Things To Do

in Tampa

CULTURE FIX

Stroll along the Tampa Riverwalk and see where it leads you. You might explore interactive exhibits at the Tampa Bay History Centre, or try stand-up paddleboarding from the Sail Pavilion. Tampa Museum of Art’s collections range from ancient to modern – and the Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is home to splash fountains, a playground and skyline views.

HIT THE SAND

A short 30-minute drive west of the city centre lands you along the Gulf of Mexico coast, which is fringed by a string of sugary beaches. Clearwater Beach and St Pete Beach both offer an upbeat seaside atmosphere, while Caladesi Island State Park and Fort DeSoto Park provide serene shoreline settings.

SEA WATCH

Enter the Florida Aquarium to encounter over 20,000 species of aquatic plants and animals. Cruise to Tampa and see river otters on the Florida Wetlands Trail and ring-tailed lemurs on the Journey to Madagascar. Then say hello to goliath grouper, stingrays, reef fishes, sea turtles and sharks in the Bays & Beaches habitat.

LOCAL CUISINE

Tampa’s food scene stems from a fusion of Cuban, Spanish, Italian and Floribbean influences. Local raw bars serve up fresh shrimp, oysters, scallops and grouper from the Gulf of Mexico. The Cuban sandwich— piled with Genoa salami— is a city signature. For a taste of authentic Florida Cracker cuisine, try sofkee porridge, pilau (rice cakes) or fried alligator tail during your next Tampa cruise.

SHOPPING

Pick up tropical clothing and Florida-inspired souvenirs at the outdoor Channelside Bay Plaza, right at the port. Head to Hyde Park Village for upmarket boutique shops, and pop into local sportswear outfitter Salt Pines. Nothing beats Ybor City when it comes to quirky vintage shops and hand-rolled cigars.

INSIDER TIP

The vintage, air-conditioned TECO Line Tram can transport you between central Tampa, Channelside and Ybor City, with 11 stations along a 2.7-mile line. Tickets can be purchased at the stations.

A Strong History

Walk the historic streets of Ibiza's old town, Dalt Vila, where you can explore Renaissance fortifications that protected the island dating back to the 16th century.

Cala Comte beach in Ibiza, Spain

Beat the Heat

Ibiza has plenty of beaches to choose from. Head to Talamanca beach for a relaxing experience, Figueretas for a more resort-style ambiance and Cajal Jondal Beach to catch the fashionable crowd. If you're looking for calm, views and pine trees by the beach, visit Cala Vadella and Cala Salada.

Live It Up

Ibiza's nightlife is legend — but if you want to party in the daytime, you can do that, too. San Antonio is home to some of the biggest, loudest and longest-running clubs around. Go to Eden Ibiza, Cafe del Mar or Es Paradis for a waterfront experience, try Mint or Savannah for low-key vibes, or seek out a boat party for daytime dancing.

A platter of seafood noodle paella in Ibiza, Spain

Local Cuisine

Ibiza has a love affair with food and drink. Everywhere you go, you're sure to find some version of sangria or paella during your Ibiza cruise. But if you want to get more adventurous, try to find fideua (a take on paella but with noodles), sofrit pages (a mix of chicken, lamb and sausage) and flao (the Ibizan version of a cheesecake).

Various shops in Ibiza, Spain with outdoor displays

Shopping

Ibiza is full of bakeries, paper shops and tobacco stores, which close for a little siesta in the morning and then in the afternoon. Cruise to Ibiza and go to Las Dalias and Punta Arabia for hippie-chic stores, Emonk Ibiza for a wide variety of boots and sneakers and Sluiz for interior design items.

INSIDER TIP

Head to small villages to experience the slow-paced lifestyle of Ibiza.

Go Underground

Interested in getting up close and personal with Naples' past residents? Head underground to visit the Catacombs of San Gennaro.

And don't miss the beautiful frescoes and peaceful vibe of Gesu Nuovo Church during your Capri cruise.

A margherita pizza in Naples, Italy

Local Cuisine

Neopolitan-style pizza is Naples culinary gem.

The Pantheon in Rome, Italy

ANCIENT AND AMAZING

Walk through the heart of Ancient Rome. Start at the Colosseum, an enormous arena where gladiators once battled. Then meander around the Roman Forum’s timeworn ruins, past crumbling temples and basilicas. See where emperors lived on Palatine Hill – and enjoy an up-close view of the 2,000-year-old, well-preserved Pantheon church.

ADVENTURE SQUARED

Roam around Rome’s piazzas, as each offers a unique perspective. Dine al fresco in Piazza Navona and climb The Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna. Wander cobbled alleys in bustling Trastevere and browse Campo de’ Fiori’s artisanal stalls. Be sure to toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain for good measure.

Statues in the Vatican Museum

SACRED SPACES

Explore the Vatican Museums’ extraordinary collection of tapestries and classical statues. Step inside the Sistine Chapel and be awed by Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes. Then enter St Peter’s Basilica, one of the world’s largest churches, to stand under its enormous sky-piercing dome.

Pizza, pasta, and antipasta on a table in Rome

LOCAL CUISINE

Romans live to eat, whether it’s family-style or in a pavement café. For an authentic taste of Cucina Romana, try carciofi alla Romana (braised artichokes) or spaghetti alla carbonara. Enjoy panino (stuffed sandwiches) or thin-crusted Roman pizza. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a scoop of gelato. Then finish the night with a glass of white wine from the surrounding Lazio region.

Minitature models of the Colosseum and Vatican

SHOPPING

Street stalls throughout the city are your best bet for souvenirs. Via Condotti offers a string of couture Italian designers. Browse artist studios along Via Margutta, or the indie artisan retailers of the Monti neighbourhood. Porta Portese is the city’s largest flea market – and La Rinascente, the first department store.

Conservative attire (no vest tops or shorts) is required when visiting Rome’s religious sites.
