One of the Mediterranean's most beautiful cities at your feet.

Day one:

On the morning of your first day, discover a city that is open to the sea. What better way than with a trip on the tourist bus? For a memorable visit, start at the Plaza de la Reina, head through the gardens of S’Hort del Rei and carry on along the old city walls. Next to the imposing Gothic Cathedral you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Parc de la Mar, the cultural space of Ses Voltes and the bay, as well as visiting the Almudaina Palace or the Bishop's Palace.Calle Palau Reial leads to Plaza de Cort, where the iconic City Hall is located. From this point you can head along some of the city's most distinctive shopping streets towards El Born, a delightful street full of exclusive shops. Take a peaceful stroll and visit the exhibitions and tourist information office in the elegant Casal Solleric. Heading towards the sea you will arrive at the old fish market. This beautiful journey concludes with a visit to the crypt and museum at the Church of the Santa Cruz.For lunch you can choose from the extensive offer available in the neighbourhood of La Llotja, El Born and Porta de Santa Catalina.Afterwards, you can combine shopping on Calle Unió, Plaza de Weyler and Jaume III with a visit to Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art. Another option is to take the tourist bus to Bellver castle, the old giant in the west who has protected Palma since the 16th century.To experience Palma's nightlife, we recommend dinner on the ever-lively Paseo Marítimo.

Start with a visit to the majestic Palau March and its attractive museum. After visiting the patios of Can Oms, Can Bordils and Can Olesa.

The church of Santa Eulàlia is located in the square of the same name, close to the Casal de Can Vivot. From here you can walk to the emblematic Plaça Major, stopping to admire the Modernist façades of Can Forteza and El Águila.(The easiest way to visit Palma's charming patios is to arrange a guided visit with any of the companies that organize these trips. These are listed in the “useful information” section. By doing this you can ensure that you will be able to access them, as many are privately owned, and so can discover these historic architectural gems that welcome you like the city's true hosts.)You can enjoy a meal in any of the restaurants close to the popular Olivar market.Bus no. 3 takes you to the unmissable Pilar i Joan Miró Foundation. Another option is shopping, starting on La Rambla and heading to Plaza de España, taking a break in a café in the area, and along the way visiting the old Gran Hotel (a Modernist jewel), seeing the façades of the Palace of Justice and the Casa Casasayas and the Juan March Museum of Contemporary Spanish Art.
