Cultures collide in Toledo. Ancient minarets dance across the skyline, the call to prayer echoing amongst lanes dotted with monasteries. Romanesque art is found a few meters away from a medieval stone bridge and most importantly, a striking 14th-century synagogue juxtaposes with the 13th-century brickwork of Toledo Cathedral.

The city of Bordeaux seems enchantingly stuck in time. Bakeries leave toasty smells on street corners. You will be led to the stunning Mont St.Michel, a magical island topped by a gravity-defying medieval monastery.
Meanwhile, Mont Saint Michel Abbey, one of France’s most iconic images: the slender spires, stout ramparts and rocky slopes of it rising dramatically from the sea or perhaps towering over sands laid bare by the receding tide.
