French Escapade: Paris to Monte-Carlo - Southbound

2015 Prices From $6,690 for 14 Days - Tauck Cruising

If you’re dreaming of a France river cruise, come along with us on our 14-day French Escapade: Paris to Monte-Carlo on the rivers Rhône and Saône… and visit Paris, Provence and Monte-Carlo as well. 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!

The Tauck Difference

My wife and I took the last river cruise of the year. Every aspect was organized and handled efficiently. The Tauck Cruise Director and Tauck Directors were the most professional travel directors we have ever experienced. No one could surpass the professionalism, knowledge, diligence and interest of these four individuals.
