Serving up a wealth of experiences that include Impressionist inspiration and masterpieces, traditional fishing villages keeping time-honoured traditions alive, bountiful seafood, unusual wildlife...the list just goes on and on! So, find out for yourself exactly what a cruise through this multifaceted destination has to offer, and prepare to be more than pleasantly surprised.
