    Experience Bruges like a local by exploring areas off the beaten path but still in the shadow of landmarks such as Kruispoort. Although you will stop at this 15th-century gate, the sites that lie ahead will reveal a lesser-known but not less spectacular side of Bruges. You will see windmills along medieval ramparts, follow atmospheric lanes through residential neighborhoods and pause at the bridges and inner canals that gave Bruges its nickname, the Venice of the North. Upon arriving in St. Anne’s, you will behold the Jerusalem Chapel, which was designed to mirror the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. By the 16th century, Bruges had become a textile center for woven lace, and you will observe a demonstration of this artisan trade that continues to flourish. Another way to become immersed in local life is at the Markt, a sprawling square that has been a marketplace for more than 1,000 years.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Explore atmospheric areas of Bruges that are typically unknown to all but the locals.
    • Cross landmark canals that gave Bruges its nickname, the Venice of the North.
    • Watch a demonstration of lace making, a trade that has flourished in Bruges for centuries.

    If there is one memory you’ll take home with you, it’s of drifting through Venice’s canals on a gondola as darkened waters lap your boat and music melts on the air.

    Recife, Olinda & Brennard Estate

    Sail a catamaran along the wide Capibaribe River through downtown Recife and then enjoy some free time shopping in a mall that was formerly a prison.


    Departing from the pier, it’s a short transfer to a nearby dock and your awaiting catamaran. The double-hulled vessel offers a unique and wonderful way to view Recife, as the city was founded on three islands separated by various waterways. Cruising through the arteries of the Capibaribe River, you will soon understand why Recife is known as “Brazil’s Venice.”


    Nearly 40 bridges connect the islands, whose architecture ranges from soaring skyscrapers to lovely colonial mansions. The exact sights on the cruise will depend on the route that the captain choses, but you can expect to see a vast contrast in the buildings and bridges. Some may be Dutch influenced, others will be sleek and modern, and still others will reflect different historical periods. The Capibaribe River is named for the capybara, the world’s largest rodent, which inhabited the shoreline centuries ago.


    After your nearly ninety-minute scenic cruise, you will disembark the catamaran and drive to Casa da Cultura, a 19th-century prison that was transformed into a shopping mall in the 1970s. Most of the merchandise is handicrafts, traditional in nature and wonderfully diverse. The offerings include wooden sculptures, leather goods, lace and ceramics. If you can’t imagine the mall once being a prison, seek out the rather grim cell that has been left intact, perhaps as a message to thwart shoplifting. After approximately forty minutes of free time, you will rejoin your coach and return to the pier.

    Admire Hamburg from two unique perspectives: while cruising along the shores of its main urban lake, and while driving past its most historical highlights.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon notice the abundance of waterways throughout the city. The Elbe River connects Hamburg to the North Sea, and the city boasts an extensive network of Venice-like canals. The prevalence of water keeps Hamburg’s 1,400 parks and gardens flourishing, as you will see at leafy Planten un Blomen park downtown.


    Then, it’s on to Alster Lake, where you will enjoy a leisurely cruise across its serene waters, presenting you with a different perspective of the city. The lake was formed in the 12th century after the Alster River was dammed. Today, small pleasure vessels often sail the waters and joggers follow the paths along the shore.


    Following your cruise, you will resume driving through Hamburg, passing the most iconic landmarks, which miraculously survived a devastating fire in 1842 and World War II bombings. One highlight is certainly St. Michael’s Church, whose soaring clock tower has loomed over the city since the 1680s. However, locals consider the 647-room town hall, a neo-Renaissance masterpiece, to be the symbolic heart of Hamburg. As a contrast to its opulence, you will also visit a modest 17th-century almshouse for the widows of shopkeepers.


    Before returning to the pier, you will have some brief free time in the city center to perhaps pick up a souvenir or two.

    Glide through the Venice of the North in a fitting manner, via glass-roofed canal boat. It’s an incomparable way to experience this cosmopolitan city that stretches over some 70 islands and boasts 60 miles of canals and 1,000 bridges. An obscure port mostly visited by fisherman back in the 13th century, Amsterdam steadily grew in trade importance – blossoming into one of the world’s most important ports as the Dutch Golden Age gained steam. On this relaxed waterway tour, you’ll traverse some of the four concentric canal rings that define the old city center while learning much of the history behind this watery network from your guide. Along the way, expect to pass countless variations on the signature gabled canal house design the city is so famous for. Just as colorful are the procession of houseboats and tiny skiffs tied up in organized randomness along the stone canal banks. The designated route brings you by such major monuments as the National Maritime Museum, magnificent Town Hall (once considered Europe’s largest administrative building).

    Settle in for a panoramic and highly informative drive through Amsterdam before cruising its canals in a glass-roofed boat. The city first developed during medieval times around a dam near the Amstel River, which supposedly gave rise to the name Amsterdam. During the introductory drive around this vibrant capital of the Netherlands, you will see iconic windmills, the acclaimed Tropenmuseum, the historical Jewish Quarter and Java Island, a once-abandoned port that was transformed into a modern urban neighborhood. Despite all these landmarks, Amsterdam—the so-called Venice of the North— may be even more recognized for its network of iconic canals. You will cruise through its famed Canal Ring, a UNESCO World Heritage site that dates to the 17th century. The experience will offer a different perspective of Amsterdam, especially the countless bridges and gabled mansions that lie within this area of canals designed in concentric circles. Afterwards, you will drive to Schiphol Airport for your flight.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • See Amsterdam’s most recognizable landmarks on a panoramic drive through town.
    • Cruise the iconic canals of Amsterdam, parts of which are a UNESCO World Heritage site.
    • Hear enlightening commentary about the history of Amsterdam.

    Discover beautifully preserved Lucca, still within its Renaissance walls and chock full of churches, including a fine cathedral. You’ll see the Leaning Tower of Pisa, along with other impressive structures in Miracle Square. more...

    Almost perfectly preserved Lucca still resides within high walls, though they are now topped by green parkland. Take a guided walk through the old town, with its medieval towers and nearly 100 churches. Stroll from piazza to piazza, and absorb the city’s history through its architecture. The Duomo, Lucca’s Romanesque cathedral, dates from the 12th century and features a façade with elaborate reliefs and columns.


    The Gothic interior includes an image of Christ on the cross, supposedly carved by Nicodemus, a purported witness of the crucifixion. The Duomo also boasts Tintoretto's magnificent painting of the Last Supper. You’ll have free time in Lucca to explore, do some shopping, or sample the local cuisine.


    Once a powerful maritime republic, and a rival to Genoa and Venice, Pisa offers a Renaissance splendor of its own. A short, guided walk leads to the dramatic Miracle Square, with an array of elegant buildings in Pisa’s own Romanesque style.


    Here you’ll find the Campo Santo, a cemetery with some handsome architecture; the Baptistery, with a statue of St. John the Baptist on top of its dome; and the Duomo, Pisa’s medieval cathedral. You’ll recognize its freestanding bell tower immediately as the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Galileo is said to have used the 180-foot tower during his experiments with gravity. Today it leans 14-degrees from perpendicular. Recently reopened, admittance to the tower is limited and is not included in this excursion.
