Hotels

Welcome to Spain as you arrive in Barcelona. Get ready to discover the golden sand beaches as you head off to Santa Susanna located towards the north end of the Barcelona Coast. Santa Susanna is one of the Maresme villages where you can visit the historic watchtowers built from the 15th to 18th centuries to defend against pirate attacks. Enjoy the balance of your day relaxing on the beach or experiencing the vast amenities of your spa hotel. Savor an included dinner this evening. (D)

Rise and shine with a full buffet breakfast at your hotel before taking time to experience Santa Susanna and the treasures of this coastal Catalonia town today at your leisure. Walk around the village, bask in the glittering sun, explore the town’s openair markets, or visit Montnegre-Corredor Nature Park. The day is yours to experience Santa Susanna at your own pace. Delight in a delicious dinner at your hotel this evening. (B,D)

Have breakfast at your hotel before your transfer from the coast to Girona. This afternoon embark on a private guided walking tour of the ancient walled city. Girona stands on a fortress-like hill, high above the confluence of the Onyar and Ter rivers. Founded by Iberians, the Romans later named it Gerunda and established it as an important stopping point on the Via Augusta, linking Iberia with Rome. The city’s 15th century cathedral features the widest unsupported Gothic arch in the world. Much of Girona’s attraction lies in exploring the medieval streets, especially around the charming Jewish quarter. (B)

Power up with a hearty buffet breakfast at your hotel before heading out on your private transfer to France’s Carcassonne. This medieval walled city sits in the lush valley of the Aude river—the gap between the Pyrenees and the Massif Central. Take time to explore the largest walled city in Europe with defensive walls still intact and see its 52 massive towers. Stroll the postcard perfect pathways of the citadel, visit the area’s vineyards, and taste the local flavors at an authentic crêperie at your own pace. (B)

After breakfast at your hotel, join in a private tour of Carcassonne. Discover the legend of Lady Carcas who battled to save Carcassonne in the 8th century. Walk along the city walls to admire the mighty Roman towers, marvel at its double line of fortifications, and enjoy panoramic views over the rolling hills on the horizon. With the afternoon to enjoy at leisure, consider trying Cassoulet, southwestern France’s most beloved dish consisting of a casserole with white haricot beans, sausage, and duck or goose confit. (B)

Have breakfast at your hotel before heading on to Barcelona. This afternoon you will enjoy a private Gaudi tour. Barcelona is known as the capital of Modernism where the famous architect Antoni Gaudi lived and worked. On this excursion, you will delve into his most emblematic works, such as Casa Milà, also known as “La Pedrera”, and Casa Batlló on our tour along Passeig de Gracia, as well as Guell Park and the world-famous Sagrada Familia church – Gaudi’s still unfinished masterpiece. (B)

Savor breakfast at your hotel before your departure transfer to Barcelona Airport for your flight home. (B)
