      Highlights of Cordoba

      10 Jun Seville, Spain
      Full Day Extensive WalkingLunch IncludedCobbled Streets

      In its history, Cordoba has been both a capital of a Roman province and capital of the Arab state of Al-Andalus. A great cultural reference point in Europe, this ancient city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains a mixture of wonderful buildings, monuments and artefacts that are a reminder of the cultures that have settled it throughout history. It has been estimated that in the 10th century Cordoba was the most populous city in the world, and today it is a moderately sized city with a population of about 330,000.

      The historic quarter of Cordoba is a beautiful network of small streets, alleys, squares and whitewashed courtyards arranged around the Mezquita, which reflects the city's prominent place in the Islamic world during medieval times. You will visit the most famous and inspiring monuments of the city, including the Roman Bridge and the famous Great Mosque, a building that was considered a wonder of the medieval world by both Muslims and Christians. The building is most notable for its giant arches with over 1,000 columns of jasper, onyx, marble and granite. These were made from pieces of the Roman temple that had occupied the site previously. When Cordoba was re-conquered from the Moors in 1236 by King Ferdinand III of Castile, the mosque became a Catholic church.

      Another highlight is the old Jewish quarter. You will have the opportunity to visit the ancient market, now transformed to artisan market, and walk through the well known “Calle de las Flores” or “street of flowers”, a beautiful example of a typical Andalusian street decorated with plants and flowers. Before heading to lunch, you will have some time at leisure to explore the city independently.

Belem is also where the most famous Lisbon’s landmarks are located including the Belem Tower, the Discoveries Monument and the Monastery of Jeronimos. Belem’s undisputed heart-stealer is this UNESCO-listed monastery. The mosteiro was commissioned by Manuel I to trumpet Vasco da Gama’s discovery of a sea route to India in 1498 and the great explorer is interred in the church here.

      Then take a scenic drive from Belem to the city centre passing by the Alfama Quarter, Baixa (Downtown), Restauradores, and the fancy Avenida da Liberdade with its highend shops. Stop at Alto do Parque to admire Lisbon from the north and from here you have an astonishing view to the banks of the River Tagus.

      Afterwards stop at Rossio Square where you can enjoy some free time. Praca do Rossio, or the Rossio Square, is one of the most beautiful places to see in Lisbon. The square, which is located in downtown Lisbon, has been a witness to various historical events in the city, from popular celebrations and revolutions to executions and bullfights. Today, Praca do Rossio is a popular destination both for locals and tourists. Every day, people from different places flock to the square to relax, hang out, and just take in the atmosphere.

      This panoramic tour begins in the city of Queluz, with the magnificent 18th-century Queluz National Palace, one of the last great Rococo buildings to be designed in Europe and the former seat of the Portuguese royal family. Frequently compared with Versailles, Queluz is actually earlier in date than the French masterpiece.

Frequently compared with Versailles, Queluz is actually earlier in date than the French masterpiece.

      From here, we will proceed to Sintra, one of the most famous places in Portugal, built against the northern slope of the "Serra de Sintra" mountains. This small village is well known for its charming narrow roads and lush greenery, where climbing flowers and semi-tropical vine-like plants trail from mossy walls and balconies. Noble houses and palaces with walled gardens and stately courtyards are scattered throughout the forested hills, revelling in the soft, cool microclimate that the mountain position brings to the town.

      After a leisurely exploration, we will then enjoy a scenic drive through Guincho on our way to the picturesque fishing village of Cascais, where there will be some free time to relax before returning to Lisbon. Having been a holiday resort for well over a century, Cascais possesses a certain illustriousness that younger resorts lack. With a history that is most clearly visible in the villas dotted along the coast, the resort was built by wealthy “Lisboetas” as summer residences in the late 19th-century after King Luis I moved his summer activities to the nearby 17th-century fortress.

      Historically, Oporto is no doubt one of the most important cities in Portugal. The town centre dates mainly from the 18th century, when trade was booming and merchants embellished the city with large squares and avenues that made a big contrast with the narrow little streets of the old medieval quarters, and all around you can see the façades of elegant homes and palaces that show how prosperous they were in days gone by.

      Our first stop is the Romanesque-style Cathedral, built in the 12th century and extensively rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries. You’ll be able to admire the interior and see the altar dating from the baroque period.

      Next you’ll visit the Stock Exchange Palace, built in the 19th century to impress European investors. The surprising Moorish decorated rooms are nowadays used by the Chamber of Commerce, the President and members of the government for official receptions. You’ll cross the Douro River by way of the unique double-decker Dom Luis Bridge to Gaia to visit a well-known wine cellar for a tasting of the port wine.

