The Rhône, France and Switzerland
Wine lovers will particularly enjoy a cruise along this European river, which passes through Burgundy and Provence, taking in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône vineyards, along with Lyon, which is widely regarded as the gourmet capital of France. History buffs will love exploring the Roman ruins at Arles while budding artists might well find inspiration in the countryside they pass through: the sunflowers and fields of lavender which grow on the banks of this river inspired artists such as Vincent Van Gogh.
