Over the last few weeks, I’ve shown you some of the ways your family can soak up the Mediterranean sun, culture and cuisine on our cruises this summer. Today, in my last post of this series, I’ll give you recommendations for Port Adventures in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, the capital city of the Balearic Islands.
Bike Ride Through Palma de Mallorca – An intimate way to explore the city, this bicycle tour through the streets of Palma de Mallorca is a blast for adults and families with older children. Hop on a bike and use pedal power to navigate the city, starting with a ride along the seafront until you reach Park de la Mar. Next, pedal alongside the ancient city walls, enjoy free time at a magnificent cathedral and stop at the city’s main attractions where your guide will explain their highlights and history.
Valldemossa, Deià and Sóller – This full day tour is your opportunity to visit three charming villages in the scenic Serra de Tramuntana mountain range on Mallorca’s northwest coast. Your first stop is in the village of Valldemossa for a walking tour, a delicious lunch to savor the area’s culinary flavors and free time to explore the fairy-tale surroundings. Next up is Na Foradada for a visit to Son Marroig, a historic seaside mansion that once belonged to the Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria, followed by time to explore the village of Sóller. A departure just for adults is also available.
Macià Batle Wine Cellar – On this adult-only excursion, you’ll travel to Santa Maria for wine tasting at the award-winning Macià Batle, a winery that specializes in the native grapes of Mallorca. This prestigious bodega has been producing wine for more than 150 years. Along the way to the winery, enjoy magnificent views of the coastline when you stop at Bellver Castle, a striking circular fortress built in the 14th century and one of only a few of its kind in Europe.
