A Coruña is a port town in the north west of Spain. Here you will find the Tower of Hercules, a lighthouse that has been in operation for 1.800 years! The town itself is an affluent commercial and tourism hub, with plenty of things to see and do. Visit the popular beaches, explore the city centre, or sample some of the many cultural activities. The Aquarium Finisterrae lets you explore the marine life of the region. But if you prefer your fish on a plate, A Coruña’s restaurants can help you out.
La Rochelle is a coastal city on the west coast of France, with three ports offering shelter from the Bay of Biscay.

Popular with cruisers and tourists, the seafront is a place to wine and dine, enjoying the region's top cuisine.
