Explore France by River with CroisiEurope

The best of France is revealed just outside the comfort of your cabin, thanks to CroisiEurope (External link).

The best trips are like beautiful dreams—a montage of gorgeous places, incredible experiences, and (if you're like us) unbelievable meals. In this way, CroisiEurope cruises are something of a dream come true.

The Bordeaux Wine Country cruise glides on the Garonne and Gironde rivers, through the lushness of Dordogne and Beaux-Arts finery of Bordeaux. Naturally, there are plenty of opportunities to sample some of the world's best wines, but there are also family-friendly excursions, like "Biking along the Garonne."

Sailing down the Loire, the cruise features the stately magic of Chambord and the delicate beauty of Chenonceau, among countless other châteaux sprinkled along the river.

Then, of course, there is Paris. The City of Lights glitters from the Trocadéro (in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower) to the bohemian beauty of Montmartre (crowned with the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur). The Louvre, the Palais Garnier, the utterly chic Canal Saint Martin are also just a sail away, with stops in medieval Troyes ("The City Of A Thousand Colors") and Champagne as you travel down the Seine.
