    1 Saturday, July 9, 2022 Boston, USA Embark 5:00 PM
    View of Boston, USA

    Boston is the capital and largest city in Massachusetts, USA. Calling this quaint and delightful city the 'Athens of America' might seem a bit pretentious, but the city's 19th-century glory radiates through its grand architecture, and its world-renowned academic and cultural institutions. Disastrous 'urban renewal' projects in the 1950s provoked such a furious backlash that Boston now has some of the best preserved historic buildings and neighbourhoods in the country. Compact, walkable, historic and clean, the city blends old-world beauty and modern convenience. Read more about Boston, USA

    Bar Harbour, nestled on the east side of Mt. Desert Island in Maine New England, USA is said to be a magical mixture of romance, adventure. With its rock-bound coast and soaring granite cliffs, the stonewall-lined and tree-covered road leading you into our town, to the sweeping vistas from atop Cadillac Mountain, there is a special mystique to Bar Harbor that has welcomed visitors for over a hundred years. It is also worth noting that Bar Harbor is home to the USA's eighth oldest golf course which wraps itself between the mountains and the shore, and visitors can try to sink a putt through a waterfall.

    Rotterdam - located at the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta on the North Sea - is the largest port in Europe, and a perfect starting point for excursions to the cities of Holland. Few cities rebounded as quickly as Rotterdam following the Nazi invasion, which levelled the medieval heart of town, burning most of it to the ground. Today some of Europe's most bold contemporary architecture, such as the unique Cube Houses, can be found amid classic 18th and 19th C buildings in this, the greatest comeback city in the world. The city also houses the 186 m tall Euromast that has long been a major tourist attraction. Read more about Rotterdam, Netherlands
