur) with Wendy Sharp and Bernard Ollis, and a choice of post-tours, Wines of Burgundy with Peter Bourne or Paris Through Artists’ Eyes with Wendy and Bernard.
