Swap the cruise port for the sights of Palma de Mallorca, and head out on a 3.5-hour bike tour of the city. Hop onto your bike and follow your guide through the Mallorcan capital’s historical streets at a leisurely pace. See must-see city attractions such as Palma Cathedral and learn about the history of the island’s captivating capital. Upgrade to include a visit to a popular, local tapas bar and complete your experience with three tantalizing plates, paired with a drink of your choice.
Meet your guide off of your cruise ship at Palma de Mallorca port. Then, put on your helmet and pedal away through the streets. The pace is leisurely, allowing you to listen to your guide and soak up all the sights as you go.
Follow a bicycle path down to the old harbor, and continue along the seafront and through the winding streets of Palma de Mallorca Old Town. Admire grand churches such as the Basilica of St Francesco, cut through Parc de la Mar, and pedal alongside the old city walls.
After listening to tales about the city’s history, make a stop by Palma Cathedral (La Seu) to pose for photos in front of its majestic Gothic facade. Hear how the cathedral was built on the site of an old Arab mosque, and learn about Antoni Gaudi — the Modernist architect responsible for many of the cathedral’s interior features.
Continue through Plaza España and several picturesque streets before stopping outside a city tapas bar — one of the locals’ favorites. If you have upgraded to include tapas, hop off your bike and head inside. Alternatively, make your way back to the start point, passing along Borne Avenue and soaking up sights of Bellver Castle and the port.
Inside the tapas bar, enjoy a drink (perhaps a glass of wine, a beer or a soft drink) and enjoy three plates of tapas. As with most authentic Spanish tapas bars, the menu changes daily. However, you can expect some delectable local treats, perhaps a grazing plate of local cheese and ham or patatas bravas (crispy Canarian potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce).
With your appetite sated and your thirst quenched, jump back on your bike and, following the same route as described above, cycle together with your guide back to the port in time for your cruise departure.
