    The highlights of this cruise

    Culinary city tour
    Combine a city tour* through Barcelona’s historic quarters such as El Born or Barri Gotic with a taste of traditional Catalan and Spanish tapas specialities. As well as the La Boqueria market hall, you will also visit trendy bars and enjoy some churros, wine and freshly candied almonds. Truly tempting treats!
    Exclusive olive oils
    The quality of Seville’s olive oils is known far beyond the country’s borders. Find out more about olive growing and oil production with a visit to the Basilippo cultural centre**. Take advantage of the chance to sample the oil, which is only produced in small quantities, and purchase some to take home for your own kitchen.
    Unforgettable bicycle tour
    Your easy-going excursion by modern e-bike* will take you along the Guadalquivir and past Seville’s highlights. Discover the city’s most beautiful spots in the fresh air – be it the bullfighting arena, Plaza Espana, the cathedral, the Alcazar, the site of the 1992 World Expo or Maria Luisa Park.
    A jewel in the city’s crown
    The magnificent Las Duenas Palace in Seville is the residence of the Duke of Alba and a visit** to see it for yourself is highly recommended. Marvel at the majestic building with its mix of Gothic and Moorish styles. Inside you will find an extensive art collection that has impressed many famous guests, including Grace Kelly.
    Discover the Alhambra independently
    Enjoy an individual experience of the Alhambra** – the last bastion of the Moors in Spain – during your stay in Malaga. As you explore the Moorish architecture and the enchanting gardens, the guide for your private tour will tell you everything there is to know about the special features and the history of the palace complex with the world-famous lion fountain.

    Your cruise through the western Mediterranean begins with a premiere destination: for the first time, the EUROPA will call at the idyllic SANARY-SUR-MER. As you stroll along the glorious promenade, surrounded by elegant yachts and idyllic palm trees, you will immediately start to notice the typical savoir vivre that France is famous for. The ambience is just as tranquil in SETE. The “Venice of the Languedoc” is surrounded by water on all sides, save for one narrow strip of land. Make the most of your time here by watching the hustle and bustle of the boats on the Canal Royal as you enjoy a portion of local mussels. A rich history and southern French flair lend Montpellier* its charm. The best place to soak up the exciting atmosphere is around the Place de la Comedie, laid out in the style of the Parisian boulevards. Peace and quiet are two things you should not really expect to find in BARCELONA. It’s quite the opposite: the Catalan capital specialises in the Spanish vida loca. Whether you choose to stroll around the shops of the elegant Passeig de Gracia or relax in one of the many bars, take the opportunity to embrace the Mediterranean way of life. Or why not let yourself be inspired by Barcelona’s fantastic architecture, for which the city mainly has Antoni Gaudí to thank. His most well-known works are no doubt the Sagrada Familia basilica*, which has been under construction since 1882, and Park Guell*, which is decorated with countless colourful ceramic mosaics.

    There is plenty to discover in VALENCIA too – especially for the taste buds, since this is the home of the world-famous paella. The aroma of Spain’s national dish fills the busy streets, which are lined with a host of unmissable buildings. The Gothic silk exchange, for example, dates back to the 15th century and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as the headquarters of the Cultural Academy of Valencia. The City of Arts and Sciences, meanwhile, seems to have come straight from the future. Alongside Europe’s largest aquarium, it is also home to a wonderful botanic garden. You can discover this and other gardens along the route with your garden expert, on specially designed excursions*. Once in MALAGA, if you don’t set off on the trail of Pablo Picasso straight away, then it’s worth going on an excursion to discover the region’s Moorish past. Testament to this era are the magnificent palace complexes perched on the cities’ hills – the most well known being the superbly preserved Alcazaba in Malaga and the world-famous Alhambra* in Granada.

    From stone walls edged with battlements, gaze across the horizon of Andalusia, or enjoy the fine beaches of the Costa del Sol. At midnight, your cruise will continue towards GIBRALTAR, where Africa and Europe come almost close enough to touch. The iconic Rock rises up to greet you from afar. Over the centuries it has become home to entire colonies of imported Barbary macaques. Cruise up the majestic Guadalquivir into the country’s interior, as far as SEVILLE. You will have two days and nights here to embrace the Andalusian way of life: in rustic tavernas, from which Flamenco rhythms can be heard until late into the evening, in typical tapas bars or while sampling sherry in nearby Jerez de la Frontera. Enthralled by the fiery spirit of Spain, you will finally reach Lisbon, and from here you will set off on your journey home.
