BURGUNDY & PROVENCE WITH NICE & BARCELONA (CULINARY THEME)

With nice & barcelona (culinary theme) extension
Tour: WJL4C  ST. JEAN DE LOSNE  BARCELONA
Take a delightful river cruise through France along the Rhône and Saône Rivers with guided sightseeing in known French treasures and some hidden gems too! Take in the beautiful countryside, quaint villages and towns, as you sail through the most captivating views of France. Lyon, France’s gastronomic capital, founded by the Romans in 43 BC, 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 with its lively cafés and monuments and stand in front of the famous fountain you’ve seen on postcards. Join a culinary walk and taste Lyonnaise and French delicacies. You’ll have plenty of time to explore this historical city further and be sure to sample Beaujolais, the famous wine of the region. On board, a French chef will share with you his secrets and expertize during a pastry demonstration. Beautifully nestled among vineyards, you’ll find the city of Tournon, a medieval treasure with plenty of Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle, where you’ll go on a guided walk. Stop in the picturesque village of Viviers, where, during your walking tour, you will taste local products. Continue your river cruise to historical Avignon and see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes—the largest gothic fortress in the world. On the Rhône River sits Arles, France—famous for inspiring the paintings of Van Gogh and its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre, which hosts plays and concerts to this day.A Master of Wine will travel with you on this cruise and will hold tastings and introduce you to the concept of food and wine pairing. Disembark your river cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Nice for your final two nights in France. Fly from Nice to Barcelona, where you’ll enjoy guided sightseeing, including Passeig de Gràcia, La Pedrera, and inside visits Gaudi’s Casa Batlló, and Sagrada Familia Basilica, and relaxing free time. At your service is an expert Monograms Local Host® who is available to you throughout your stay in Nice and Barcelona.

A mixture of French landscapes, cuisine, and iconic sights, adding some spice and flavour of the colourful city of Barcelona, your scenic river cruise through France and holiday package in Spain make the perfect recipe for a European getaway.
