Get to the Heart of Burgundy and Provence on Saga's new French waterways cruise

  • Sail past vineyards, fields of lavender and sunflowers, on beautiful stretches of the Rhone
  • Taste famous local wines including Mâcon and Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Wake up to beautiful scenery and visit medieval Viviers; a town of two parts where narrow alleyways are lined with traders' houses close to the river and the magnificent upper quarter which is home to St Vincent's cathedral and Bishop's Palace. There will also be an opportunity to discover the stunning Ardèche Gorge and the Museum of Lavender.
