Along Europe's Scenic "Yellow Roads"

Some of them first came to the south of France at the invitation of innkeepers, wise men all, who asked artists like Matisse, Chagall and Picasso to spend the weekend as their guest and leave behind a painting or sculpture in exchange for a good meal and bed. Many, like Cézanne and Vincent van Gogh, stayed on, leaving a legacy of painted memories that forever illuminate places like Nice, Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Aix and St-Rémy-de-Provence...

Thankfully for us, much of their work is available to us in museums from Provence to Paris to destinations the world over, where moments in time are immortalized, landscapes are honored for eternity and a week filled with culturally rich discoveries and artful treasures lingers long after you return home... For one week, savor the bounty of Provençal life at tastings in wineries and olive orchards alive with local flavor... in architectural icons inspired by Romans, poets and popes... and in joie de vivre of Paris, aglow with glamour, past and present. Begin in delightful Nice; explore glittering Monte-Carlo, historic Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, and see firsthand what inspired van Gogh in St-Rémy. Enjoy an adventurous walk on the Pont du Gard; a locally guided visit inside Avignon's fortress-like Palais des Papes; and a high-speed rail journey to Paris for a three-night stay highlighted by a guided tour of Musée du Louvre and more in the storied French capital.

After-hours at the Louvre

Guided visit to Musée du Louvre

The world's most visited museum, the Musée du Louvre houses 35,000 works of art, dating from prehistoric days to contemporary times. Eight million people flock here each year excited to see masterpieces like Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, a resident since 1797; the Winged Victory, dating to 190 BC; the Greek goddess Venus de Milo; and other priceless paintings and sculptures too numerous to list. Now, imagine viewing those treasures with a guide who shares insights and stories...

Ducasse sur Seine Lunch Cruise

Parisian delights aboard Ducasse sur Seine

You'll set off along the River Seine with hardly a sound or a vibration to disturb your cruise or your unforgettable meal, as you glide past the landmarks of Paris for lunch aboard the French capital's first 100%-electric floating restaurant, Ducasse sur Seine. World-famous chef Alain Ducasse has created a menu that is in perfect unison with the journey; as the beauty of the city becomes a feast for the eyes, so the soul of Parisian cuisine comes to life on the plate. The service onboard is choreographed as in the finest restaurant, respecting the rhythm of each table – fluid and discreet, with nothing left to chance… truly an experience like no other.

Culinary experience with an Avignon chef

Avignon chef's dinner, wine tasting & cooking demonstration

In the medieval walled town of Avignon, past and present meet in a parade of sensory delights. On a culinary experience you won't soon forget, visit a historic local Avignon hotel restaurant and cooking school just steps from the Palais des Papes for a chef's dinner that includes a memorable gourmet meal, a wine tasting and a cooking demonstration in which you might pick up some of the chef's treasured secrets.

The food was out of this world, the events were wonderful, the lodging couldn't have been better. Loved it all. It was a dream vacation!

A vacation that was filled with unforgettable sights, tastes and experiences. Meeting likeminded tour group people who became “friends”. All of our concerns related to travel abroad were eliminated by Tauck. Feeling guided and secure, we moved about from Nice, Cannes, Provence and Paris. It was a lifelong dream come true!

Most Memorable Moment:

Running through the streets of Avignon during a sudden torrential rain storm with 7 other Tauck “friends” and laughing at how drenched we were—and enjoying it!

This, our 4th trip from Tauck, was a trip from hell for our family of five. Our luggage never made it out of CDG; 15 days later, we still do not have it. Our tour director tried to be helpful but there was no support from the Tauck organization nor Air France. A major disappointment for our family. Not up to Tauck standards.

Most Memorable Moment:

Each day finding out that our luggage had not arrived. Spoiled the whole trip. Now we have to deal with insurance claims.
