Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Barcelona

Arrive at Barcelona airport and transfer to your accommodation.

Enjoy the day at leisure. Take a stroll through the beautiful parks and botanical gardens of Montjuic overlooking the city. Explore the Miro Museum and many sites from the 1992 Olympic Games.

Enjoy a taste of chocolate at the Museu de Xocolata or try a variety of tapas – perfect for a late evening meal.

Day 2: Barri Gotic and El Born

After breakfast, discover Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella, an intriguing maze of winding streets dotted with charming squares and hidden corners and lively avenues including La Ramblas – home to the iconic Boqueria market. Learn about the Roman, Medieval and Modernist influences that transformed the city into a maritime empire. The ships of the Royal Navy attest to that and can be seen at the Maritime Museum right next to the Columbus Monument in the Old Port.

A day to relax and experience the Mediterranean life.

Make the most out of your day with a leisurely walk in the historic Begur town center, one of the treasures of Costa Brava. The colorful buildings are the perfect backdrop to the blue waters, so take your camera with you.

Later in the day, head to beautiful Girona to discover the Medieval city on a guided evening tour.

Day 5: A day in the Pyrenees

Your journey continues to the majestic Catalan Pyrenees, a remote region of stunning natural beauty and peaceful rural countryside. The perfect place to recharge and breathe in the fresh mountain air as you enjoy a panoramic hike off the beaten track – if you’re feeling adventurous. Visit one of the best-preserved stone villages dating back to the Middle Ages and work up an appetite while exploring the winding cobblestone streets. The hike will take you to some amazing viewpoints overlooking a 360-foot waterfall surrounded by breathtaking cliffs and a beautiful valley below. All of this is followed by a traditional meal in a 207 year old village restaurant, the best Catalan meal you’ll have on your trip.

Next, your driver will drop you off at Barcelona airport. Continue to Seville.

Overnight at a 4-star hotel in Seville.

Day 6: Fairytale Andalusia

Laidback Seville is the ideal setting to get introduced to the unique history and culture of Andalusia. And, the rhythm of Spanish guitars is the perfect backdrop to your guided tour through the most picturesque of all places, the Santa Cruz quarter with its sunny squares, colorful tiled buildings and some of the narrowest alleys you’ve ever seen. Visit the beautifully ornate Alcazar, one of the oldest royal residences still in use and its carefully tended Moorish gardens. Immerse yourself in the eventful Spanish history at the burial place of Christopher Columbus – a Cathedral built on the site of an ancient mosque boasting a bell tower that used to be a minaret.

Seville is one of the birthplaces of flamenco music. The suburbs of Triana and La Macarena are a melting pot of flamenco influences and the city is full of superb venues offering live performances. Experience the world of flamenco with a live performance as your local guide regales you with the history, origins and influences of this genre. After the show enjoy a variety of tapas in the most intimate of locales, a culinary delight that will leave you asking for more.
