Best of France and Switzerland Cruise & Tour

This program is currently sold out but new dates are coming soon! Call 877-332-6185 for more details.


Discover the Best of France and Switzerland and combine it with an unforgettable river cruise on the Rhône and Saône rivers for a beautiful 2 week European vacation.

Start in Paris with a 2 nights stay, visit the famed Versailles Palace before heading into the wine region of Burgundy and visiting the beautiful historic cities of Dijon and Beaune. Visit a mustard museum before heading to the Rhône river for embarkation of the luxurious A-ROSA Stella, your home for the next 7 nights. Discover all the major ports on the Saône and the Rhône on your way to Avignon and back. Enjoy great food and wine and try for yourself some French “Laissez Faire” while the landscape passes by.

After 8 days aboard the Stella it will be time to say good bye to the crew and discover Switzerland; and it’s alpine beauty by land: be amazed by the mountain passes, glistening lakes and historic buildings. Perhaps take an optional train ride on the famed Golden Pass, before arriving in Zurich, from where you will bid farewell to this fantastic trip and newfound friends.

Note: The 2016 September departure starts in Zurich and ends in Paris.  All other inclusions remain the same.
