Detailed Description

There is nothing quite like the eclectic mix of bustling Barcelona. While hurried foot traffic and honking taxis constitute modern-day living, centuries-old relics hide behind nearly every corner. Locals delight in downtown window shopping, visitors stroll down the enchanting Las Ramblas boulevard, and seagulls coo overhead en route to the shimmering waters of the Mediterranean. Fanciful rooftops and undulating facades also mark the emblematic aesthetic of the famous architect: Antoni Gaudi.

You and your partner will embark on a riveting, seven-day excursion through Barcelona and the larger Catalonia region. You will begin your journey in the heart of Barcelona's Old City, which is known as the Gothic Quarter. Hand-in-hand, you will stroll past opulent architecture that dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries. As you make your way to the nearby neighborhood of Eixample, your guide will point out Gaudi's famed works. Later, you will indulge in Gaudi's greatest masterpieces of all when you stroll the halls of La Sagrada Familia church and along the whimsical paths of Park Guell. Once you have worked up an appetite, you can join a world-renowned chef and roll up your sleeves as you learn to make Barcelona's prized, saffron-induced paella.

During the second half of your trip, you will depart the flashing lights and effervescent city streets for the quiet and charming ambiance of Girona. Here, you will step inside a fascinating time capsule that includes cultural influences during periods of Roman, Jewish, and Arab control. You and your partner can relax along the sparkling coastlines of Costa Brava before trading ocean waters for rugged mountain peaks. Alongside your expert guide, you will venture to the Santa Maria monastery in Montserrat for impeccable views of the looming mountains. Finally, you and your partner are in for a real treat as you step on the illustrious turf of FC Barcelona at Camp Nou stadium.
