    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.

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.

    Few palaces in history can hold a candle to the Château de Versailles for its breathtaking grandeur and extraordinary beauty.

    Few palaces in history can hold a candle to the Château de Versailles for its breathtaking grandeur and extraordinary beauty. This enormous UNESCO World Heritage site was the crowning achievement of 18th-century French architecture and demands a whole day of sightseeing to explore its many ornate rooms and exquisite gardens, which cover over two thousand acres of land.

    Originally built in the early 17th-century for King Louis XIII, it was his son, Louis XIV (the famous “Sun King”) who expanded the palace and moved his court here in 1682. The total cost of Versailles has been conservatively estimated at around two billion US dollars in modern currency and came perilously close to bankrupting the king. He survived to enjoy a decadent reign, however, but his lavishness at the expense of the nation would not be forgotten.

    During the 18th-century the chateau was enlarged by King Louis XV and the parkland extensively transformed by Marie Antoinette, who was then betrothed to the Dauphin, Louis XVI. Following the French Revolution the royal family were forced to leave, the palace was plundered and fell into disrepair. After centuries of changing fortunes, however, it was eventually designated a permanent national treasure and is currently undergoing a twenty-year restoration process that began in 2003, at a cost of four hundred million euros.

    During your guided tour around this incredible palace you will discover more about its turbulent history, before lunch is served at a nearby restaurant. In the afternoon there will be plenty of time to visit the magnificent Versailles’ gardens, after which you will return to Aegean Odyssey in Rouen.

After enjoying a spectacular river cruise to Rouen, you will arrive early in the French capital, for a whole day of scenic sightseeing, with some fabulous stops along the way.

     

    Your guide will ensure you get to see the Champs-Elysées and the fabulous Arc de Triomphe, which was commissioned in 1806 to celebrate Napoleon’s victory at Austerlitz. You will also pass the largest public square in Paris and the site of many infamous public executions during the Revolution, Place de la Concorde.

     

    When the Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889 it was a source of great controversy, but today this magnificent structure is arguably France’s most recognisable landmark. After some free time for lunch, you will then be taken to Notre-Dame on the banks of the Seine, for a guided tour of the Gothic cathedral which inspired Victor Hugo’s celebrated novel.

     

    Along the way your guide will point out many of the city’s other wonderful sights, including the Opera de Paris Garnier, the Vendôme Column, the Conciergerie where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned and the prestigious Louvre museum. You will then return to Aegean Odyssey in Rouen to continue your cruise around the coast of France.

    Medieval Rouen

    22 Aug Rouen, France
    Half Day Uneven or Volcanic Ground
    Rouen is a city that has stirred the souls of many great writers and inspired numerous artists, most notably Claude Monet, who famously painted its cathedral in a series of experimental pieces throughout 1892 and 1893. Situated on the north bank of the River Seine, for centuries the port was one of the most important in France and is considered the historic capital of Normandy. Rouen also has a tragic connection with the nation’s most beloved heroine, Joan of Arc, who was executed here in 1431.

Rouen also has a tragic connection with the nation’s most beloved heroine, Joan of Arc, who was executed here in 1431.

    Your morning tour of the city will begin with a scenic drive to the summit of Hill Sainte Catherine, which has some spectacular views across Rouen and the Seine. You will then enjoy a fascinating walking tour through the city’s Historic Quarter to the Old Market Place, where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake, followed by the beautiful 14th-century astronomical Gros Horloge clock, which is mounted on a Renaissance archway above a quaint cobblestone street. Powered by the oldest mechanical movement in France, the dial has an oculus to denote the phases of the moon, allegorical symbols representing the days of the week and rays of sunshine pointing to the hours of the day.

    After stopping to admire Normandy’s flamboyant Gothic-Renaissance style Parliament building, you will arrive at the wonderful 16th-century Cathedral that was so splendidly captured in paint by Monet, followed by Saint Maclou Church, which together form a tryptic of internationally significant Gothic buildings. Some free time will then be available to explore at leisure, before your return to Aegean Odyssey.

    Impressions of Giverny

    This afternoon tour is a dream for art lovers and horticulturalists alike, as it will take you into the house and gardens of Claude Monet, the founding father of Impressionism and arguably the most influential post-Realist painter of the 19th-century.

    This afternoon tour is a dream for art lovers and horticulturalists alike, as it will take you into the house and gardens of Claude Monet, the founding father of Impressionism and arguably the most influential post-Realist painter of the 19th-century.

     

    In 1883 Monet was travelling by train through the French countryside when he spotted the idyllic village of Giverny through the window and instantly fell in love with it. Mourning the recent death of his wife, on impulse Claude packed his belongings and moved to the magical pink brick house that would become the Monet family home for the next eighty years. By the 1890s Monet had achieved enough financial success to create an Arcadian paradise of sculpted flowerbeds, lily ponds and bridges that became the inspiration for many of his most famous works.

