Discover the magic of France by river

The Rhône and Saône rivers meander through the picturesque south of France, where you’ll discover picture-perfect villages, palaces and Roman ruins, and delicious Provençal cuisine.
These two cruises link seamlessly to create this fifteen day itinerary. Start with seven nights cruising the Douro River through Portugal and into Spain, before a flight to Lyon to join the Emerald Libertè for a second seven night cruise along the Rhóne and Saóne Rivers.