Vigo was where the Roman Empire met the ocean and, in the 19th century, it became the main transatlantic departure point for a nation.

      Leave Vigo by road for Santiago de Compostela one of the most important places in Catholicism, because it is reputed to be the place where St James, one of the twelve Apostles of Christ, is buried.

      On arrival, enjoy a guided tour of Obradoiro Square. Named after the workmen who built the Cathedral, this square sits in front of the main entrance of the Cathedral on its northern façade.

      Facing the Cathedral is the Palacio de Rajoy that was built in the eighteenth century to house the choirboys and a seminary for priests. It was later used as a prison and is now the Town Hall. Facing the Cathedral is the Hostal dos Reis Catolicos that was built as a hospital for pilgrims during the reign of the Catholic kings in the XV century and today is one of the most beautiful buildings combining different styles such as Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque.

      The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is the reputed burial-place of Saint James, one of the apostles of Jesus Christ, and it has been a place of pilgrimage on the Way of St James since the early Middle Ages. What we see today is actually the fourth church to stand on this spot. The lavish baroque façade facing Praza do Obradoiro was erected in the 18th century, replacing the weather-damaged Romanesque one. This is the cathedral's main entrance, but owing to repair work on the towers and interior, it's likely to be closed until about 2021. In the meantime, most people enter through the south door on Praza das Praterias.

      A stop will then be made at the 19th-century Galician country manor of Pazo Los Escudos. Now a 5-star exclusive hotel, the manor houses a fabulous collection of family coats of arms of Galicia, dating between the 15th and 19th-centuries. Then sit back and enjoy a selection of typical Spanish tapas, with wine and other refreshments, and marvel at the magnificent vistas.

      Then on to L’Esplanade des Quinconces.

Stop at the Palais Rohan, the 18th-century former home of the Archbishop that is now the City Hall and walk to the 13th-century Cathedral of St Andrew, where Eleanor of Aquitaine married Louis VII, for an inside visit. Continue to the nearby the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux which was built by the architect Victor Louis and inaugurated in 1780. This is one of the most beautiful theatres in Europe and a pure work of art from the 18th century.

      Strolling through the Old Bordeaux area, you will come across beautiful squares such as La Place du Parlement, the former royal marketplace (1760) with its harmonious façades and fountain, and Place de la Bourse, the former royal square dedicated to Louis XV (1729).

      For many years Bordeaux was known as “La Belle au Bois Dormant” (Sleeping Beauty) due to its magnificent buildings being shrouded in centuries of black soot. Then in 2000, the mayor, former Prime Minister Alain Juppé, roused Bordeaux, restoring its neoclassical architecture and implementing a high-tech public transport system.

      For many years Bordeaux was known as “La Belle au Bois Dormant” (Sleeping Beauty) due to its magnificent buildings being shrouded in centuries of black soot. Then in 2000, the mayor, former Prime Minister Alain Juppé, roused Bordeaux, restoring its neoclassical architecture and implementing a high-tech public transport system. His efforts paid off: in mid-2007 half of the entire city (18 sq km, from the outer boulevards to the banks of the Garonne) was UNESCOlisted, making it the largest urban World Heritage Site.

      After a panoramic tour of the main sites including the 13th-century cathedral, the Palais Rohan and the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux, you will leave the city for the nearby world-famous vineyards that surround Bordeaux.

      The history of Bordeaux wine spans almost 2,000 years to Roman times when the first vineyards were planted. In the Middle Ages, the marriage of Henry Plantagenet and Eleanor of Aquitaine opened the Bordeaux region to the English market and eventually to the world's stage. Today, Bordeaux wine remains the world’s most popular and sought-after wine. You will stop at one of the prestigious wine estates such as Chateau La Louvière, Chateau Haut Bailly, Chateau Carbonnieux or Chateau Latour-Martillac to visit their cellars, be introduced to the art of wine making and, of course, to enjoy a wine tasting.

      Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. This is a very special place that combines world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments.

      A local legend says that the village was founded by a monk from Brittany who fled from his hometown of Vannes to seek refuge in one of the natural caves in the 8th century. His name was Emilion and for many years, he lived as a hermit. He is said to have performed a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and beyond. Soon he had many disciples and with their help, he made the town a religious centre.

      Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and named the town after him: Saint-Emilion. In 1999, the vineyards of Saint-Emilion became the first winery in the world to be given World Heritage status by UNESCO.

