Joseph follows the Rhone River on it's 500-mile journey through France to the Mediterranean sea and rides this watery highway to experiences that embrace the grandeurs of the past and the glories of a moment. From the ancient ruins of Vienne to the monumental masterpieces of Avignon, from Lyon's cityscape to Van Gogh's sanctuary in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and his Starry nights in Arles, Joseph discovers a wealth of historic, natural and cultural riches. He visits the bustling market of Uzès, walks...

The region offers him a never-ending banquet of pleasures and it becomes evident why the French particularly cherish, celebrate, protect and preserve this fabled land. Vive la France!
