Andante Travels adds Rhône archeological cruise

The sailing includes excursions with an expert guide

Special interest tour operator Andante Travels has added an archeology and heritage-focused Rhône river itinerary to its cruise portfolio.

The nine-day sailings on MS Camargue will depart in April and September, taking guests to key cultural and archeological sites along the river. It includes visits to the amphitheatre and archaeological museum at Arles, the ancient Roman aqueduct bridge Pont du Gard, the triumphal arch and mausoleum at Glanum and the Palais des Papes in Avignon.

Exclusive excursions will be led by expert guide lecturer John Shepherd, who is a specialist in Roman provincial archaeology and worked at the Museum of London for more than 20 years. 

Guests will enjoy a visit to the prehistoric site of Roche de Solutré with Shepherd, alongside a tour of the Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon-Fourvière and a privately organised wine-tasting in the renowned wine-producing area of Tain L’Hermitage.

Andante Travels’ other archaeological cruises include its 17-day Cruising the Nile sailing, the 8-day Moorish Wonders of the Guadalquivir & Guadiana and its 9-day Antiquity of the Aegean itinerary.