On arrival at the Eden Project, near St Austell, you will have approximately three hours to visit this dramatic global garden at your leisure.

      The Eden Project opened in April 2001 and is the world's largest global garden. The effect is breathtaking: a cultural melting pot of global plants, both wild and cultivated, are housed in a glass dome large enough to fully enclose the Tower of London in its 60 meter deep crater. The Garden of Eden contains plants and trees ranging from the Amazon to West Africa to Malaysia and is the only one of its kind anywhere in the world.

      As well as the outdoor landscape, there is a chance to visit the biomes – giant conservatories with cathedral-like qualities. The Humid Tropics Biome allows you to experience the sights, smells, and sheer scale of the rainforest in the world’s largest conservatory, whilst the Warm Temperate Biome showcases the world from the Mediterranean to South Africa and California, demonstrating how the plants thrive on drought and poor thin soils. Learn about the inter-relationship between men and plants throughout history and marvel at the interesting displays and retail outlets. Following a day indulging the senses re-board your motorcoach for the journey back to the pier.

      Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims over the ages who have looked out over the rocky ledge on the western side of the island. It was here, according to legend, a vision of the Archangel St Michael appeared to some fishermen in the year 495. Following the Norman Conquest in 1066, the invaders were struck by the similarity of the mount to their own Mont St Michel off the Normandy coastline, whose monks were invited to build a smaller abbey here in Cornwall. During Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries, St Michael’s Mount was turned into a coastline defence to protect England from feared French invasion. In 1659, the Mount was purchased by Sir John St Aubyn whose descendants turned the fortress into a magnificent residence and still reside in this ancestral home today.

      Enjoy a guided tour of the Castle on St Michael’s Mount followed by some free time to take photographs and soak up the scenery. There are also some wonderful shops around the harbour area – the perfect place to buy a memento of your day.

      Slapton Sands and the Forgotten Heroes of D-Day

      21 Jun Dartmouth, England, United Kingdom
      Half Day
      The idyllic town of Dartmouth in Devon, situated at the mouth of the River Dart, is not only home to the Royal Navy from its very earliest days but also the ideal stepping off point for a look at some of the less talked about aspects of the D-Day landings.

      The idyllic town of Dartmouth in Devon, situated at the mouth of the River Dart, is not only home to the Royal Navy from its very earliest days but also the ideal stepping off point for a look at some of the less talked about aspects of the D-Day landings.

      Every suitable beach and slipway along this stretch of coastline was utilised to stage the D-Day landings. Based on its similarity to much of the French coastline, Slapton was selected for a vast rehearsal prior to the actual landings.

      Join your local guide today for a visit to Slapton Sands, site of one of the most unfortunate episodes to take place in the build up to the D-Day operations. Hear a D-Day expert explain the significance of this remote stretch of beach and visit the Memorial given by the United States to the local inhabitants in gratitude for them evacuating their homes to make way for war wounded. Continue to Torcross to see one of the Sherman tanks brought up from the beach. Afterwards, return to Dartmouth for a walking tour of this fascinating town and free time to enjoy the surrounds before joining the tender back to the ship at your leisure.

      Medieval Totnes and Buckfast Abbey

      21 Jun Dartmouth, England, United Kingdom
      Half Day
      Visit a Medieval town that remains to this day a thriving market town, and travel to a fascinating nearby Abbey, lovingly rebuilt in recent times. On the edge of the moor lies Buckfast Abbey, a thriving community of Benedictine monks. The original 11th century Buckfast Abbey fell into ruin after the dissolution of the monasteries.

      Visit a Medieval town that remains to this day a thriving market town, and travel to a fascinating nearby Abbey, lovingly rebuilt in recent times. On the edge of the moor lies Buckfast Abbey, a thriving community of Benedictine monks. The original 11th century Buckfast Abbey fell into ruin after the dissolution of the monasteries. In 1882, four monks returned, and in 1906 they began the monumental task of rebuilding the church themselves. It took them 31 years – a feat made even more remarkable by the fact that only one of them had previous building experience. Now only the absence of the patina of age distinguishes this splendid church – a mix of early English and Norman styles – from the original fabric

      A presentation and exhibition explains the monks' achievement and their present-day work. Famed for its stained glass, fine examples of the monk’s own work adorn the Abbey. You’ll have plenty of time to explore the abbey, the gardens and the produce shop, which sells everything from bees wax to the much enjoyed monastic beverage, meade.

