Setting sail from Lyon

Situated at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers, Lyon is one of France's most appealing cities. Its reputation for gastronomic excellence is well deserved, with hundred of wonderful restaurants, from lavish Michelin-starred affairs to family-run joints tucked away down a back alley. What's more, the UNESCO listed historic centre boasts a marvellous ensemble of Renaissance-era buildings, best appreciated from the top of the soaring Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière.

Our tip

Getting around by public transport is great, with TGVs, trains, trams, trolleybuses, and a tube network which includes two funicular railways.

Arriving in Arles

The charming little town of Arles sits at the head of the Rhône delta, on the northern fringe of the sprawling marshlands of the Camargue. It's a town with a long history, as evidenced by an impressive array of Roman ruins, and though the gladiators may be long gone the 20,000 seater amphitheatre still plays host to the bloody and controversial spectacle of the corrida (bullfight). Whether or not you approve of all the local traditions, Arles is a great place to sample the essence of Provençal culture, and we particularly recommend the vibrant Saturday market.

Don't miss

Visit the Fondation Vincent van Gogh for its great exhibitions.
