Barcelona

— 8 nights

Jewel of the Mediterranean

Barcelona, the country’s second-largest city, is a cosmopolitan urban center known for its throbbing youthful energy and stellar architecture.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at La Boqueria and Passeig de Gracia. Take a break from the city and head to Camino de Ronda and Fenals Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Barcelona: San Pol Beach (in S'Agaro), Lloret de Mar (Playa Cala Sa Boadella, Lloret Beach, &more) and Stand-Up Paddleboarding (in Sant Feliu de Guixols). There's much more to do: take a stroll through El Barri Gòtic, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, walk around Parc Guell, and explore the world behind art at Museu Picasso.
