Tour Operator:

France's storied southeastern region is known for its fields of olive trees, vineyards, seasonal sunflowers and lavender, medieval architecture, and French markets. The sum of these glorious parts creates an inspiring setting for discovery along the scenic Rhône and Saône rivers heightened by an embarrassment of culinary riches. Your palate will delight in regional delicacies from bouillabaisse and ratatouille to pastis and rosé; you will visit an artisanal olive oil mill, witness a truffle hunt, and experience the art of French cheesemaking; and you will channel your inner baker when you craft a baguette under the tutelage of a master.

Beneath the azure Mediterranean sky, ignite your curiosity ambling through the traboules, a network of mysterious passageways in Lyon. Soak in historic Avignon, home to the Palais des Papes, or Palace of Popes, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Delight in the quaint village of Les Baux-de-Provence perched in the picturesque Alpilles mountains. Culture, history, and natural beauty stimulate the mind and satisfy the soul on this journey.

Cabins aboard the Amadeus Provence, our home base for seven nights, are the perfect place to unwind after immersive shore excursions. Broad windows, stylish furnishings, and attentive room service complement the vessel’s five-course evening menus and spacious public areas.

Flavors programs are among W&L’s most popular tours, so spaces are expected to sell out quickly. Since W&L pricing reflects a discount of more than $1,000 per couple, we urge you to reserve your spot without delay.
