Saone River

Spend time in France's delightful Burgundy region on a Saone River cruise. These sailings often are combined with cruises of the Rhone River, which flows through Provence to the south.

Most cruises stop at Macon, where the sixth-century Old St. Vincent Cathedral is an enduring symbol of the city. Top sights in Tournus include the fortresslike Abbey of St. Philibert, parts of which date to the 10th century, and the Burgundian Museum, which was founded in 1929 and houses traditional costumes, furniture and vineyard tools culled from rural homes in the region.

In Beaune, considered Burgundy's wine capital, guests often have an opportunity to attend a wine-tasting and also tour the Hospices de Beaune, a 15th-century former charity hospital that sports a colorful roof of glazed tiles. Lyon is located where the Saone meets the Rhone; here you can see Roman ruins and Renaissance architecture and sample the cuisine that helped make this city the leading gastronomic center of France.

Our cruises are easy to budget because so much is included in one price that you pay up front -- a river-view stateroom, sightseeing tours with experienced guides, onboard meals and enrichment and entertainment programs. These cruises offer a relaxing, convenient way to travel, too, as you unpack once and enjoy the comforts of your cabin for the duration of the trip.