     

    Today the house is a museum filled with reproductions of the “Giverny paintings”, as well as Monet’s personal collection of 200 Japanese ukiyo-e prints, which date from the 18th and 19th-centuries. Most of the colourful interior is open to the public, including the “blue salon” or reading room, the dining room filled with yellow-painted furniture, the delightfully blue-tiled kitchen, the huge “Waterlily Studio” and the private apartments upstairs. Free time will then be available to enjoy a peaceful stroll through the adjacent flower garden and the Japanese water garden. Both of these beautiful spaces have been replanted according to Monet’s original designs and in August will be filled with a spectacular

    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.

    Perched on the hillside like an eagle’s nest, Chateau d’Usse has been a site of strategic importance ever since 1000AD, when the region of Touraine was prey to incessant fighting between rival local nobilities.

In the centuries since, its wood and stone construction has been gradually transformed into a residence befitting a fairy tale, largely thanks to the addition of its charming 17th-century pavilion and classic French gothic towers. Today its elegant architecture, rare furnishings and French formal garden, designed by Le Notre and terraced by Vauban, make it one of the most surprising and enchanting manor houses in the entire Loire Valley and a showpiece of national heritage.

    After lunch, you will be taken to Chinonfor a guided tour of the Royal Fortress, another highly sought after stronghold, overlooking the Vienne Valley at the crossroads of the three provinces of Anjou, Poitou and Touraine. This rocky spur boasts breathtaking views from numerous viewpoints so it’s perhaps no surprise that a castle has existed here since at least the 10th-century.

    The Fortress has been involved in numerous moments of historical importance. In 1308, Jacques de Molay and other dignitaries of the Knights Templar were imprisoned at Chinon before being sentenced and burned at the stake. In 1429, Charles VII’s legitimacy as the next king of France was threatened, prompting Joan of Arc to undertake an epic eleven-day journey on horseback to convince him of his legitimacy. The ride was an incredible feat and went on to become a famous part of her mythology.

    Villandry and Fontevraud Abbey

    When Jean Le Breton, Controller-General for War during the reign of François I, arrived at Villandry in 1532, he had most of the site’s old feudal fortress razed to the ground. Thankfully, he decided to spare the medieval keep where Henry II of England (Henry Plantagenet) had admitted defeat to King Philip Augustus of France and constructed his new residence, the Chateau de Villandry, around the original 14th-century castellation.

Thankfully, he decided to spare the medieval keep where Henry II of England (Henry Plantagenet) had admitted defeat to King Philip Augustus of France and constructed his new residence, the Chateau de Villandry, around the original 14th-century castellation.

    The last of the great chateaux to be built in the Loire Valley during the Renaissance, Villandry’s originality lies not only in its avant-garde architecture but also in its harmony with nature. Its water garden, ornamental flower gardens and vegetable garden, overlooking the River Cher, have earned the estate an international reputation.

    By contrast, the medieval “ideal city” of Fontevraud Royal Abbey is one of the largest surviving monastic cities from the Middle Ages. A place of worship dedicated to prayer and work, in abstinence, silence and poverty, Fontevraud was a royal necropolis for over seven centuries, during which time 36 abbesses, often drawn from high nobility, and sometimes even of royal blood, succeeded one another in the running of the Abbey.

    The scale of the site is huge, boasting thirteen hectares of ancient buildings, including the cloister, chapter house and kitchens, all of which provide a unique exploration into the daily lives of the nuns who lived here. The discoveries don’t stop at the Abbey, however. The Saint-Benoit area and the Saint-Lazare priory are also perfect for a stroll, as are the gardens, where vegetables, herbs and fruit trees create the ideal landscape for reflection.

    Famous for its medieval kings in England, the name Plantagenet conjures up images of the War of the Roses and the Magna Carta, but this famous dynasty actually has its origins in France, or more precisely, the city of Angers.

    At the heart of Angers’ delightful medieval quarter stands a superb gothic cathedral and imposing feudal castle. Known as the Château d’Angers, this remarkable fortress was built in the 9th-century and expanded upon by “Saint” Louis IX during the 13th-century, to become the castle you will explore today as part of your guided walking tour.

    Inside you will see the extraordinary Apocalypse Tapestry, which was commissioned by Louis I, Duke of Anjou in the 14th-century to depict the Book of Revelation. This masterpiece of textile art is the oldest French medieval tapestry in existence and has survived a tumultuous past, including being cut to pieces during the French Revolution.

    Following lunch in a gastronomic restaurant you will then arrive at the Château de Brissac for a tour of another castle, this one the tallest in the Loire Valley. During the 17th-century the 1st Duke of Brissac redesigned the Château in the Baroque style, but his work was never entirely completed, leaving it something of a new château partially built, in an old château partially destroyed.

