What you will visit:

Wellington Driving Tour
New Zealand's capital city, the southernmost city on North Island and built around a horseshoe-shaped peninsula, showcases a special blend of heritage buildings, museums and galleries. Surrounded by hilly terrain and with a stunning natural harbor, Wellington boasts a lively seaside atmosphere, and almost every architectural style is represented on its charming streets. From modernist to Victorian, each building has its own style. Natural attractions like Mount Victoria and the Botanical Gardens add beauty to the self-proclaimed "coolest little capital in the world," which combines the culture of the big city with small-town charm.

What you will see along the way:
Begin with a scenic drive along Oriental Bay before you venture inland and make your way to the top of Mt. Victoria. Proceed along Bowen Street to Wellington's impressive Parliament Buildings. Continue past the blooming Botanical Garden that houses the award-winning Lady Norwood Rose Garden and past the Wellington Cathedral before arriving at the former cathedral, Old St. Paul's. Return to the ship by way of Wellington's central business district.

Photo Opportunity:
From the top of Mt. Victoria, you'll be treated to a magnificent panoramic view of the city and harbor. During your drive, you'll see much of the city's varied architecture, including the government complex and the Parliament House, an Edwardian neoclassical building.
