Rhone River - France

One of the major waterways of Europe, the Rhone flows southward through Switzerland and France to the Mediterranean Sea. Passing through the the vineyards of Burgundy and the hills of Provence, it boasts many ancient cities on its banks. River of It is 500 miles (810km) in length and rises at the Rhône Glacier in the canton of Valais in Switzerland and flows through Lake Geneva to Lyon in France, where, it meets the Saône and the upper limit of navigation is reached. The river then turns due south and passes Vienne, Tournon, Vivier, Chateauneuf du Pape and Avignon. Near Arles it divides into the Grand and Petit Rhône, flowing respectively southeast and southwest into the Mediterranean west of Marseille. Here it forms a two-armed delta; the area between the tributaries is the marshy region known as the Camargue. There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port.
