Seabourn’s UNESCO Partner Tours gives guests access to amazing World Heritage sites and experiences across Europe.
Slip past ropes that keep tourists at bay at Stonehenge or join an architect for a guided tour of Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona as part of Seabourn’s new UNESCO Partner Tours at World Heritage sites.
This northern summer, the cruise line will offer new tours with privileged access and guided explorations on selected cruises in Europe as part of its partnership with UNESCO.
Among the experiences on offer is the chance to walk among the stones of Stonehenge, with a full hour to explore and take photos, and a visit to a 13th-century paper mill plus a cooking lesson at a family lemon orchard on Italy's Amalfi Coast.
In Spain, there's a chance to learn about traditional silk making in Valencia, and a tour of the Sagrada Familia (pictured above) accompanied by an architect.
In Gibraltar, visit to Gortham's Cave, once home to Neanderthals, with experts, and see archaeological finds not available to the general public at the Gibraltar Museum.
Or learn about the archaeology of Malta with a visit to Hagar Qim, the oldest freestanding megalithic temple in Europe, and to the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta.
