Scenic Sapphire, Avignon
One thing I can tell you about river cruising is that it’s a relaxing way to see the world.
There is just something magical about it. Onboard the luxurious Scenic spaceship, we were treated to the slow-moving landscapes of the South of France. Imagine drifting through the waterways with idyllic vineyards, picturesque castles and quaint villages lining the riverbanks.
Our trip from Burgundy to Lyon was a gastronomic utopia with some of the most famous vineyards and Michelin-starred restaurants on the planet! The tours I chose were mostly all wine- and food-related since I wanted to learn more about the food culture of France. Burgundy alone has 31 restaurants with Michelin star ratings, while Lyon has 167 of them! So do buy a copy of the Michelin Guide and use it to unearth great restaurants on your free time.
Scenic offers a more meaningful experiential way to travel. Our itinerary included Lyon for exposure to the Food Capital of France, the Burgundy region for wine tasting, the Paul Bocuse Institute for a lesson in French cuisine, and even Tournus for truffle hunting with the hounds!
