Begin your adventure with a panoramic drive and a leisurely tour of A Coruña. Admire the Riazor and Orzen Beaches, the House of Mankind (a work of Japanese architect Arata Isozaki), and the Finisterrae Aquarium.
Take some photos at the Tower of Hercules, built in the 2nd century by the Emperor Trajan. This is the oldest Roman lighthouse in the world and, unbelievably, it is still in use today. Re-board the coach and follow the coastline past the window houses that gave A Coruña its Crystal City nickname. Watch for the Archaeological Museum housed in San Anton Castle and the Mendez Nuñez Gardens.
Next, leave your motor coach and make your way on foot down the narrow cobblestone streets to Plaza Maria Pita, a vast pedestrian square surrounded by terraced cafés and arcades. Delight in the friendly and social atmosphere of a local Spanish bar, where you are treated to tapa-snacks of local cheese, crusty homemade bread, cured ham and local specialties complemented by Galician wine. Tapas are a very important part of Spanish culture and are often enjoyed by locals at the pub with a glass of wine or during a quick stop at a restaurant between meals.
Afterwards, walk the short distance back to the harbour with your guide or take the opportunity to browse on your own in the quaint Old Town before returning to the pier at your leisure.
