Your Itinerary

    1Paris to Auxerre
    You’ll be picked up in Paris at 2:30 by your chauffeur, who will take you the Quai in Auxerre where the Luciole is moored. A champagne welcome will greet you onboard, and you’ll be introduced to the crew who will accompany you. Spend some time on deck, taking in the view of Auxerre at sunset. During dinner, introduce yourself to your fellow passengers – you’ll be fast friends on this great adventure!

    2Auxerre to Vincelles
    Leave the city for pastoral France. You can walk or bike the towpath, casually ‘racing’ your floating hotel. Chances are good that you’ll win. In the afternoon, our barge will cruise towards the wine-making center of Chablis. Your tour guide will introduce you to viticulturists who grow the grapes for this world-renowned white wine (with samples!).

    3Vincelles to Accolay
    Today you'll explore the city of Auxerre on the banks of the River Yonne. This town was first settled by the Romans - the amazing history that you can see and hear and touch! Stroll the cobblestoned streets, surrounded by intact Medieval buildings, boutiques, and cafes.

    4Accolay to Mailly-le-Chateau
    Noyers-sur-Serein, a 15th century medieval market village, is considered one of the top 100 prettiest villages in France. Practice your French by ordering a coffee at a small cafe!

    5Mailly-le-Chateau to Lucy-sur-Yonne
    Get your cameras ready, we’re heading towards dramatic cliffs along the waters’ edge. Sit on the deck and enjoy the scenery! You could visit the town of Mailly-le-Chateau, or visit the imposing chateau of Bazoches.

    6Lucy-sur-Yonne to Clamecy
    Make the short journey by bus to Vezelay, home to a 12th century Basilica. Cruising onward, Luciole will moor in the medieval Clamecy, where we’ll enjoy our final evening together.

    7Clamecy to Paris
    You’ll be chauffeured back to Paris. Estimated arrival time is 1pm. From there, will you return home, or perhaps lengthen your vacation with a stay in Paris? Talk to your USA River Cruise agent about ideas of what to do next!
