Our Cartagena excursion starts from the cruise port (or your hotel) with a panoramic tour in a private adapted minivan that will take you to the famous Punic Wall, where you will learn about the origins of Cartagena’s history. The Punic Wall is one of the first defensive walls of the city. Moreover, it is one of the few remains of the Carthaginian civilization in Spain. The itinerary of our accessible Cartagena full-day shore excursion continues to one of the most important legacies of the Roman period, the great Roman Theater and its Museum. The theater was built between 5 and 1 BC and had a capacity of some 6,000 spectators.
The tour continues with a stroll through the city’s port. The great wall of Charles III surrounds the port. Besides, here the local Isaac Peral made the prototype of a submarine. The submarine is now located in an interesting museum to which you will have entry.
Afterwards, we will visit the historical center. Here you can admire the beautiful examples of modernist architecture of the early twentieth century. Furthermore, you will have free time for a short stroll.
For lunch we drive outside the city to Cabo de Palos village, a coastal village just half an hour from Cartagena where you can eat at a traditional local seafood restaurant (the restaurant has step-free access and offers an adapted toilet).
After lunch, the tour continues with a visit to a local family winery. Here we will learn about the local Cartagenian wine-making process. Besides, we will participate in a wine tasting of different artisan-produced wines together with an assortment of local cheeses and sobrasadas. After a peaceful rest and a detailed explanation of the history of this unique venue and Cartagena´s tradition around wine, you will be picked up to be back at the ship on time.
