Take a cruise to the popular port town of Avignon where the Durance and Rhone River join forces, located south of Lyon and in between Montpellier and Marseille in France. Take a tour through the historical Palais des Papes a beautiful historical French Palace or the Musee du Petit Palais a history museum focused on palaces. Check out the Pont Saint-Benzet (Pont d'Avignon) old bridge or the historical museum of Musee Calvet. Between 1309-1377 Avignon was the seat for Catholic Popes, which means there are beautiful religious artifacts and ruins throughout the town including the Church of Saint-Agricol, the Avignon Cathedral, and Basilique Saint Pierre. Consider cruising the Rhone River on a small ship cruise in order to be able to access smaller ports, beaches, and locks.
