Add To Plan

Get acquainted with Natal on this tour that highlights both old and new and includes time on your own to do some shopping.

Boarding your coach at the pier, you'll commence with a drive through the streets of old Natal, which is also called Ribeira. Here, you'll see turn-of-the-century buildings such as the Alberto Maranhão Theater and heading downtown to Praça André de Albuquerque, you will pass by the Governor's Palace, Justice Hall and City Hall.

In complete contrast to this is the New Natal area, which you will next discover, beginning with Ponta Negra Beach. Here, you'll find one of Natal's most famous landscapes, the Morro do Careca Dune. From here, you'll travel down Via Costeira, an avenue that links Ponta Negra Beach to the downtown beaches. Although packed with hotels, you'll still enjoy some marvelous views. You'll also have a photo stop near Tres Reis Magos, a 16th century building that was once a former fortress, before proceeding on to Centro do Turismo. This former prison has been converted into a handicraft market and the cells that once housed prisoners, have been transformed into shops that display the best artisans' workmanship. You'll have approximately 40-minutes of free time here to further explore on your own or do some shopping before it's time to rejoin your coach and transfer back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of walking, mainly at the guests' discretion during the stops. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
