On a guided tour of historical Avignon, see the 14th-century Palace of the Popes.

The twin cities of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage are beautifully nestled among vineyards and you’ll go on a guided walk of Tournon, a medieval treasure.

Your guided French vacation via river cruise on the Rhône and Saône Rivers, and your Monograms vacation package in Italy are the perfect mix of the world’s favorite destinations, made easy to enjoy each step of the way.

Combine Cruise with a Monograms Vacation

Monograms is independent travel without the hassles that typically come with "ordinary" independent travel. With Monograms, you never have to worry about whether or not your hotel will have your reservation, how to get from here to there, or where to go once you get to your destination—it's the perfect addition to your Avalon river cruise! Avalon makes it easy to add a Monograms London, Paris & London, Aix-en-Provence & Nice, Barcelona or Zürich with Mount Pilatus & Lake Como package to your river cruise.
