The Rhone is 500 miles length and flows through Lake Geneva to Lyon in France, where, it meets the Saône and the upper limit of navigation is reached. The river then turns due south and passes Vienne, Tournon, Vivier, Chateauneuf du Pape and Avignon. Near Arles it divides into the Grand and Petit Rhône, flowing respectively southeast and southwest into the Mediterranean west of Marseille.


Located between the Rhone and the Saone rivers in Southwest France, Lyon has a reputation as the ‘gastronomic capital of the world’. The cuisine in Lyon is exquisite as it is home to some of the best restaurants in the whole of France as well as many enticing bistros and cafes.


Avignon has one of the best preserved historic centres in France, famous for being the Vatican of the 14th Century. The striking spires of the Palais des Papes pierce the skyline and entice holiday makers to this beautiful city. Lining the cobbled streets of Avignon are richly decorated buildings, spectacular monuments and stunning parks.
