Our French river cruises are an affordable and leisurely way to explore the Rhône River and the Saône River as you take in the inspiring artistic delights of Van Gogh’s peaceful retreat in Arles.
Emerald Waterways’ European river cruises also travel south through France’s exquisite historical Roman ruins, the formal papal residency and the sites of the enigmatic French Revolution. From the fortified city of Avignon with Celtic remnants, Roman invasions and a 68-year period when it was the epicentre of the Catholic church.
