    The Perfumed Isle and Prunelli River Gorges

    Ajaccio, Corsica, France

    Duration 3 1/2 hrs

    Relax on this panoramic driving tour of Corsica’s spectacular interior, a land little-changed over centuries. Pass through Cuaro village and beautifully rugged, mountainous terrain, resplendent with lush forests. You’ll see the dense shrubbery known as “maquis” blanketing the countryside and inhale the extraordinarily fragrant evergreen, interspersed with aromatic lavender, myrtle and wild mint. Journey past modest vineyards and cultivated fields before you enter peaceful Pineta Forest, dominated by tall, striking laricio pines, expansive chestnuts and dramatic beech trees. Enter heart-stopping Prunelli Gorges with its jagged granite walls and descend through serpentine twists and curves. Arrive ultimately at serene, man-made Tolla Lake, source of Ajaccio’s hydro-electric power, and snap a postcard-worthy photo. Sharp pinnacles emerge from the forest just past Tolla, a ridge-top village nestled into the mountainside, then the amazing vista opens to an expanse of fertile valley below. Delight in numerous picturesque hamlets, including Ocana, known for austere granite homes, and imagine everyday life in this timeless land.

    Highlights of Hiroshima

    Hiroshima, Japan

    Duration 4 hrs

    View the landmarks of Hiroshima, some commemorating the atomic bomb blast here in 1945 and others reflecting the city’s celebration of peace. At the poignant Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, you will behold the ruins of some of the few concrete buildings left after the atomic bomb was dropped. One of them, the Atomic Bomb Dome, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and has become a symbol of Hiroshima. You will also browse the Peace Memorial Museum whose exhibits show Hiroshima before and after the bombing and personal artifacts from the victims that humanize the devastating event. The museum encourages visitors to make a vow for universal peace. While the mood there is somber, serenity is the overarching theme at Shukkei-en Garden. Besides being a wonderful respite from the hubbub of the city, the garden is a visual delight, as plants are always in bloom. Although the atomic bomb destroyed the garden, it has been fully restored.

    Go Local -Spacca Napoli & folded pizza

    Naples, Italy

    Duration 3 1/2 hrs

    Enjoy an enlightening tour of Naples by visiting Spaccanapoli, the street that divides the city, and by savoring folded pizza, a classic Neapolitan treat.


    After departing from the pier, you will begin a panoramic drive around Naples, taking in the views from locales such as Posillipo Hill in one of the city’s most affluent areas. Along the way, you will pass the imposing Castle Nuovo.


    While parts of it date to the 13th century, it is still known as the new castle to distinguish it from the famed Egg Castle, which began as a 1st-century Roman villa. Castle Nuovo’s five towers make it one of Naples’ most recognizable landmarks. You will also see the Egg Castle, which holds a commanding position on the sea.


    In time, you will reach Spaccanapoli, a long street whose name means “Naples splitter,” a reference to it seeming to divide the city in two. Here, you will visit the Jesuit church Gesú Nuovo and the Church of Santa Chiara, which was founded in 1310 and features an austere Provencal-Gothic style. Much of Santa Chiara had to be rebuilt after World War II.


    For an even more authentic glimpse into daily life, you will walk through the narrow streets of Old Town, which UNESCO has declared a Cultural Heritage site. As you will discover, there is no better setting to eat portafoglio or folded pizza, as the dish was invented in Naples. A cup of fresh espresso at a nearby café standing at the counter as Neapolitan does will top off the experience.


    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes approximately 2.5 hours of walking/standing; there will be some inclines and cobblestone surfaces to negotiate.

    Go Local - Visiting Artists in Their Studios

    Palma, Majorca, Spain

    Duration 4 1/4 hrs

    Visit three acclaimed artists in their studios in Valldemossa, where you will see their works and discuss their creative processes. The village is an inspiring setting that is just as beautiful as it was when Polish composer Frédéric Chopin and French novelist George Sand wintered there in the 19th century. Valldemossa still attracts musicians, writers and most prominently painters, who come to capture the natural beauty. At the studio of Slovenia-born Bruno Zupan, you can expect to see his glowing landscape paintings and limited-edition serigraphs and lithographs. You will also spend time with Natasha Zupan, Bruno’s immensely talented daughter. She typically works in mixed media and describes her style as “the search for the heart of the matter.” The third artist is Guillermo Rodríguez, known simply as Guillermín. Many of his works are in white or black or a combination of the two colors. The white, he explains, represents the light of the soul, while black expresses fear.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Visit three artists in their studios in naturally beautiful Valldemossa.
    • Discuss the creative process with the artists and what inspires them.
    • View the artists’ works, which include landscape paintings and mixed media.

    Go Local - Villagelife of Valbonne & Olives of Opio

    Cannes, France

    Duration 3 3/4 hrs

    Discover the charms of two inland villages, one a medieval gem with fine shopping, the other featuring a rare olive mill. Unlike other villages in Provence, Valbonne was designed on a Roman grid plan, so the streets are straight and perpendicular rather than winding. After a guided walking tour through the leafy plazas, you will enjoy free time in Valbonne. You might be surprised by how cosmopolitan it is, especially with regard to shopping and dining. You will then drive a bit farther inland to Opio, a smaller village surrounded by olive groves and pine trees. Opio has one of the area’s few remaining olive mills, which has been operating since the 15th century. Now powered by electricity rather than water, the mill still presses fresh oil from locally gathered olives as it has for centuries. After hearing about the mill’s history, you will sample some the olives and freshly pressed oil with a glass of wine.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Enjoy a leisurely and immensely picturesque drive inland to two villages in Provence.
    • Spend free time in medieval Valbonne, where you may shop in its sophisticated boutiques.
    • Sample olives, freshly pressed olive oil and a glass of wine at a 15th-century olive mill.

    Fruits of the Valley

    Guernsey, Channel Islands, United Kingdom

    Duration 3 hrs

    Meander through the orchards at a family farm that makes Rocquette apple ciders and sample a remarkable variety of them. As you travel inland, you will notice the countryside becoming more and more agricultural. Although cider-making dates to the 1700s in the Channel Islands, it has experienced a renaissance. To meet the growing demand, the farm that you will visit planted an additional 5,000 apple trees over the past two decades. The owners also updated their equipment and altered their farming techniques for organic production. The result is a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic ciders with distinct characters and crisp tastes. You will sample as many as nine Rocquette ciders that may include a refreshing draft with a prominent “appley” taste, a medium-strong aromatic cider blended with hops and a sweet cider made with raspberry juice. Local cheese, fresh-baked biscuits and the farm’s own apple chutneys will be served as accompaniments.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit a family farm with thousands of apple trees for the production of organic ciders.
    • Gain insight into the history of cider-making and the growing interest in cider.
    • Sample an inspired selection of apple ciders paired with cheeses, biscuits and chutneys.
