SHORE EXCURSION YALTA: itinerary
The Yalta shore excursion begins at Livadia Palace, where the momentous Yalta Conference took place. In February 1945, Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin met here to discuss the division of Europe after WWII.
The palace is built of white Crimean granite in the Neo-Renaissance style and was the summer residence of the last Russian tsar, Nicholas II. Keep your cameras to hand for beautiful snaps of the Italian courtyard and the chapel. From here, we can also appreciate delightful views across Yalta and the Black Sea.
Then, we’ll head to the Old Town to explore the centre. The main attraction here is the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Built in 1902, this Orthodox temple has a unique style and is lavishly decorated. There is a three-layer bell tower, eleven golden domes and a mosaic of St. Alexander Nevsky.
After our walking tour of the centre, we’ll have a little free time to spend as you wish before heading back to port.
*Shore excursions could be subject to variations due to external causes as Cruise Companies politics, weather conditions, duration of the stay of the ship in the port, legal demonstrations
