Oman, a stop on our Costa cruise to the lands of ancient Persia, remains a timeless country because it is contemporary and ancient, where everything is spotlessly clean and shiny. Oman is called the Norway of Arabia for its truly special morphological characteristics. An almost lunar landscape, as in the Musandam peninsula, where we sail between the fjords of the Arabian Sea. Muscat is nice to visit with its Nizwa market and the Bait-al-Zubair Omani Museum, the Al Alam Royal Palace and the Al Jalali Fort. According to legend, the Palace of the Queen of Sheba stood in the Bay of Kohr Rori. In Salalah, you can admire the geysers that gush from the rocks. A Jeep trip out to a desert oasis of palm trees is unmissable. The cruise to Oman takes us to extraordinarily beautiful places, where the fascination of dreams and legends blend together.
