Highlights of this tour:

  • Vantage point
  • Religious shrine
  • The city’s old quarters
  • A guided tour in the Cathedral

Stunning Views

The first stop is the amazing vantage point for the stunning views of the city. Here you also visit the religious shrine devoted to the Patron Virgin stands. The shrine is completely built in the 18th Baroque fashion of that time. Entrance is free of charge, and although this holy place is accessible with a ramp from the side entrance, entrance may be limited when there is a wedding or ceremony taking place. Also there may be some waiting time for the assistance. 
 

Old Quarters 

Your trip continues to the city’s old quarters, located beside the river and facing the neoclassical Town Council.

The next highlight is a guided tour inside the Cathedral*, which took 400 years to build. Followed by a visit and tour of the local Casino, dated from the late 19th century and currently an exclusive membership for the local elite. Only the ground floor is accessible, as the first floor has steps to enter. After the internal visit of this imposing building, there will be free time to explore the charming cathedral square on your own. This is completely flat and pedestrian.

At the end of the tour, your guide will take you back to the ship or your accommodation.

 
* Cathedral remains closed from 1 to 5 PM
