Make the most of the autumn sunshine on this escape to Spain, Portugal and France with the added bonus of a stop in amazing Amsterdam. Reaching France, we glide into La Pallice, a fourteenth century port and from where you might like to visit the medieval harbour town of La Rochelle. Sailing on, we arrive at Getxo, a lovely seaside resort with historic monuments and our gateway to Bilbao. Relax onboard as your floating hotel cruises along the River Tagus, calling at Lisbon, a graceful city with an intriguing honeycomb of cobbled streets in its old quarter. Next, it’s Gibraltar, home to Barbary apes and astonishing caves then another taste of Spain concludes our sightseeing as we dock at La Coruna where you’ll find the UNESCO listed Torre de Hercules lighthouse.
