Embark on a thrilling Shore Excursion from Brest France Port of Call and discover Concarneau town & the village of Pont-Aven

In the morning we will come and pick you up at your Cruise Port in Brest. Meet your English speaking driver who will go over the itinerary and program of the day with you. Then board your comfortable air conditioned minivan and begin your journey towards the town of Concarneau. 

Concarneau Town Visit

Arrive in Concarneau a large fishing port town. Here, you will be fascinated by both the town that is enclosed within massive fortifications and the daily life that goes on either at the port or along the white sandy beaches. The historical center is a jewel that can be discovered by foot as you stroll through the narrow streets or on top of the remparts. Enjoy some free time in the town for personal discovery and lunch. After lunch, it will be time to head for the village of Pont-Aven

Pont-Aven Village visit

In the afternoon, arrive in Pont-Aven. The village became world famous when Paul Gauguin, the painter, decided to set foot here followed by other painters due to the exceptional quality of the light that could be found here. Thus was born the School of Pont-Aven that regroups a large number of painters from France or abroad such as the american painters Robert Wylie, Charles Way, Earl Shinn and Howard Roberts. The main painting movements that can be linked to the School of Pont-Aven are Synthetism and Post-impressionism. During your stop here, we strongly recommend you take time to visit the museum of Pont-Aven that has gathered a fine collection of art works of the period.

After the visit we will drive back to your Cruise Ship in Brest and that will be the end of our services.
