After your stay in Paris, take a high-speed train from Paris to Luxembourg City to board your Avalon Suite Ship® in Remich on the beautiful Moselle River.

Continue through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—considered the most beautiful view of the Rhine River—and see the rock of the Lorelei and ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Stop in Rüdesheim, a quintessential Rhine Valley wine town, before proceeding into the Main River.
