Alexander von Humboldt II:
Palma de Mallorca (ES) - Sardinia (IT)

17 August - 28 August 2016

Ports

Palma de Mallorca, capital of the Balearic Islands, was first settled by the Romans. Evidence of over two thousand years of history can still be seen all over town. Visit the unique Bellver Castle, The Royal Palace of La Almundaina, and Palma’s silk exchange as examples of the town’s architecture. Palma de Mallorca is a festive town with plenty to see and do. Over 20 million tourists visit the city each year, but there are plenty of opportunities to escape the masses and explore for yourself.

With a rugged landscape of limestone, granite ranges and oak forests filled with pink flamingos, ponies and wild sheep, Sardinia has a good deal of untamed wilderness — despite the ultra-chic resorts of the Costa Smeralda and the cosmopolitan Cagliari dotted with designer boutiques. Add the ancient cities to the list of attractions, and you have enough diversity to enchant travelers of all ages.
