French countryside surprises ... and Barcelona!

This is the last leg of Catriona Rowntree's journey with Scenic Tours. On board the five star Scenic Emerald, passengers have been treated to luxury on board and on land.

It all began in Paris, followed by cruising down the Rhône River and visiting charming villages along the way. They visited the Burgundy region and Provence. Each place had something unique to offer.

Heading further south to the Camargue was bitter-sweet. It was all about to end, but there were still some surprises in store.

Arles is a favourite tourist destination in Provence and if its winding streets, stone squares and colourful houses baking in the sun seem familiar, it's probably because they feature in Vincent Van Gogh’s prolific outpouring of art.
