Cruise on board Ventura from Southampton to Southampton for 7 nights.
The Iberian Peninsula is a place famed for its history of exploration and discovery, as much as for its stirring cosmopolitan present. So, like those adventurers of old (with a few more luxuries), discover some of the region’s most exciting destinations – with a call in France on the way home. Board luxurious Ventura in Southampton and adjust to the pace of cruise life as you sail to Spain’s busiest fishing port, Vigo. Then, drink in the timeless views of Lisbon as you cruise along the Tagus River. Ashore, the city is crammed with leading-edge design, rich classical architecture, history, and contemporary culture. Porto is an enchanting city with Roman ramparts, Parisian-style squares, a treasure-filled cathedral area, and a riverside quarter dotted with fashionable bars and seafood restaurants. But Porto’s main – and rightful – claim to fame is its delicious, fortified port wine, to which the city gave its name. In Cherbourg, the rich flavours of Normandy take centre stage – seafood, cider, Calvados, crème fraîche and cheese. Feast on them in great local restaurants, and feast your eyes in the markets of the Place de Gaulle.
