The City of Fun
Attractions that are famous all over the world for their beauty and grandeur, endless beaches with numerous facilities for surfing and water sports. Fun, relaxation and a mild climate that caresses the skin. This and so much more can be found in
San Diego, a city that will remain etched in your heart thanks to your MSC World Cruise.
Located in sunny
Southern California, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, San Diego will surprise you with La Jolla, literally "the jewel", an area known for its beautiful sandy beaches, broken up by canyons, cliffs and hills that end at Mount Soledad. The perfect place for an unforgettable holiday, especially because of Torrey Pines State Reserve, a 2,000 hectare coastal park consisting of rock and lagoon areas which offers the opportunity to hike in full nature.
MSC Cruises will also take you, in this land full of surprises, on the discovery of the famous
San Diego Zoo, the largest and most well known zoo in the world currently home to 800 different species, with a total of about 4,000 animals, and occupying an area of approximately 43 hectares. It is surely one of the most beautiful attractions in the city, as well as being one of the few zoos that can boast the presence of a panda among its creatures.
But the holiday does not end there. San Diego also includes many quaint neighborhoods that are well worth visiting. One of these is undoubtedly the
Gaslamp Quarter, a focal point of the city that hosts a large number of shops, theaters, casinos and nightlife. It is perfect for shopping during the day and entertainment at night. The district also hosts numerous events and music festivals and includes 94 historical reconstructions built in the Victorian Age. You will only see places this spectacular with MSC Cruises!
