Explore Majorca's rugged interior on the 'Tren de Soller'. This is no ordinary train journey. It's a vintage electric train that's been chugging through the countryside since the 1920s - heading from Palma to Soller, a gorgeous little village on the northwestern coast. The old-fashioned train ride, which lasts an hour, has become Majorca’s most popular attraction and the island really makes the most of its chance to shine. You'll trundle by almond and olive groves. Slide in slow-motion through dinky villages. And clickety-click past pine-clad peaks. When you arrive in Soller, you take a walking tour of the town to catch a glimpse of houses that date back to the 14th-century. All before enjoying some free time for shopping - this place is famous for its beautiful ceramics, jewellery and bakers all crammed round a bustling main square.
This is a great way to see the highlights of Majorca’s capital city. Start the day with a photo-stop at the 14th-century Bellver Castle. Crowning a hill, it commands spectacular views over Palma and its cosmopolitan marina. Continue on to the Gothic Quarter, which is more than 750 years old. Carry on for a visit of the Gothic Cathedral. Here, marvel at its rose-coloured stained glass windows and let your guide tell you all about the history of the church, which took over 300 years to build. After that, enjoy some free time for souvenir shopping. Then, head back to the ship, stopping along the way to get a photo of the Almudaina Palace.
A fantastical collection of cathedral-like caves, subterranean lakes and dripping stalactites form the Drach Caves. On this tour, you’ll find out why they’ve become Majorca’s most popular attraction. After driving here past picture-postcard villages and monastery-topped hills, you’ll take the steps down into the huge underground chambers. The pathways wind through weird and wonderful rock formations before fetching up at an amphitheatre that’s home to the world’s largest underground lake – Lake Martel. You won’t be the only ones down here, either – classical musicians will serenade you as they row across the water. Afterwards, you’ll wrap up the day at Porto Cristo. This charm-packed village is a honeypot for yachters thanks to its deep-cut harbour. Free time here will give you the chance to relax on one of the sea-view bar terraces or wander along the smart promenade.
