10 NIGHT WINE & CULTURE VOYAGE

Muse on voyages past as you sail out of Southampton, long a maritime center, its yards turning out warships for king and country from the Hundred Years War in the 14-15th centuries, to two world wars in the 20th.  After a relaxing day at sea we come to an overnight Bordeaux, for two days of education about wine production in this handsome and cohesive city filled with monumental buildings and fine estates.

A late night in one of France’s most picturesque beach retreats, St. Jean de Luz is next, followed by another late night in Bilbao, located in the heart of Basque Country and perfect for a day spent sightseeing highlighted by the Guggenheim Museum.

After a stop in Gijon for a trip along the Cider Trail, we arrive in La Coruna, or The Glass City, where the Roman Tower of Hercules, a UNESCO World Heritage Site designated stone lighthouse is a must-visit. 

We arrive next in Porto, a European capital of culture where you can stroll the Ribeira neighborhood before your voyage wraps up in Lisbon, the colorful, historic heart of Portugal. Here you’ll be delighted by the cobblestoned streets, hilly neighborhoods, and warm welcomes everywhere you go. Stay after you disembark to check out the venerable São Jorge Castle, or roam the winding alleys of the Alfama district lined with taverns where fado singers perform.
