  • San Sebastian
    San Sebastian

    The Kursaal Convention Center’s glowing cubes and Basque Culinary Center’s elongated terraces have become symbols of contemporary San Sebastian, but traditional Belle Époch and Baroque were certainly never abandoned. Begin your San Sebastian journey in the atmospheric Old City – the capital of Pais Vasco’s Gipuzkoa Province, it is a vibrant center of Basque culture and history. The French frontier is just a few kilometers down the road, and perhaps San Sebastian shares more with Biarritz and Bayonne than it does with Madrid.

Boasting a lively ambience, atmospheric Old Town, and dynamic cultural scene, Vigo is the perfect seaside town, best explored by foot or bike. With its strategic location in the northwest corner of Spain, Vigo was constantly fought over during the many periods of war between Spain, Britain, and France.

On March 1, 1493, the Pinta, one of the ships from Columbus’ voyage to discover the New World, returned to Europe and arrived in Baiona, making the town’s port the first to receive news of the discovery of America. A replica of the ship can be visited, and the event is celebrated every year.

  • Porto
    Porto

    Straddling the mouth of the Douro River, the splendid city of Oporto holds such architectural importance that the entire historic center has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. A great place to begin your exploration is Praça da Liberdade, a lengthy public esplanade lined with graceful 19th-century buildings. You’ll find the city has no shortage of marvelous churches, from the imposingly fortified Porto Cathedral to the graciously appointed Clérigos Church, whose soaring bell tower offers panoramic vistas over the city’s picturesque red-tile roofs. In the 1906 Lello Bookstore, prepare to be swept away by elaborate art nouveau features including a sinuous double staircase and a luminous stained-glass skylight. But what’s a visit to Oporto without sampling its signature export, the fortified wine that shares the city’s name. Tour one of the illustrious cellars dotting the Douro’s southern bank, where port is crafted just as it has been for centuries, and savor exquisite samples of the sweet libation. When evening comes, take advantage of Oporto’s reputation as the best place to eat in Portugal, perhaps choosing among the delectable cod dishes for which the city is renowned.

  • Saint-Jean-de-Luz - Basque Countryside Village & Chocolate House

    Description

    Take a journey to exercise your taste buds with exquisite chocolate from the Basque country. Chocolate was first introduced to France in Bayonne 400 years ago. Chocolate making in Bayonne dates back to the early 17th century when Jews fleeing the inquisition settled in the Saint Esprit area on the right bank of the Adour River.

    Using the recipe for chocolate brought back from their travels to the Americas, they became the first in France to transform cocoa beans. The town’s chocolate makers soon became known for the quality of their ingredients and precise blending and their fabulous chocolates continue to uphold Bayonne’s reputation today.

    Start the journey by driving to Espelette village, famous for its red peppers. This charming village, situated in the center of the Basque countryside and mountains, is also home to the Antton Chocolate house, nestled in a traditional red-timbered house. At the Chocolate House your guide will reveal the history of chocolate and invite you into the factory workshop – where your senses will be awakened. Discover Antton’s most famous specialties: the Espelette chilli pepper chocolate and the black cherry chocolate. You will have the opportunity to taste some of these fine chocolate before re-boarding your coach for a drive back to ship.

  • Saint-Jean-de-Luz - Fashionable Biarritz & The Basque Coast

    Description

    Saint-Jean-de-Luz, a small fishing village on the Basque coast is known for its architecture, sandy bay, the quality of the light and the cuisine.This beautiful south-west corner of France became renowned in the mid-1800's when Empress Eugenie, the wife of the emperor Napoleon III, built a palace on the beach at Biarritz. (now the HU´tel du Palais). European royalty such as Queen Victoria, Edward VII, and Alfonso XIII of Spain were frequent visitors.
    Our tour starts with a guided walking tour of Saint-Jean-de-Luz through the historic town and visiting the St Jean Baptiste church. Our coach will then take us the 10 miles up the coast to Biarritz, the "Queen of resorts and the resort of Kings" including the lighthouse, located on the northern tip of the town with its panoramic view followed by the "Grande Plage", the main beach in town, where surfers from all over the world come to ride the waves. The Hotel du Palais with its facade overhanging the beach, revives the idle and frivolous period of the 20's.
    Built in 1855, as a summer house for the Imperial couple, the building owes its E shape to the name of the Empress Eugenie.

    Our next stop is the cozy fishing port nested in the rocks. After the fishing port, it's off to the Rock of the Virgin, which is reached by an imposing bridge which was constructed by Gustave Eiffel, the same architect who, of course, designed the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris. We conclude our oceanfront tour of Biarritz with the ancient whaling port, whaling having been an integral part of the history of the town, where we will have some free time to browse. We return to St.-Jean-de-Luz through Bidart and Guethary, typical villages with their "fronton" where the basques play the "pelota", their traditional sport.
