CroisiEurope will run a new culinary cruise on the Rhone in April 2019.

The seven-night sailing onboard the MS Rhone Princess, round trip from Lyon, will visit Arles, Avignon, Viviers and Tain L’Hermitage.

It also includes an exclusive dinner at Abbaye de Collonges, a Paul Bocuse restaurant situated on the banks of the Saone.

Highlights include a guided tour of the Cité du Chocolat in Tain L’Hermitage and a tasting of local specialities at the covered market of Les Halles de Lyon.

CroisiEurope will run weekly departures between April and October, with cruise-only prices starting from £1,089pp for the seven-day cruise.

The price includes all meals and drinks onboard, plus excursions.

There is a charge for dinner at Abbaye de Collonges, although bookings made before 1 December will receive this free of charge.
