Keen to offer the best cruise vacations available, MSC always creates interesting and accessible on-shore excursions, and a day trip to Montevideo is no exception.

Take a break from the excitement of cruise life on board your liner and enjoy a pleasant trip to Montevideo, a charming, historic city with elegant 19th and 20th century architecture, beautiful parks and monuments.

Over the years, the influx of immigrants from Spain, Portugal, France and Britain left their mark on this town, which can be witnessed in a wide range of architectural styles from colonial to Art Deco. Indeed, the richness of Montevideo's architecture is unrivalled in South America.

Stroll around the Old City to the neighbourhood of Carrasco, and along the riverfront where local fishermen lay out their catch. The bustling port area is packed with restaurants, cafes and bars and is also home to the Port Market – the Mercado del Puerto – at weekends.

Many of the city's historic sites can be visited in a few hours as they are conveniently located around the Plaza Independencia.
