We at Wandermust family love cruising, everything from convenience of onboard food to simply watching the sea go by. But our favourite thing about cruising has to be the ports. This list is for all you architecture lovers out there – from all of our adventures by cruise these are what we think are the top five ports for seeing different architecture!
There isn’t a Greek yoghurt pot in the world that doesn’t have a picture of Santorini of. The island is home to the archetypal white buildings with blue domes and the beautiful town of oia is not to be missed. For the adventurous among you one of the best things to do in Santorini is to hike from Oia to Fira!
Make sure you try the local food while there!

Perhaps the most famous skyline in the world. As you sail out of port you’ll see the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and more.
On a port excursion make sure you visit the flat iron, Chrysler building and the radiator to see New York in all its Art Deco glory
Like it or loathe, dubai has some of the worlds biggest buildings. A visit to Dubai isn’t complete without a trip to the burj khalifa but there are other impressive buildings too like the burj al arab!
The old souq is also worth a visit to see how Dubai use to be.
Although Rome is an hours drive from the port of civitevetchia it’s well worth the travel. Whether you want to see archaeological ruins at the forum or colosseum or bask in the wonder of the Vatican City – Rome has is all
There is no where on earth quite like Barcelona thanks to the architectural stylings of gaudi- from the park, to his buildings to the incomparable and still incomplete church. An architectural tour of Barcelona is amazing.
