Cruise EUX1434

15.08.2018 - 15.08.2018

0 days (0 days cruise only)

    Enjoy freedom that takes you places on a journey through the southern Mediterranean that concludes in Lisbon. Explore the green island of Corfu on a mountain bike tour* or embark on a sea kayak adventure* to discover Comino, Malta’s seldom-visited neighbouring island. On Sicily, be swept away by the magnificent palaces of Syracuse and a Jeep tour* at the foot of Mount Etna. Palermo is the political and cultural hub of this large Mediterranean island, and the cathedral – containing the sarcophagus of Frederick II – is worth the visit alone. On Spain’s Costa Calida lies the town of Cartagena, steeped in history and with fascinating contrasts between its Roman amphitheatre, art nouveau houses and Cathedral Murcia*. Lisbon, the proud city on the Tagus River, forms the finale of your spectacular Mediterranean odyssey.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Nauplia/Peloponnese/Greece , 7.00 – 21.00 hrs

    Small shops, tavernas and cafes – where you can spend several relaxing hours – beckon underneath the Venetian tower fortifications. The digs at Mycenae*, formerly one of the most important cities in Greece and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, promise unforgettable moments. In Corinth*, set off on a boat trip along the famous canal, six-and-a-half kilometres long and lined by steep walls.

     

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Relaxation at sea

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Kerkyra/Corfu/Greece, 8.00 – 17.00 hrs

    With its Mediterranean climate and lush vegetation, the second-largest of the Ionian Islands is also known as “the Green Island”. Explore Corfu by Jeep* or discover traces of its royal past with a guide*. Or follow in Sissi’s footsteps: once upon a time, Empress Elisabeth of Austria commissioned the Achilleon*, a building surrounded by magnificent gardens with a sculpture park.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Syracuse/Sicily/Italy, 12.00 – 22.00 hrs

    Once Sicily’s most powerful city, its picturesque old town – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – never fails to impress. The central Piazza Archimede is surrounded by grand palazzi – immerse yourself in the vibrant lives of the locals. Or enjoy a Jeep tour* at the foot of Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Valletta/Malta, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Erected by the Grand Masters of the Knights of Malta, Valletta’s imposing walls defy the ages. In the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, historic sites such as St John’s Co-Cathedral and numerous cafes entice you to explore and relax. Or experience history on a bicycle* – for late risers.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    La Goulette (Tunis)/Tunisia, 12.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Another UNESCO World Heritage Site is waiting to astound you in La Goulette: the Arabian old town of Tunis. A world of fairy tales, just as in 1,001 Nights, with interconnected alleyways and small stalls selling rugs, furniture and oriental jewellery. Set out after the traces of history and visit the Bardo Museum* and the old town: the museum displays treasures from the age of Carthage and houses the largest collection of Greek and Roman mosaics in the country. You can get even closer to the Carthaginian civilisation on a trip to Carthage*. The ruins of the former master of the Mediterranean reflect the splendour of the past.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Palermo/Sicily/Italy, 9.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Palermo is Sicily’s political and cultural hub. The cathedral, which contains the sarcophagus of Frederick II, is worth the visit alone. The catacombs in the Capuchin Crypt*, in which the mummified remains of many families of the high nobility are interred, are a fascinatingly eerie testimony of human mortality. Alternatively, talk a walk through the coastal town of Cefalu*, idyllically situated between the sea and the 300-metre-high Rocca.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Relaxation at sea

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

Alternatively, gain a fascinating insight into ancient times in Tipaza and the Mausoleum of Mauretania*.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Cartagena/Spanien, 9.00 – 19.00 hrs

    Founded by the Carthaginians, this town on the Costa Calida – which is best explored on foot* – has a chequered past shaped by the Romans, Byzantines and Arabs. From the Casa de la Fortuna, your route will take you to the Roman amphitheatre – a contrast to the Calle Mayor boulevard lined with art nouveau houses. With a 90-metre-high tower rising majestically up to heaven, Cathedral Murcia* is an architectural masterpiece. This unusual house of God combines architectural styles from five eras.

After one last night on board the EUROPA 2, your spectacular journey draws to a close.
