Detailed Description

Romance flutters down the lanes of Barcelona, and it weaves a path along the cobblestone, entering tapas and cocktail bars along the way. Down the Mediterranean it goes, as yachts wade in the harbor as golden beaches cascade onwards. Out of the city, this romance seeks some privacy, and you will be able to find it on mountains beneath the stars and vineyards that are hidden from the world. Barcelona is a city that can morph around your mood and there is always another place where you will find the romantic atmosphere take hold. One night that may be an Arabic spa, and the next night it could be Palau de la Musica Catalana where Spanish music echoes around the finest of all Modernist structures.

Handcrafted with the most romantic experiences Barcelona has to offer, this ten-day vacation is designed just for two. There is plenty of time to explore the city at your leisure, from getting lost in Barri Gotic to drinking cocktails on rooftop bars and spending time at the beach. The experiences are varied and designed to be fun, including a day trip to the Penedes wine region, hot air ballooning above Catalonia, a Spanish cooking class, and nighttime tapas. Restaurant reservations ensure you get a table at Barcelona’s most special places to dine while a private picnic provides another angle on the city.

Touch down and overcome the travel fatigue by spending your first evening in an Arabic spa. Spend day two on a private boat tour, sailing the Catalan coast with drinks and snacks before dining at the incredibly intimate Tintoreria Dontell. You will be amazed at the entrance to this fine dining restaurant is disguised as a launderette. Get to know the old city as you walk hand in hand through Barri Gotic on day three, which is followed by a hands-on Spanish cooking class that takes you through tapas and paella. Food is always a highlight in Barcelona, and on day four you will have a picnic that overlooks the city before some free time which could be perfect for the beach.

A Barcelona vacation is not complete without Gaudi and Montaner, which are the great exponents of Catalan art nouveau. Tour the essential architecture on day five before getting lost in the warren-like lanes of El Born on your tapas tour. Five days will have gone by in a flash but you are only halfway, and there is plenty to explore beyond the city. Visit Penedes on day six, which is the home of Cava sparkling wine that will provide an idyllic place to make a toast and sample some of Spain’s best white wines. On day seven, you sail above Catalonia in a hot air balloon, perhaps with a little street music to serenade you into the evening.

The final two days are left free, and by then you will have some personal favorites within Barcelona. That could be a quiet beach like Bogatell, the atmospheric corridors of La Boqueria, or a sunset view from Montjuic. On day eight, a driver takes you to Montserrat for a special mountaintop dinner beneath the stars. For day nine, you will experience a Spanish guitar concert in the finest Modernist building of them all: Palau de la Musica Catalana. All of this will be topped off by your handpicked hotel where there is a private swimming pool on your terrace, plus all the seclusion you need for romance to thrive. Extend your time in this remarkable region with additional Spain travel ideas.
