Cape Town

Today Cape Town, South Africa, shows a new face of cultural fusion between Africa and Europe, although the memory of the difficult years of apartheid are still alive. The first steps of your excursion to Cape Town will be to the District Six Museum, an exhibition created in the old residential area of the African population where residents were forcibly removed after it was declared ‘white’ territory. With this project the district came back to life and has become the symbol of apartheid history. On your cruise to Cape Town, you can include a hike in the peninsula that goes from the city to the lighthouse at Cape Point and to the famous Cape of Good Hope. It won't be the real tip of Africa, but for sure you’ll see some whales here. In addition to whale watching, a cruise to Cape Town offers you the opportunity to wander through the beautiful flowers of the Kirstenbosch botanical gardens and among the markets and shops of the Victoria and Albert seafront. When you arrive with Costa Cruises at the port of Cape Town you'll understand the power of nature that dominates on this land. On the horizon stands the flat summit of Table Mountain, a real terrace over the city and Robben Island, reached by a funicular.
