Avviker på 4:30 PM
Located on England's South Coast, Southampton is a city full of surprises. Home to one of the largest ports in Europe, the city has a lot to offer people passing through for the day. Step back in time and explore the old town — walk along the medieval town walls, parts of which date back to 1290. Visit Bargate, a medieval gatehouse built by Normans in the 12th century. Check out SeaCity Museum and learn about what it would have been like to set sail on the Titanic in 1912 — Southampton is where the historic ship left port. Or venture out and explore the Hampshire countryside: Iconic Stonehenge is just a one-hour drive away.

Prehistoric Adventure

Located just an hour from Southampton, Stonehenge is one of the most well-known prehistoric sites in all of Europe. Wander around the miraculous stone circle and transport yourself back in time when Neolithic engineers used only simple tools to build the huge monument — it's believed they hauled those massive stones over 240 miles from Wales without the use of machines.

A Port of Importance

Southampton is home to one of the largest ports in the UK and millions of travelers pass through each year. In 1912, the most famous of those travelers would pass through as they set out to America onboard the Titanic. Southampton's SeaCity museum gives you the opportunity to learn more about the events that happened aboard that famous ship.

Play Knights in Armor

Step back into the medieval era and walk the old walls of the city. Built to protect the town from attack by sea, most of the wall is still standing, leaving visitors a spectacular view of Southampton and the sea. Watch as boats enter the port city, and see how it would have been if you were a knight on watch hundreds of years ago.

Local Cuisine

Head to the pub for a refreshing glass of ale to pair with crispy, mouthwatering fish and chips. If fried food isn't your thing, go in for a salad with fresh watercress, the peppery green that the Hampshire region is famous for. You'll also find upscale fare based on England's most-loved flavors: Try chicken with Indian-inspired vegetable pakora and tandoori puree or braised Hampshire beef with ale cream.

The sun will shine upon you as you enter the harbor of Vigo, the largest city in Spain's autonomous Galicia region. Start your adventure by ascending the Castro Fortress — you can take in views of the city and the lushly forested mountains around it from these granite-walled 17th-century fortifications. Then, learn up about the region at one of Vigo's excellent museums: Museo do Mar Galicia features exhibits on the local oceanography and ecosystems, while the Vigo Museum of Contemporary Art hosts a changing lineup of participatory workshops and installations by innovative artists working today. Later, stretch your legs on the GR-53, a 25-mile path along the coastline and low mountain peaks around the city, or relax by the blue waters of Cies Beach.

Learn about the region's main historical claim to fame, the Camino de Santiago — a pilgrimage leading to the Galician church where, legend has it, the remains of the Apostle James are housed. Or head to Museo do Mar de Galicia, which focuses on the region's seafaring culture and legacy.
Insider tip
Even if you speak Spanish, you'll notice the local language is something a little different: The Galician dialect is a unique blend of Portuguese and Spanish.

Local Cuisine

You'll notice lots of oyster sellers throughout Vigo's city center, but if you're looking for a meal that's less raw, sit down for a casual tapas lunch at Old Town eateries. Highlights include chipirones — grilled baby squid with lemon and herbs — and calamares en su tinta, calamari served in its own ink. Wash it down with a glass of albarino from Rias Baixas, a nearby Galician winemaking region where they produce crisp, dry white wines.
Vigo, Spain, Wicker Basket store

Shopping

You'll find the most picturesque shopping in Vigo amid the seafood sellers or O Calvario Municipal Market.

Or, wander through gardens inspired by Dante's "Inferno."
Insider tip
Tram 28 is the best-known tram line, taking riders through all the must-see neighborhoods, but the trolleys fill up quickly. Opt for a lesser known route to avoid crowds.

La Coruna
Fra 11:00 AM - 5:30 PM
Perched on a rocky peninsula in Spain's northwest, La Coruna is brimming with ancient Roman heritage and maritime history. Head to the Crystal City, located right near the harbor, and check out the galerias — the city is famous for these 19th-century enclosed glass balconies that reflect the glittering waters of the Atlantic. Then, walk the Paseo Maritimo: The promenade will take you past ocean views to the Cidade Vella, the city's old town full of remnants of the ancient and medieval past. Walk along the still-standing remnants of the city's Roman Wall, and climb the green hill to the Tower of Hercules — a Roman lighthouse that's been in active use since the second century A.D.

To the Tower

Visit the Tower of Hercules, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rising between Orzan Bay and Artabro Gulf, it's one of the oldest working lighthouses in the world. It's said that Ireland was discovered from the top of the tower — try to spot it from while you're at the top. Inside you can see remains of its Roman building materials.
Insider tip
Most shops close for an afternoon siesta of two to three hours.

Bring a picnic to the former military fort Monte de San Pedro. Today, the site is a picturesque park where you'll find a maze made of Italian plants, a duck pond, a children's playground and a panoramic elevator that takes you up high for the city's best views.
Insider tip
Most smaller markets (where you can haggle on prices) and souvenir shops will only take cash, not credit cards.
La Coruna, Spain, Grilled Octopus

Local Cuisine

Local shellfish is king in La Coruna. Try pulpo a la gallega, Galician-style octopus served with potatoes and spiced with paprika. Explore Calle Estrella, La Coruna's hot spot for tapas. Must-try small plates include navajas — steamed razor clams and tequenos, a flash-fried dough stuffed with melty cheese. Wash it all down with the city's signature beer, Estrella Galicia.
Insider tip
Get away from the seafront to eat. The food will be just as tasty — but it'll be about half the price.

Southampton
Ankommer 5:30 AM
Located on England's South Coast, Southampton is a city full of surprises. Home to one of the largest ports in Europe, the city has a lot to offer people passing through for the day. Step back in time and explore the old town — walk along the medieval town walls, parts of which date back to 1290. Visit Bargate, a medieval gatehouse built by Normans in the 12th century. Check out SeaCity Museum and learn about what it would have been like to set sail on the Titanic in 1912 — Southampton is where the historic ship left port. Or venture out and explore the Hampshire countryside: Iconic Stonehenge is just a one-hour drive away.

Prehistoric Adventure

Located just an hour from Southampton, Stonehenge is one of the most well-known prehistoric sites in all of Europe. Wander around the miraculous stone circle and transport yourself back in time when Neolithic engineers used only simple tools to build the huge monument — it's believed they hauled those massive stones over 240 miles from Wales without the use of machines.

A Port of Importance

Southampton is home to one of the largest ports in the UK and millions of travelers pass through each year. In 1912, the most famous of those travelers would pass through as they set out to America onboard the Titanic. Southampton's SeaCity museum gives you the opportunity to learn more about the events that happened aboard that famous ship.

Play Knights in Armor

Step back into the medieval era and walk the old walls of the city. Built to protect the town from attack by sea, most of the wall is still standing, leaving visitors a spectacular view of Southampton and the sea. Watch as boats enter the port city, and see how it would have been if you were a knight on watch hundreds of years ago.

Local Cuisine

Head to the pub for a refreshing glass of ale to pair with crispy, mouthwatering fish and chips. If fried food isn't your thing, go in for a salad with fresh watercress, the peppery green that the Hampshire region is famous for. You'll also find upscale fare based on England's most-loved flavors: Try chicken with Indian-inspired vegetable pakora and tandoori puree or braised Hampshire beef with ale cream.
