This morning we will join a local expert to explore Málaga, a city whose history, spanning some 2,800 years, is one of the oldest in the world. Rich in archeological remains and monuments from its Phoenician, Roman, Arabic, and Christian eras, the city itself seems to be a museum. We’ll visit the Alcazaba Fortress, a palatial citadel overlooking the port built in the early 11th century by the Hammudid dynasty. We’ll also explore Gibralfero Castle, constructed by Yusuf I at the beginning of the 14th century. We will then transfer via motorcoach to the port and embark the Aegean Odyssey. After getting your cabin, take some time to freshen up and relax.
Aboard the ship, we’ll have a welcome lunch buffet.
