Artistic Impressions: Monte-Carlo to Paris

2014 Prices From $6,590 for 14 Days - Tauck Cruising

French painters have been an integral part of the art movement since the 17th century, wowing the world from the flighty spirit of Rococo to Impressionistic reveries of color and light. Discover the stories behind the art with our experts in studios, historic sites and world-famous museums as you journey from jet-setting Monte-Carlo to Provence on a leisurely art cruise aboard ms Swiss Emerald along the Rhône and Saône rivers, and on to Paris. Lectures and guided museum tours give you an insider's look at Chagall and Matisse in Nice, Cocteau in Menton, Cézanne in Aix-en-Provence, and the world's largest Monet collection at Paris' Marmottan Museum. Walk in the footsteps of van Gogh in Arles... explore Roman antiquities at Vienne’s Musées Gallo-Romains... check out the Musée des Beaux Arts in Dijon and Lyon. Tour an artist’s studio and choose visits to the Louvre or Musée de L'Orangerie in Paris, and sample regional cuisine and wine as ms Swiss Emerald glides through France's cultural heartland on an art cruise and tour that's second to none.