      Afterwards, head to the thriving medieval town of Totnes. Choose to explore with your guide and ascend the steep hill to the wellpreserved castle, or enjoy some time to shop in the eclectic selection of quaint ancient stores in the town’s narrow streets.

      Half Day Cobbled Streets
      The history of Honfleur, long sung about by poets and painted by famous artists, has always been tightly bound to the sea. Today, Honfleur offers visitors a unique heritage which can best be glimpsed by a leisurely stroll along its picturesque narrow streets lined by timber-framed houses.

      One of Honfleur’s major sites is St Catherine’s Church, which dates from the 15th century and also has the distinction of being France’s largest timber-built church. The separate bell tower, located opposite above the bell-ringer’s house, is likewise made of oak. Other sites of interest you will see on this tour are the Salt Warehouses, originally run by the Gabelle (tax on salt) collectors, the Lieutenancy, once the residence of the city governor, and the Old Port, which has some beautifully picturesque quaysides.

      After your visit, you will then have some time on your own to enjoy the quaint atmosphere of this charming little town before returning to Aegean Odyssey.

      Panoramic London

      23 Jun London, England, United Kingdom
      Half Day

      From the hustle and bustle of Leicester Square, at the heart of London’s theatre district and the city’s quiet parks with their trees and lakes, to the grandeur of Buckingham Palace and the living history of Westminster Abbey, London’s fascination is its variety.

      Old and new stand side by side. History, pageantry and tradition mix with the modern, eccentric and avant-garde, offering something for everyone. This leisurely tour is a great way for you to obtain an overall impression of one of the most lively and interesting cities in the world. Our tour itinerary takes us on a circular itinerary around the capital where we view the highlights from the comfort of the coach.

      We see Westminster, Whitehall and St James’s section of London, crossing Westminster Bridge, and passing by the neo-Gothic Parliament buildings presiding over the banks of the River Thames and its adjacent 320-foot clock tower of Big Ben. From Parliament Square, we look across to St Margaret’s Church, scene of society weddings.

      Standing adjacent is the architectural and masterpiece of the 13th to 16th centuries – Westminster Abbey. Your guide will point out the main external features of the building and you will be able to take photographs of the outside.

      A Visit to Greenwich

      23 Jun London, England, United Kingdom
      This leisurely guided tour begins with a stroll through Greenwich Royal Park to the world-famous Observatory, spiritual birthplace of GMT and traditional home to the Prime Meridian of global longitude. This hugely important line is represented on the ground by a brass strip and is one of London’s most popular attractions, where standing astride it one can truly be said to be in both eastern and western hemispheres at the same time.

This hugely important line is represented on the ground by a brass strip and is one of London’s most popular attractions, where standing astride it one can truly be said to be in both eastern and western hemispheres at the same time.

      A walk past the National Maritime Museum then leads us to The Queen’s House, commissioned in 1616 by the wife of James I, Anne of Denmark. Designed by Inigo Jones, this masterpiece is the first Palladian building to be built in Britain and became the inspiration for many other classical houses and villas over the subsequent two centuries. Originally used as a private retreat and “House of Delights”, it is now an active venue for the appreciation and exploration of art, including a collection of paintings owned by the National Maritime Museum.

      The finally destination is the Old Royal Naval College, considered to be the “finest and most dramatically-sited architectural and landscape ensemble in the British Isles”. Founded in 1694 as the Royal Hospital for Seamen, the Old Royal Naval College is a superb example of Baroque landscape, designed by some of the greatest architects of their day, including Sir Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this enormously popular attraction is now managed by the Greenwich Foundation.

This walking tour of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh's oldest and most historic street, will take you from the Edinburgh Castle Esplanade to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, a route rich with medieval buildings, statues and monuments lining both sides of the street.

      The city's dominant landmark is the 12th-century castle atop its rocky, extinct volcanic perch, which affords magnificent views of the city. From here we will walk to Castle Hill, which has a unique collection of ruins, before continuing down Royal Mile to see beautiful Gladstone's Land, a superb example of early 17th-century architecture featuring an outside staircase, arcaded ground floor, oak shutters, leaded glass windows and crow-stepped gables.

      The charming Lady Stair's House, also constructed in the 17th century, was once a private home, but today houses a literary museum devoted to the works of Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson.

      We will then walk through the elegant district of Cannongate, with its quaint Tollbooth that is now a museum detailing life in 18th-century Edinburgh. The design on this building has a delightful series of small, delicate turrets. Finally, standing proudly at the end of Royal Mile, is the magnificent Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen while in Scotland. This ornate, baroque palace is famously known as the home of Mary Queen of Scots and within its walls many dramatic episodes of her turbulent reign unfolded.

