Rhône River

Southern France’s crown jewel, the Rhone River, flows through wine region with a sense of leisure that puts the soul at ease. Relaxation goes hand in hand with exploration as you walk the streets of Lyon, shop the markets of Avignon, and visit the sites of the Roman Empire in Arles. Time slows just enough in the region for one to simply stop and smell the lavender.
