Itinerary

Day 1 : Boston

-- - 3:00 pm

The history and brick-laid beauty of Boston is easy to enjoy. Just follow the Freedom Trail past the Old North Church, Paul Revere Park, Fanieul Hall, the Commons, Old Ironsides and more landmarks of America's birth. Across the Charles River is Cambridge and Harvard. You can also venture to Marblehead and Salem to the south, or Lexington and Concord to the north. Back in town, you have your choice of clam chowder at the wharf, or great Italian food in the North End.

Day 2 : At Sea

Day 3 : Sydney

8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Nova Scotia's second largest city, Sydney is located on Cape Breton Island. While the tradition is definitely Scottish, one of the highlights of a visit to Sydney is the restored French fortress at Louisbourg-where shopkeepers and inhabitants dress, live and produce goods in the tradition of the 18th century. At Sydney, you'll also find some of Eastern Canada's most beautiful parks and trails. The Alexander Graham Bell Museum is worth a visit, too.

10:00 am - 11:00 pm

This pristine European island is filled with glaciers, volcanoes, and hot, mineral-rich springs to explore. Native Icelanders have a remarkably rich history and culture, and would love to share it with you - they are great storytellers. Stroll through the charming Austurvollur Square, and be sure to stop in one of the many cafes for some of the freshest seafood you''ll find anywhere. Or visit the mighty Gullfoss or "Golden Waterfall," the most dramatic cascade in Europe.

Day 15 : Santos (sao Paulo)/BRAZIL

8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Santos is the port for Sao Paulo, the largest city in South America and the economic heart and soul of Brazil. Originally built as a Jesuit mission in the 1500's, the city's towering skyscrapers and a bustling population of 11 million now lend it the air of a subtropical New York.

8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Ascend the hillside streets to the Citadel, a star-shaped fort built in 1749, where the traditional Noon Gun recalls the British garrison. Visit the restored wharves of Historic Properties, now filled with shops, and Halifax Public Gardens, the oldest formal Victorian gardens in North America. Or drive out along the Lighthouse Route to the rustic fishing village of Peggy's Cove, for postcard-perfect Nova Scotian scenery: lobster pots, fishing boats, and a shining Atlantic seascape just offshore.

Day 24 : Bar Harbor

9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Drawn by the pines, granite shores, fresh lobster and stunning views from Cadillac Mountain, captains of industry once kept summer homes here. The charming little town, and all the rest, remain. And the rocky boulder beaches on its shoreline are now Acadia National Park, a preserved expanse of vintage Down East scenery.
