French Waterways

2015 Prices From $4,890 for 10 Days - Tauck Cruising

When it comes to France cruises, it’s hard to imagine a more enjoyable one than gliding along the Rhône through the vineyard country from which come some of the world’s most exceptional wines. But first... meet us on the Champs Élysées for a welcome dinner at a Parisian brasserie long known as a celebrity hangout... walk through a city neighborhood called “Le Marais,” where stylish galleries and peaceful squares line twisting streets that have witnessed the marks of history... travel to Lyon, where eating well is a time-honored tradition. Set off on your Rhône River cruise through one of the first wine-producing regions on Earth, stopping to explore villages along its banks; here ancient roots meet contemporary charm. See a 14th-century palace designed for papal splendor... ochre cliffs, Roman ruins, a medieval abbey, a game of pétanque... and a Roman aqueduct’s design that remains a lasting beauty. En route, taste an aged Beaujolais, a Côtes du Rhône direct from the source, world-renowned chocolates, and superb cheeses.