      Anne Frank Statue and Jewish Historical Museum

      6 Jul Amsterdam, Holland, Netherlands
      Half Day
      When Anne Frank and her German-Jewish family fled Nazis Germany in 1934, they were able to build a new life in a quiet suburban area of Amsterdam known as the Merwedeplein, a triangle of buildings that remains much as it would have appeared to Anne when she played here with her friends and walked to the neighbourhood school each morning.

      When Anne Frank and her German-Jewish family fled Nazis Germany in 1934, they were able to build a new life in a quiet suburban area of Amsterdam known as the Merwedeplein, a triangle of buildings that remains much as it would have appeared to Anne when she played here with her friends and walked to the neighbourhood school each morning.

       

      At the western edge of the Merwedeplein is a bronze statue depicting Anne as she may have looked on the day she was forced into hiding above her father’s workplace in 1942, bag in hand, eyes downcast, head turned forlornly towards the home she was leaving behind. Your guide will also take you to the nearby bookstore where Anne first saw the red and white check diary into which she would later pour her hopes, thoughts, fears and experiences of life inside the “Achterhuis”, or “Secret Annex”, before transcribing it into a series of other notebooks.

       

      Thanks to the country’s tolerant government, persecuted Jews from other countries have long been welcomed into the Netherlands. At the city’s Jewish Historical Museum you will have a chance to learn more about the history of Judaism in the country while admiring various works of art and ceremonial objects associated with the religion. It’s then just a short stroll past the NEMO science museum to reach Aegean Odyssey at the city’s cruise terminal.

      Van Gogh Museum and Canal Cruise

      6 Jul Amsterdam, Holland, Netherlands
      Half Day
      Vincent Van Gogh only sold one painting during his lifetime but in the year since then has become the embodiment of a tragically misunderstood genius and one of the most recognisable painters in history. It’s only fitting, therefore, that the world’s largest collection of his work should be housed in the city where he applied for university and attempted to sell some of his early work.

      Vincent Van Gogh only sold one painting during his lifetime but in the year since then has become the embodiment of a tragically misunderstood genius and one of the most recognisable painters in history. It’s only fitting, therefore, that the world’s largest collection of his work should be housed in the city where he applied for university and attempted to sell some of his early work.

       

      The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam features more than two hundred paintings and drawings by the maestro, including three of his most important masterpieces, “The Potato Eaters”, “Bedroom in Arles” and one of the three “Sunflowers” repetitions. There’s also a fantastic collection of pieces by some of his contemporaries, including works by Paul Gauguin, Claude Monet, Édouard Manet, Georges Seurat, and Toulouse-Lautrec, as well as Van Gogh’s personal collection of Japanese prints, and the letters he wrote to his devoted brother, Theo, over the course of his life.

       

      Following your time in the museum you will then transfer to an awaiting riverboat for a relaxing one-hour cruise through the city’s world famous network of canals. Amsterdam is renowned for the narrowness of its 16th and 17th-century houses, most of which are no more than nine metres wide. Cruising beneath the city’s romantic network of bridges, your guide will explain more about the history of this wonderful European city, including the unique reason for its architectural style. The cruise then comes to an end on the river that gives Amsterdam its name, the Amstel, from where it’s just a short stroll back to Aegean Odyssey.

      Housing roughly one million artefacts and with at least 8,000 of them on display at any one time, this vast collection is dominated by the works of 17th-century Dutch masters Frans Hals, Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt, with a hall devoted entirely to “The Night Watch”. But there are plenty of other highlights to see, including the mediaeval masterpieces of Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch and Giovanni Bellini, as well as a wonderful Asian pavilion containing art brought together from China, Japan, Indonesia, India, Vietnam and Thailand, all dating from 2000 BC to 2000 AD.

      MV AEGEAN ODYSSEY

       

      There is a particular pleasure that comes with cruising aboard a smaller ship. Hosting an average of just 350 passengers, Aegean Odyssey is no ‘floating city’. She is small enough to sail rivers and put into the more characterful ports inaccessible to the ‘mega-ships’, the service is more personal and you get plenty of time to interact with the onboard experts.

      Yet on the other hand, she is large enough to offer a superb selection of amenities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a relaxing spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed, and 39 cabins across a range of categories (including balcony) are set aside for solo travellers at low supplement.
