This will present another opportunity to interact with the locals and ask about their traditional livelihood, which new technology continues to influence.

    Granada’s Soul of Andalucía

    Granada (Malaga), Spain

    Duration 9 hours

    Discover the charms of Granada, the architecturally stunning capital of the Andalusia region, by exploring a magnificent palace, the Royal Chapel and the city’s oldest quarter.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for scenic drive inland to Granada, a city likely named for the Spanish word for pomegranate, a fruit so abundant it is depicted on Granada’s coat of arms. Or Granada may have derived from its Moorish name, as the city was the Moors’ last stronghold before falling to Spain’s Catholic monarchs in 1492.


    Granada features a wealth of extraordinary architecture such as your first stop, the Carlos V Palace within the Alhambra complex. Construction on the palace began in the early 16th century, following a Renaissance ground plan with a circular courtyard within a square building—the only one of its kind in Spain. Amazingly, a monarch has never lived in the palace, nor did it even have a roof until 1957.


    Walking a bit farther, you will soon arrive in the labyrinthine streets of the Albayzin quarter (down part of the quarter), the city’s oldest section. UNESCO has deemed it a World Heritage site for its harmonious blend of Moorish and Andalusian architecture.


    Nearby, you will find the glorious Royal Chapel, the final resting place of Spanish monarchs such as Queen Isabella and Kind Ferdinand. Be sure to see the chapel’s mausoleum, spectacular altarpieces and ornate grilles before enjoying free time and perhaps lunch on your own in the surrounding historical area.


    Afterwards, you will drive back to Malaga.


    Need to Know:

    Note: Tour does not include tickets inside the Alhambra-General Life area. Due to traffic conditions, the tour duration may vary from 8-9 hours. This tour includes approximately 2½ hours of walking, some of it over cobblestone surfaces plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time.

    Castle of St. Peter

    Bodrum, Turkey

    Duration 2 1/2 hrs

    Explore the Medieval beauty of the Bodrum Peninsula during this memorable visit to the Castle of St. Peter.


    Few sights match those encountered along the Bodrum Peninsula. With rolling hills on both sides, and colorful yachts and sailing vessels docked right outside its walls, the seaside Castle of St. Peter is truly a sight to behold. The towers and battlements of the castle tower over the town, and serve as a reminder of its storied past.


    Depart the pier for the walk to the Castle of St. Peter, and a guided tour of the Museum of Underwater Archaeology housed inside. The Castle was built in the 1400s by the Knights of St. John, a group of expatriates that began in the 11th century with a church and hospital in Jerusalem. Although the Knights observed the Catholic religion, they denied care to no one. When they decided to build the Castle of St. Peter, they instructed their builders to remove marble, stone and other usable material from the tomb of King Mausolos, or Halicarnassus Mausoleum, for use in the castle's construction.


    Upon arrival at the castle, you will pass through its seven gates embellished with coats of arms and inscriptions. During your walking tour, you will visit the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. The museum attracts hundreds of thousands of annual visitors, has earned an award for Museum of the Year and appeared in National Geographic magazine. You will marvel at the exhibits of submarine archaeology, including amphora and large, copper ingots recovered from a shipwreck just offshore.


    Following your castle and museum tour, you will walk back to the pier.


    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes approximately 2 hours of moderate to strenuous walking and there are stairs to negotiate at the castle. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with walking difficulties. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

    Duration 4 1/2 hrs

You are sure to see plenty of locals and expats relaxing on the benches and strolling the winding garden paths. After a traditional cup of espresso-like coffee known locally as “bica,” you will ride the bus to the Principe Real neighborhood.

    WALKING TOUR OF PAAMIUT

    Paamiut (Frederikshab), Greenland

    Duration 1 1/2 hrs

    OVERVIEW

    Escorted around town by a local, you’ll be introduced to life in Greenland’s eighth-largest fishing village. Suffice it to say, rush hour is no big challenge in this burg. But living in Paamiut has its rewards for the 1,500-or-so souls who call it home. Their scattered skyline is colorful, their blue-black mountain backdrop is stunning – they even have a handsome stave church, one hotel and a supermarket. The fishing is excellent, the mitten-makers are busy, and the wildlife is contented. Minke and humpback whales swim by in the fjord, while white-tailed sea eagles (Greenlanders call them “Nattoralik”) guard the sky and bring good luck to those who spot them. A stop at a workshop that crafts coats from sealskin will provide a glimpse into the unique local economy – in Greenland, seal meat is a mainstay in the diet and no by-products are wasted.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Stroll the streets of tiny Paamiut with a local who knows its story and residents personally.
    • You will have an opportunity to view colonial harbor, museum area (no interior visit included), protected buildings, Church, Culture area, institution area, trade and administration area.
