Absorb Burgundy’s Charm with Odysseys Unlimited

Starting in Lyon and finishing in Paris, the 12-day small group itinerary includes a six-night journey plying the waters of the ancient Rhone-Rhine and Burgundy canals, once reserved only for royalty. Guests visit medieval, untouristed villages and historic towns including Beaune, Dole, Petit-Ouges and the Burgundy wine region’s capital, Dijon.

Gliding from one pastoral village to another at the leisurely pace of about four miles per hour, guests aboard the privately-chartered 20-passenger MS Jeanine have the option to lounge on deck while sipping French wine (unlimited wine included) or walk or cycle the towpaths that run alongside the canals.

The small group tour also includes the quintessential Burgundy experience, a wine tasting tour along the famed Route des Grand Crus. Bookending this leisurely sojourn: sightseeing and free time in both Lyon and Paris.
