Kochi, better known as Cochin is Kerala’s most cosmopolitan city. It is also the main trading centre for spices and seafood. Built around a saltwater lagoon of the Arabian sea, Kochi is in fact a collection of narrow islands and peninsulas. Additionally, it served as a significant hub for Dutch, British and Portuguese maritime commerce in the past. This fascinating blend of colonial and traditional cultures in the city draws a lot of visitors.

This tour include stops at Paradesi Synagogue, Fort Kochi, Chinese Fishing Nets, Marine Drive, Princess Street, St. Francis CSI Church, and Bolgatty Palace.

We have designed it with cruise guests in mind. This  itinerary will give you a thorough look at the city and greatly enhance your trip experience.



  • The Cochin Jewish Synagogue is a place of worship situated in the Mattancherry neighbourhood of Kochi city. It is one of the must-see locations on your tour of Kochi because it is the oldest synagogue in the Commonwealth of Nations.
  • The Cochin Jewish Synagogue, also known as Paradesi Synagogue and Mattancherry Synagogue, was built in 1568 by Samuel Castiel, David Belila, and Joseph Levi for the Malabari Jewish community, which was primarily comprised of immigrants from the Middle East and Europe. It was destroyed by the Portuguese in 1662, and the Dutch rebuilt it two years later.
  • Once inside, the stunning Belgian chandelier, Dutch-style clock tower, and brass-railed pulpits will astound you. Beautiful hand-painted Chinese tiles cover the floors. The paintings illustrating Jewish history, the silver Torah scrolls, and the distinctive Ethiopian rug will all be admired by art aficionados.

One of Kerala’s most well-known historical sites, the Dutch Palace, often referred to as Mattancherry Palace, was constructed by the Portuguese and later refurbished by the Dutch. You may see the conventional ‘Nalukettu’ architecture of Kerala.

The Mattancherry Palace was constructed by the Portuguese in 1545 CE. The building was then expanded upon and renovated by the Dutch in 1663, and ever since then, it has been referred to as the Dutch building. The palace was a part of the ‘tentative list’ of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Indo-Portuguese Museum at Fort Kochi is a crucial location for understanding the history of Indo-Portuguese Christian art.

Dr. Joseph Kureethra, the bishop of Kochi, founded the museum. This museum provides information on the beginning and conclusion of Portuguese colonisation in Kochi.

In close proximity to Fort Kochi is the Santa Cruz Basilica, one of India’s eight basilicas. Its Gothic exterior and Portuguese interiors make this stunning Roman Catholic church famous. When visiting Kochi, those who appreciate art and architecture must see the Santa Cruz Basilica.

Fort Kochi, a coastal community southwest of Kochi, is well known for its classic colonial style. In this region, you may still see the remains of the Dutch and Portuguese Stormberg forts.

While taking in the stunning sunset, you can indulge in some delectable seafood. European landmarks can be found all across the attractive city.

Fishing nets known as “Chinese Fishing Nets” were a common sight at Fort Kochi’s harbour entrance. These nets, which are locally known as Cheenavala, were introduced by the Chinese explorer. These are a few of the most well-liked tourist destinations in Kochi.

Fort Kochi Beach is a calm beach that welcomes guests with a picturesque vista and unspoiled beauty. It is greatly liked by both tourists and residents due to its crystal-clear water and serene atmosphere.

The Gallery of Modern Art is located on Durbar Hall Road in Ernakulam. Prior to becoming a museum, it served as a gathering place for the Rajas. The museum originally included ancient coins, sculptures, oil paintings, and murals in addition to other archaeological discoveries and antiquities.

The George’s Syro-Malabar Catholic Forane Church, popularly known as the Edappally Church, is located in Edapally. It is one of the oldest churches in both the nation and Kerala. You can see the church’s architecture and interior decor.
One of the main draws is a picture of the Virgin Mary.

Our Lady of Ransom Basilica is sometimes referred to as the Vallarpadam church. For Christian pilgrims, it is a well-known location. The nation’s most important Marian shrine is visited by pilgrims from all over seeking Mother Mary’s blessings.
