Bordeaux to Edinburgh
Smaller ports and five overnight stays give you a more in-depth and intimate look at France, the Low Countries, Scotland and Ireland. Get to know the full spectrum of France’s beauty. In romantic St.-Malo, witness the improbable abbey perched on Mont-Saint-Michel, emerging like a mermaid from the sea. Trade the organic earth tones of the abbey for Versaille’s over-the-top Baroque splendor, all gilt and mirrors. And embrace the muted palette of Claude Monet, his Honfleur gardens and water lilies as lovely today as when he first painted them. Taste wines from vineyards whose legendary terroir includes prehistoric caves and 11th-century basilicas. Visit Normandy beaches still raw with emotion. Then cross the North Sea to Dublin – home of Guinness, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and pubs dating back to the 12th century. Explore Titanic history in Belfast or follow the big footsteps of Finn McCool to the Giant’s Causeway. Discover secret summer escapes like Oban and Ullapool, small towns with oversized helpings of scenery and seafood. And end your voyage in Edinburgh, where the Royal Mile leading to Edinburgh Castle is filled with history, mystery and anticipation.

Day 1: Bordeaux
Bordeaux has long been known as La Belle au Bois Dormant, Sleeping Beauty.  And while the beauty part is undeniable, the sleeping part could be argued. Sure, the region is filled with treasures from long ago, including more than 350 historic monuments and buildings in the city alone. But the capital of Aquitaine is also home to a vibrant culture and, as oenophiles well know, is the gateway to some of France’s most famous vineyards. In this UNESCO World Heritage city, 13th century cathedrals and 18th century palaces are commonplace. Venture beyond the city’s borders to the chateaux of the Médoc region or to Saint-Émilion, a breathtaking medieval village set among the vineyards that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 3: La Rochelle
La Rochelle is said to be the most lovely and unspoiled port city in France, and who are we to argue?  Two 14th century stone towers guard the gateway to the medieval core of the city, the Vieux Port. And this is a city that is focused on ships. You’ll find yachts floating in the Port des Minimes, ships in the stained glass of church windows, maybe even decorating the arcaded walkways that line the streets. Learn the art of brandy making with a visit to the Cognac region and the Hennessy maisson, dating back to 1765. While walking past the aging barrels, inhale the heady aroma—the escaping vapors known as “the angels’ share.”

Once notorious as the home of pirates, St.-Malo today is better known for the UNESCO site monastery and town of Mont St. Michel and the famous oysters of nearby Cancale. Walk the city’s ramparts, or pass the time at a seaside boulangerie sampling a fresh and buttery croissant.
