      OPTIONAL EXCURSION: Macon with Wine Museum tour
      With its pastel buildings and tiled roofs, Mâconnais has a Mediterranean
      charm. From Mâconnais we will tour the Beaujolais and Mâconnais wine
      regions. We will make our way through the vineyards which grace the
      area, as well as the castles and stately homes which bear witness to the
      wealth of the region. A highlight of this excursion is the visit to Georges
      Duboeuf’s Hameau du Vin. In the unique setting of a 19th-century railway
      station, you can marvel at the wine making process: the transporting of
      grapes and wine, the winemaker’s tools and trade, the cellars, the
      winemaking processes, bottling and corking. Finish the visit with a tasting
      of Beaujolais wines, in a room housing a barrel organ called a
      “bouteillophone”.
      OPTIONAL EXCURSION: Guided tour to Cluny Abbey
      The Abbey of Cluny in Burgundy was the center of a major monastic
      movement in the Middle Ages. Its church was the largest Christian
      building in the world until St. Peter’s Basilica was rebuilt in Rome in the
      16th century. Although most of the great Abbey of Cluny is in ruins, you
      can still see remnants showing the size and glory the abbey possessed at
      its zenith and imagine it as it once was. Today, one transept of the
      12th-century abbey church remains, along with the 15th-century abbots’
      residences and 18th-century convent buildings. The site also includes
      beautiful gardens and a museum with Romanesque artifacts. Your guide
      will show you around the ancient Benedictine abbey. This church, with its
      unusual dimensions, was completed under the abbacy of Pierre the
      Venerable and consecrated in 1130. Its principal architect was Hézelon de
      Liège. The idea for its construction is said to have originated from a monk’s
      dream.


    4. Day4

      Today you can continue to explore the famous wine region with a half day
      stop in Chalon sur Saone. Here you can find half-timbered houses that
      overlook the town square, local art galleries, specialty shops, and even a
      museum dedicated to photography. In the countryside you can find
      famous vineyards such as Pommard and Puligny, a true delight to wine
      lovers. After returning to the ship you will sail towards Tournus and enjoy
      a brief stop to soak in the scenic landscapes surrounded by medieval towns of Brancion and Cormatin which you can visit and tour if you
      choose to join the optional excursion.
      Overnight onboard
      OPTIONAL EXCURSION: Burgundy excursion to Beaune with
      wine tasting
      After breakfast, take a scenic drive along France’s Burgundy wine route
      through Pommard, Volnay and Meursault. In Beaune, the wine capital of
      Burgundy, you will enjoy a guided tour of the beautiful Hôtel-Dieu,
      founded as a hospice in 1443. Today, it covers a large area of the town
      with its museum, three courtyards, outbuildings, 15th-century bastion and
      hundreds of meters of cellars, which are notable for containing the
      personal reserve of the Hospices. The four buildings open to the public are
      situated around the Court of Honor and represent the Hôtel-Dieu of
      former times. The great Salle des Pauvres (”hall of the poor”), is decorated
      with multi-colored beams which are unique in the world. Serenity reigns
      here which will leave no one unmoved. The rooms overflow with
      treasures: statues, furniture, pottery, paintings, tapestries and more. The
      kitchen has been restored to look exactly as it did in the 19th century. The
      polyptych of “The Last Judgement”, a masterpiece by the Flemish painter
      Rogier Van Der Weyden, is particularly well presented. Later, enjoy a wine
      tasting experience at one of Beaune’s famous cellars.
      OPTIONAL EXCURSION: Excursion to Brancion and Cormatin
      We leave Chalon-sur-Saône and drive to Brançion for a short photo stop
      before continuing to the Castle of Cormatin. Behind its understated
      exterior lies inestimable splendor. The castle is undoubtedly one of the
      most sumptuous castles in Burgundy, and, in addition, it boasts a
      Renaissance garden. The sculpted yews break up the symmetry as you
      enter this moated château. The rich, colorful interior reflects the French
      and more particularly, the Parisian fashion during the reign of Louis XIII.
      Built between 1605 and 1629 by the du Blé family, it chronicles the history
      of the arts at this time in France. The formal Renaissance garden has the
      “fountain of life” at its center. Beyond this is a maze with a charming
      wrought-iron aviary. From the top of this you can get an overview of the
      park.


    5. Day5

      This morning you will wake up in Lyon, the third largest city in France that
      is at the confluence of the Rhone and Saone rivers. It is also a UNESCO
      World Heritage city that is well known for its cuisine and historical and
      architectura landmarks such as the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourviere
      and Old Lyon. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon onboard as the vessel sails
      through the picturesque countryside.
      Overnight onboard
      OPTIONAL EXCURSION: City tour of Lyon
      Lyon not only marks the meeting of the Saône and Rhône Rivers, but it is
      also the gastronomic capital of France. Its rich, ancient history includes
      Roman ruins and early Christian sites. The city tour begins with a coach
      trip to the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière. The well-known
      pilgrimage church stands on a hill, offering an unforgettable view of the
      city. After you’ve had a look around on your own and enjoyed a drive
      along the banks of the Sâone, with views of various sights including the
      Cathedral of St. John and the Palace of Justice, you will have the
      opportunity to explore Lyon’s Old Town. Take a gentle stroll through the
