Barcelona – A Romantic Place to Start
With all its spires and Gothic style, the heart of Barcelona is always a romantic place to start. Wine bars sneak their way into Roman stone while colorful boutiques hide down the mazy lanes of Barri Gotic. The Mediterranean is just steps from your hotel, where super-yachts lull and beaches await. Touch down and transfer privately to your hotel, where the honeymoon suite is on the top floor and has a small balcony looking out on the city. This day is at your leisure as you settle in, so head out into Barcelona and see why the city is so special, perhaps returning for some sunset viewing from your balcony.

Spain is utterly romantic. Sure, it might not have the romantic fame of Italy or France, but it has far more to offer couples, especially with experiences that few have enjoyed. This handcrafted tour for two focuses on exclusive experiences to show you Spain in a way that others have not. Rather than queue for a Gaudi building, you will have exclusive sunset access to one of Gaudi’s rooftops. They say the best view of Granada and the Alhambra comes from Mirador de San Nicolas, but that will be nothing on the view you have from a hot air balloon. Instead of merely wine tasting, you will go tasting in a town’s mazy, four-century-old cellar.
This tour is all about the special moments, and it will be filled with select attractions that you only want to experience together. The two of you will travel to five distinctive overnight destinations with romantic accommodation in small, boutique hotels. Almost all of your tours are private, and most of the experiences are rarely seen on tourist itineraries. The itinerary will not be too busy, which will allow you lots of time to explore on your own together, especially in cities like Barcelona and Seville, as well as plenty of mornings to sleep in and enjoy each other’s company. Most destinations are connected by internal flights, although there are some road transfers as well.
Start off with four nights in Barcelona with the first 24 hours on your own to settle in before private after-hours access to Gaudi’s La Pedrera. Helicopter above Catalonia the next day, and then take a sidecar through Barcelona the following, experiences that come on either side of a luxurious private wine tasting in Penedes, the home of Cava. Fly next to Bilbao, and then get your head around the Guggenheim before two nights in San Sebastian, an elegant beach town on Spain’s northern coast. Here you can relax as you stroll the promenade, sample the pintxo bars, lounge on the beach and discover why royal couples were coming here to relax even centuries ago.
Weave into the Rioja wine-lands on day seven, tasting at two vineyards before sinking into the medieval cellars of Laguardia, as laid-back and amorous a town as any in Spain. It will then be a short transfer back to Bilbao from here, where you can fly to Seville and get your city introduction with a horse and carriage ride. That evening, you will go tapas hopping in the place where tapas originates. Other Andalusian specialties are to come with a day trip to Ronda and an authentic flamenco performance. End in Granada, the picture-perfect city that is perched on a hill and remembers the Moors. Hot air balloon above the city, tour the Alhambra, try the hammam experience, and visit nearby Ubeda and Baeza. Your two weeks in Spain will whizz by, and you will have memories to last a lifetime together.
