May 23 - London (Southampton), England
Southampton is the largest city and port on the south coast of England. Tour the historic byways of Old Town with its Medieval walls and Tudor architecture. Spend an hour or two meandering along the pathways of Royal Victoria Country Park, picturesquely set along the waterfront on the grounds of a former military hospital where Florence Nightingale once worked. Southampton's maritime past can be explored by strolling along the Town Quay with its marina and lively bars and restaurants. It was here that the Titanic departed on its fateful journey and where the Mayflower sailed for the New World.
May 24 - St. Malo, France
8:30 AM to 7:45 PM
Explore this fascinating fortified town or discover the lovely medieval town of Dinan and its impressive clock tower and picturesque half-timbered houses. Drive along the rugged Brittany coast and savor the stunning view of mystical Mont St. Michel before wandering through its steep winding streets and the maze like abbey passages.
May 25 - St. Malo, France
9 AM to 7 PM
Explore the heart of this naval port, nestled in one of France’s most beautiful natural harbors. Named after the Iroise Sea, you can’t help but stand in awe for the Pont de l'Iroise bridge, which crosses the River Elorn. For another awe-inspiring experience visit Océanopolis, the only ocean discovery centre of its kind in Europe, with its enormous aquariums and a seal clinic. Visitors are welcomed to interact with some of the marine animals.
May 26 - Lorient, France
7 AM to 5 PM
Explore the historic, thriving fishing port of Lorient with colorful fishing boats and yachts coming and going. Visit the submarine base now home to a naval museum and authentic French Navy submarine. Then have a look at the Maison de l’Imprimeur, parts of which date back to the eighteenth century. Stroll over to Rue du Port and Rue de Liege for shopping. Look for handmade lace and linens, Quimpere pottery, and fleur de sel harvested nearby. Enjoy fresh Breton seafood and enjoy a glass of wine as you drink in the history of Lorient’s dynamic surroundings.
May 27 - Bordeaux (Le Verdon), France
6 AM to 9 AM
At the mouth of the Gironde Estuary is the port of Le Verdon—the gateway to Bordeaux, one of the premier wine regions in France. Fertile vineyards and low rising hills produce just the right ingredients for delectable wine offerings. The area boasts some of the finest bordeaux, cabernet sauvignon and merlot in the world. And even beyond the wine, the area has quite impressive museums, architecture, beaches and nightlife.
May 27 - Bordeaux, France (overnight)
Bordeaux is located near the European Atlantic coast, in the north of the Aquitaine region in France. The city is built on a bend of the river Garonne, with the city literally divided into two parts. The world's wine capital, Bordeaux has about 60 appellations, 9,000 wine-producing châteaux, and 13,000 grape growers. The medieval village of St-Emilion, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of Bordeaux’s most famous wine appellations and a short ride away. There you can visit a Grand Cru chateau for a wine tasting at some of the most famous vineyards.
May 28 - Bordeaux, France
Depart 1 PM
May 29 - Biarritz (Saint-Jean-De-Luz), France
8 AM to 11 PM
Tucked in France’s Côte Basque, Biarritz first came to prominence in the mid-19th century when Napoleon III built a summer palace here for his wife, Empress Eugenie. The oceanside palace is now the esteemed Hotel du Palais, a landmark for the dynamic, beach-rimmed Biarritz. Biarritz also has an urbane personality and museums dedicated to everything from Asian art to chocolate. Pedestrian-friendly Biarritz is lined with fashion boutiques and shops selling French cheeses, wine, porcelain dolls, and Basque tablecloths. Enjoy Basque-influenced cuisine such as veal stew, cured ham dishes, tapas and foie gras.
May 30 - Bilbao, Spain
7 AM to 11 PM
Bilbao straddles the Bilbao or Nervión River some 15 miles from the Cantabrian Seacoast. An industrial city, the metropolitan area ranks among Spain's most important commercial and financial centers. Proximity to the sea and early discovery of vast mineral deposits led to the development of the port. The modern city center is El Ensanche (literally "the expansion"). Possibly the newest source of great local pride is the remarkable Guggenheim Museum-Bilbao.
May 31- Gijon, Spain
8 AM to 6 PM
The beautiful beaches of Gijon are singular in their own right. Yet, for art lovers and historians, there is plenty to do in and around the city as well. Namely, there are several uniquely themed museums, including the Campo Valdés Roman Baths, considered one of the most important Roman remains in northern Spain. Visit the aquarium, the botanical gardens or simply stroll through the streets of Cimavilla, the oldest part of Gijon. Gijon offers several shopping districts and a Ecological and Crafts Market with environmentally friendly products.
