|RHONE RIVER CRUISE|
Imagine floating down the scenic Rhone River, flowing through the legendary French Provence, once home to Celts, Greeks and Romans, and hundreds of years of European history. Picture yourself discovering this delicious region, wandering stress-free through grand palaces, cathedrals and narrow streets filled with patisseries and silk shops. Book one of our River Rhone cruises with the Barge Connection and make this dream a reality. On a Rhone cruise, you can enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes along the Rhone River in luxurious comfort. With our Rhone River cruises, you can explore hundreds of miles without the stress of packing and repacking, checking in and out of hotels, or spending hours chasing flights or juggling train schedules.

Relax in your luxurious state room, or lounge on the deck as the barge glides straight into the heart of historical towns along the way. It’s like taking the luxury hotel with you on a River Rhone Cruise.
A Rhone cruise is the perfect way to explore an intensely fascinating region of Europe. The Rhone River, one of the principal waterways of Europe, starts in the Swiss Alps, and travels more than 500 miles through Lake Geneva, tumbling through the Jura Mountains before the Rhone River cruises south through hundreds of miles of the history-laden Provence Region and the historic cities of Lyon, Avignon, Tarascon and Arles as it flows south, finally entering the Mediterranean. A River Rhone Cruise enables you to experience how the Rhone River shaped hundreds of years of history and culture, from Celtic and Roman times, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and countless power struggles and wars over religion and territory through the years.
Embark on one of our Rhone River Cruises, and you will be pampered like star.