    Your guided tour of the Château includes many fine works of art that have been collected by the Brissac family over the centuries. There will then be a tasting of some wine produced in the estate’s vineyards, before your return to Nantes.

    Then on to L’Esplanade des Quinconces. This is one of Europe’s largest squares (12 hectares) and its principal monument was erected between 1894 and 1902 in memory of the Girondists who fell victim of the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. 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. 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.

The views from the summit are truly spectacular and stretch all the way to the rolling hills of the Basque countryside in the distance, making them a must-see part of any visit to the “Pearl of the Cantabrian Sea”, as San Sebastián has historically been known.

    Your tour then continues to the city centre for a guided stroll through the pedestrianised old quarter, to the 18th-century baroque Santa María La Real Church and the Plaza de la Constitución. This four storey square has been the civic heart of the city since the Middle Ages and is frequently the venue for carnival festivities and religious celebrations.

    In the early 19th-century, Constitution Square was destroyed by fire, but a unique peculiarity has endured in its reconstruction: the numbering of its balconies, which hark back to a time when the square was used as a bullring and spectators could buy or rent these improvised “seats” to watch the event.

    Following your tour around the city centre there will then be some time to continue exploring at leisure, or you may simply relax in a café and try the local form of tapas, known as ‘pintxos’, before your return to Aegean Odyssey.

    Views of San Sebastian Panoramic Tour

    28 Aug San Sebastian, Spain
    Half Day
    To the south of the Pyrenes, the Spanish city of San Sebastián is a lively coastal resort with a sweeping waterfront and some lovely sandy beaches, making it the ideal place for a panoramic tour.

During your drive around the city your guide will explain more about the historic Parte Vieja district and the famous oyster-like curve of La Concha Promenade, as you sit back, relax and take in the sights.

     

    Approaching the bay from the east you will pass-by the extraordinary translucent glass cubes of the Kursaal Palace, where Spain’s biggest film festival takes place, before crossing the uniquely Expressionistic Zurriola bridge to arrive at the majestic 19th-century City Hall and the beautiful Alderdi-Eder waterfront gardens, where you will get your first look at the amazing La Concha curve.

                                                                                                

    Following the long promenade closely, the seafront road enters a tunnel beneath the iconic Mirimar Palace (once the summer home of the Queen of Spain) before ascending to the summit of the 170-metre high Mount Igueldo, overlooking the bay from a perfect vantage point to the west. Here you will be able to enjoy some refreshments at the café and perhaps try some local tapas, known as ‘pintxos’, while you admire the breathtaking views of tiny Santa Clara Island in the mouth of the bay and the rolling hills of the Basque countryside to the south.

     

    After some time on Mount Igueldo you will then pass the remarkable Neo-Gothic Cathedral of “El Buen Pastor” on your return to Aegean Odyssey.

    Santiago de Compostela

    30 Aug La Coruna, Spain
    Full Day Extensive WalkingLunch Included
    Vigo, the Gateway to the Atlantic, is a great combination of ancient history, beautiful beaches and a modern cosmopolitan outlook. This Galician city also has a proud heritage. 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 La Coruna 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 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.

     

    *Due to ongoing restoration works on the façade of the cathedral, it is not known at time of printing whether inside visits will be permitted. Further information will be provided at the time of final documents.

    A taste of La Coruna

    30 Aug La Coruna, Spain
    Half Day Cobbled Streets
    Settled in Roman times, La Coruna grew into an important port that saw off the attentions of Sir Francis Drake in the sixteenth century and went on to be the gateway through which thousands of Galicians travelled on their way to a new life in America. Begin with a visit to the Town Hall in the Plaza Maria Pita.

Begin with a visit to the Town Hall in the Plaza Maria Pita.

    La Coruna's main plaza takes its name from the town's heroine, Maria Pita who came to fame as a result of her role in Sir Francis Drake's attack in 1589. Continue on foot to visit the old part of the city, which contains most of the city’s historical monuments. Then drive along La Coruna’s waterfront boulevard, and visit the Archaeological Museum located at the Castle of San Anton.

    Close by is the Tower of Hercules, an ancient Roman Lighthouse, almost 1,900-years-old and standing 185 feet (57 meters) high. The Tower of Hercules is unique as it is the only lighthouse of Greco-Roman antiquity to have retained a measure of structural integrity and functional continuity and it still remains working nowadays.

    Finally, enjoy an appetiser or a drink in La Coruna before returning to the pier.

    Oporto City and Port Tasting

    31 Aug Oporto, Portugal
    Half Day Cobbled Streets
    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.

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.

    Half Day
    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.

    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.
