Founded by Eleanor of Aquitaine in the 14th century, and once a bastion of French Protestantism, this handsome old Atlantic seaport has had a turbulent history.  Today it’s a lively, remarkably well-preserved city with a bustling fishing and yachting harbour, excellent shops and restaurants, and ancient streets lined by traditional 16th and 17th century vaulted arcades.

Day 8: Lorient, France: Arrive early AM, depart late PM

A former German U-Boat base, Lorient played a huge role in the Second World War and was a primary target for Allied bombing raids. Today, the rebuilt city is awash with post 1950’s architecture and a number of museums and galleries to discover and explore.
