Western European Passage
With Ambassador Elisabeth Millard
About the Tour
The Atlantic ports of Western Europe have long served to connect the continent with the wider world, acting as bases for local and global trade, discovery, and conquest, and producing great wealth in the process. On this voyage, we discover some of the finest artistic and cultural fruits of that wealth as we sail the length of the coast from the North Sea to Iberia. Among the places we visit are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites—the storied abbey/fortress of Mont-St.-Michel, the great Christian pilgrimage site of Santiago de Compostela, and Coimbra University in Portugal, one of the oldest universities in Europe. To these justly famous monuments, we add extraordinary collections of art in Amsterdam and Bruges, the picturesque fishing towns of Honfleur and Concarneau, and Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, almost certainly destined to become another UNESCO site.
From $9,590 per person plus airfare.
