The Trip

Join Carleton’s Dana and Stephen Strand on this nine-day French sojourn in world-famous Provence and the wine regions of Burgundy and Beaujolais during springtime, the best time of year to visit. Cruise from historic Lyon along the fabled Rhône and Saône Rivers aboard the Amadeus Provence. Enjoy an excursion to the Beaujolais vineyards for a private wine tasting and fortepiano performance at the Château de Montmelas, and a walking tour of Lyon, France’s gastronomique gateway. Dock in the heart of port towns and visit the legendary Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune, the Roman city of Orange, the medieval Papal Palace of Avignon, and the wonderfully-preserved Roman amphitheater in Arles. Marvel at the UNESCO-inscribed Pont du Gard, an exquisite 2,000-year-old aqueduct, and classical antiquities of Vienne. Experience a specially-arranged wine and chocolate tasting with a well-known French oenologist in Vienne. The carefully-designed Pre‑Program Option features cosmopolitan Geneva, Switzerland, and the beautiful towns of Gruyeres and Montreux, Switzerland.
