GETTING TO CADIZ

Your ship docks at the Alphonso XIII Quay at the Port of Cadiz. A cafeteria and public phones are available inside the cruise terminal. You’ll find much more information on the port at its informative web site at http://www.puertocadiz.com. The city center is a mere 10-minute walk from the pier. If you’re in need of a map, look about for the small tourist office at the port. Disembarkation time is typically 9:15 am (7-night cruise) or 8:00 am (11-night cruise) with an all-aboard time around 5:45 pm (7-night) or 4:45 pm (11-night).

GETTING AROUND CADIZ

If your main interest lies in Cadiz, you’ll find it easiest—and most interesting—to walk into town and wander about. It’s difficult to get lost here—the city is not that large and it’s easy to keep an eye on the waterfront. To download and print a good map before your visit, go to https://www.city-sightseeing.com, search on Cadiz, and download the Tour Map. • If you want to visit Seville on your own, take the train from the station just off the Plaza de Sevilla (see map)—it’s a 15-minute walk from the port. Expect to pay about €8/person; the trip takes an hour and 45 minutes, each way. For train schedules, visit http://www.renfe.es.• Sightseeing buses that let you hop on and hop off at popular spots around town are available here, as they are in many cities popular with tourists, for €12/adult and €6/child. • Should you want to explore the surrounding areas on your own, you have time in this port to rent a car—you’ll find an AutoEurope (http://www.autoeurope.com) car rental agency at the train station. • There’s little need for a taxi here, but they exist.

STAYING SAFE IN CADIZ

We’re going to sound like a broken record, but your biggest threat in Cadiz, as in other Mediterranean ports, is pickpocketing. Carry the minimum and keep it well concealed. Another caution is on over-imbibing the local beer, which may have a higher alcohol content than other brews you may be used to. And don’t forget your sun protection—the Mediterranean sun can be harsh in the summer.

SHOPPING IN CADIZ

The best shopping boulevard in Cadiz is along Calle Calumela, between Calle Topete and Calle San Francisco (see map)—you’ll find many boutiques here. For a large selection, try El Corte Ingles department store at Avenida Cortes de Cadiz . You’ll find a traditional outdoor market near Plaza de las Flores—this is your best bet for local handicrafts. Look for the local specialties: sherry, flamenco dresses and fans, ceramics, dolls, leather goods, blankets, and saddles.
