This mostly panoramic tour provides you with the perfect opportunity to gain a glimpse of many of La Coruña's landmarks.

Starting off, you will commence on a panoramic drive around La Coruña, which includes passing by the gardens of Los Cantones which were built on reclaimed land. Be sure to watch for The Galleries houses whose windows reflect sunlight, and whose façades were built by fishermen out of wood and glass. You will also pass the San Anton Castle before making a stop at the Tower of Hercules. Now declared a National Monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Tower was built by the Romans in the 2nd century AD by the order of the Emperor Trajan. It is one of the oldest lighthouses in the world that is still in operation and can be seen from 32 miles away. You will be afforded free time to walk around the monument and the Park before continuing on.

From here, it's pleasant stroll along the promenade, passing by the new refurbished Aquarium of La Coruña, the Museum of Mankind and the Millennium Obelisk made of glass. From the wonderful vantage point of Mount San Pedro, you will be treated to some marvelous views of the ocean, the tower of Hercules and the city, as well as seeing the cannons here that have a range of 20 miles.

Before returning to the ship, you will visit the delightful Maria Pita Square, named for the lady who defeated Sir Francis Drake, and have time on your own to further explore or shop for a souvenir. The choice is yours to return to the pier with your guide, or stay in town and make your own way back to the ship at your leisure.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 45 minutes of walking, some of it over cobblestone surfaces. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; flat, comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunglasses are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
