Cadiz Cruise Port (Puerto de Cádiz)
After docking at the Port of Cádiz, take a hop-on hop-off bus tour to enjoy top sights such as the baroque Cádiz Cathedral or head to lovely Victoria Beach. For a more physical experience, walk to the Castelo San Sebastian for fantastic views of the city.
Cádiz is also a great jumping-off point for excursions to other towns and cities in Andalucia. Head to romantic Seville, which is a roughly 1.5-hour train ride away, or tour the sherry-making town of Jerez, also famous as the breeding place for Andalusian horses.
