Enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of lovely La Coruna when you embark on this 3.5-hour walking tour of the city's historic architecture and gastronomic heritage. Together with your knowledgeable guide, head into town to start your guided pedestrian tour. First, you'll pass Méndez Núnez gardens, perfuming the air for over 150 years with exotic blooms and greenery, en route to lively Plaza de Lugo, a colorful marketplace brimming with produce and fresh seafood. Stroll the stalls and learn the culinary secrets of Galicia. Next, visit two different tapas bars for locally produced wine and traditional savory bites. Refreshed, wander into grand Maria Pita Square and settle into a charming terrace café, where you'll sip an aromatic cup of coffee or tea, followed by a tasting of typical Galician liquors. Join your guide for the short walk back to port or opt to explore independently, making your own way back to the ship
