On this shore excursion we will pick you up outside the Port of Palma de Mallorca cruise area by coach or mini bus and take you away from the hustle and bustle of the city and up into the mountain villages of Valldemossa and Soller. During the journey you will have gorgeous views of the Mediterranean countryside and the picturesque villages.
Our first stop will be in Valldemossa, one of Mallorca’s most historical villages, boasting the Carthusian Monastery, retreat of Chopin, and the only village in Mallorca to be the birthplace of a saint. In Valldemossa you will have free time for approximately one and a half hours, and you can choose to either spend that with our guide, who will take you on a guided walk through the winding streets and lanes and give you plenty of information about the village’s fascinating history, or you can go off yourself for a relaxing brunch at one of the local cafes in the main square.
We will then take you for a drive over the mountains from where you will have stunning views of the dramatic west coast cliffs and we will head down to the splendid Soller Valley.
You will have free time in Soller, one of the most architecturally delightful villages of Mallorca, where you can enjoy beautiful modernist buildings, such as Soller’s famous church, and where you can soak up the atmosphere of the typical Mallorcan life. Accompany our guide for a tour of Soller, or explore on your own, again, the choice is yours.
This shore excursion from the Port of Palma de Mallorca lasts five and a half hours and sometimes there is time to visit Palma city and cathedral before return to the port.
