Hosted by AmaWaterways and Barry & Kim Wiss, Trinchero Family Estates & Antica Napa Valley


From the magic of Barcelona to the romance of Paris, this wine cruise itinerary is one of AmaWaterways's most captivating. Begin with three nights in Barcelona (optional), then transfer to Arles, stopping to visit medieval Perpignan along the way. Overnight aboard your luxurious vessel in Arles, the city where Vincent Van Gogh lived near the end of his life. From Arles, cruise to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Avignon, where a wine tasting excursion takes you to the renowned Châteanueuf-du-Pape. Continue to Viviers and Tournon, where you will sample L’Hermitage wine and also enjoy a chocolate tasting. In Vienne, you will have a walking tour before cruising to Lyon, followed by a winery visit and tasting the next day. Your Rhone wine cruise comes to an end in Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France. Enjoy a champagne tasting before embarking on a high-speed TGV train to Paris (optional) for your post-cruise program.
