If what you really need is a quick escape to recharge the batteries, then this five-day Spanish island holiday is for you. You'll make a beeline straight for Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Isles, and tour its historic capital of Palma on foot. The rest of the time will be spent enjoying Mallorca's gorgeous scenery as you embark on sailing tours and hiking excursions around the coast.
You'll also visit the impressive Castell de Bellver—a 14th-century circular castle (the only round castle in Spain)—and the Royal Palace of La Almudaina, originally an Arabian fort. Stop in at the city's historic Mercat de l'Olivar, people watch at the main square Plaça Major, and stroll down the charming Passeig del Born.
Other highlights include the Passeig Marítim de Palma, the 15th-century Llotja de Palma, and the La Rambla street, a miniature version of the famous avenue in Barcelona.
