The Bahrain grand tour

Join us on this tour round Bahrain’s most famous sights and landmarks in just one day.
Our first call will be the Al Fateh Grand Mosque with its iconic fibreglass dome – one of the largest in the world. As well as its importance as a place of worship, it is also home to the Islamic Center library with a collection of more than 7,000 religious texts, reference books and periodicals
Then it’s on to the country’s most popular tourist destination: the Bahrain National Museum. This beautiful postmodern building overlooking the waterfront houses artefacts and exhibits spanning 5,000 years of Bahrain’s history, from the ancient Dilmun civilisation onwards. A truly immersive introduction to the region and its people.
On the way to our next destination, we’ll make a photo stop at Athar, a beautiful structure in the heart of Manama, which celebrates the contribution of Bahraini women to their country and its culture.
Next is the historic Bahrain Fort, a site steeped in ancient history. Although the fort itself dates back to the 16th century, when it was built by the Portuguese, excavations of the site have shown that the area has been populated since 2,300 BC and it may well have been the capital of the ancient Dimun empire.
The Al Jasra Handicraft Centre is our penultimate stop, located in the village of the same name. As you move through the Centre’s rooms, you’ll see examples of some of the country’s traditional crafts, including palm weaving, pottery and woodwork.
Before we head back to the ship we’ll make a final stop at the impressive King Fahd causeway – 25 kilometres of bridges and causeways completed in 1986 and connecting Bahrain and Saudi Arabia for the first time in 25,000 years.
