Monte Carlo to Southampton Cruise - 12 nights in May 2012.

Monte Carlo to Southampton, 12 - nights
The beaches are beautiful in Palma De Mallorca, but save time for the charms of the northwest and the interior: caves, bird sanctuaries, monasteries and medieval cities, local museums, outdoor cafés, and village markets.  Cadiz, Spain is near Andalusia, which is Spain's fourth-largest city and an olé cliché of matadors, flamenco, tapas bars, gypsies, geraniums, and strolling guitarists.  Sail to Portimao, Portugal located on the estuary of the Arade River then cruise to La Coruña, the largest city in Spain's Galicia region, and among the country's busiest ports. The remote Galicia area is tucked into the northwest corner of the Iberian Peninsula, surprising visitors with its green and misty countryside that is so much unlike other parts of Spain.  Bilbao, Spain's old treasures still quietly line the banks of the rust-color Nervión River but Frank Gehry's stunning museum, Norman Foster's sleek subway system, and the glass Santiago Calatrava footbridge have all helped foment a cultural revolution.  If you're a wine connoisseur, Bordeaux is still the doorway to paradise: pretty Sauternes and Graves lie to the south; Pomerol and St-Émilion to the east; the flat and dusty Médoc peninsula to the northwest, looking across the Gironde Estuary at the vineyards of Bourg and Blaye. Le Verdon-sur-Mer, northwest of Bordeaux, is in the region which is synonomous with the wine trade. It's waiting to be explored and is easily reached from the port.  End the cruise amongst the Cathedrals of Southampton.
