Where to discover

As one of Europe’s major waterways, flowing more than 500-miles from its source to the Mediterranean Sea, the Rhone is an important trade route and cultural icon throughout France.

Visit Lake Geneva and witness the glimmer of sunshine on the water or take a stroll along the shore paths. In springtime, this body of water is filled with activities such as paddle boarding and kayaking, whereas in the winter, skiing and sledging entice you out of the cold onto your next adventure.

Further down the river, Lyon is home to the confluence of both the Rhone and Saone rivers as they meet in the centre of this city. Peer at the architecture of Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourviere, explore the streets which date back to Roman times and catch the marvellous funicular railway.

Closer to the French Riviera and the Mediterranean Sea, Arles and Avignon are hosts of history and heritage. With an abundance of landmarks, scenic settings and cool cuisines, both of these cities are as captivating as one another.

A city which entices you in, Avignon is full of history and life where an impressive legacy of architecture and arts has been left to enjoy. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Palais des Papes which overlooks a lively square or wander the streets and be charmed by the courtyards.
As you sail closer to the Camargue region, the Rhone splits into two channels, the Grand and Petit Rhone. Here, you can find the Roman treasures and sun-baked houses of Arles. Inspiring many of Van Gogh’s works and host to a characteristic Saturday market, spend time here and you will be forever dreaming of the winding medieval streets.
Dynamic, thriving and sophisticated – Lyon is a city which boasts a certain flair of fantasy. Having grown in stature over the last decade, this region is one of France’s oldest cities and gourmet capital of the country. Enjoy exploring this urban hub or sit awhile in a bistro alfresco-style, a glass of wine in hand, sourced from the local vineyards of Burgundy in the north.
