"If you're dreaming of a France river cruise, look no further than Tauck's 14-day French Escapade."
Journey from Paris to Monte Carlo on the rivers Rhône and Saône, visiting Lyon, Provence and Nice on the way.
After two nights in the capital city of Paris – where you'll dine at chic Fouquet's on the Champs-Élysées – explore the countryside along rivers that meander past vineyards where some of the world’s best grapes become some of the world’s best wines, stopping for tastings. Discover river towns with Roman roots and lingering traces of medieval magic in their streets, experience the cowboy traditions and cuisine of La Camargue, and time travel in Avignon. Explore a palace fit for a pope and an abbey that was once one of the most powerful in Europe. You'll find something new, something wonderful every day. And then there are two nights in glittering Monte Carlo to look forward to at the end of this France river cruise.
