Historic Cities & Art Centers of Coastal Europe
September 6-17, 2015
Tour type: CRUISE
On the short stretch of coastline between the Baltic Sea and the mouth of the
Seine River lies some of the world’s most revered art and architecture. This
tucked-away corner of Europe has experienced a prosperity disproportionate
to its small size. The Netherlands and Belgium were at the center of world
commerce in the 17th century, when Europe began extensive trading with India
and East Asia, and the wealth that accumulated in these countries led to what
historian Simon Schama called “an embarrassment of riches.” In September
2015 we invite you to explore the legacy of this golden age on a leisurely cruise
from Copenhagen to Rouen, exploring this region’s great cultural contributions
to the Western world.
