1 Madrid, Spain
Hola, Madrid! Before you meet up with the gang this afternoon, check out the Royal Palace, get cultured at the Prado Museum or just kick back in the botanical gardens. After the sun sets, delve into the buzzing nightlife in the areas of Malasaña and Chueca. Just be prepared to party ‘til the break of dawn.
2 Madrid to Valencia
Onto Spain’s third largest city, Valencia. A fabulous hybrid of past and present, this picturesque port town combines avant-garde buildings with modern facilities (hello, The City of Arts and Sciences Complex) and sparkling seaports. Take in some of the best bits on a walking tour. (B)
3 Valencia to Barcelona
Bienvenidos to the city of art nouveau, alluring accents and most importantly, tapas. Today we hit Barcelona and get our bearings on a driving tour. Trust us, you’ll leave a little bit of your heart behind when you see this beautiful city. Stroll the bustling Las Ramblas and indulge in a satisfying feast at our included dinner. Flamenco, anyone? Get those feet a' tapping at the optional show tonight. (B/D)
4 Barcelona
Tick off the greats today. The Sagrada Família is so beautiful you will probably cry. Seriously. There’s also the Gothic Quarter to check out and loads of yummy food and sangria to hunt down. After a solid day of exploring, fire up for the notorious nightlife (note: people hit the clubs at midnight. Earliest. So, make sure you've had your beauty sleep). (B)
5 Barcelona to Marseille, France
Today we cross the border into France . Marseille’s next on our list. With its boat-lined quayside, history and architecture, there's no wonder this is one of France's most visited cities. A melting pot of sceneries, get your bearings on a walking tour. (B)
6 Marseille
Your second day in Marseille is yours to spend at your leisure. Explore bustling La Canebière or dig into bouillabaisse, the hearty fish stew invented in Marseille. You could also check out the colourful markets, the Calanques, the Panier area and the Corniche. Be sure to catch the sunset over the Vieux Port. (B)
7 Marseille to Florence, Italy
With over 1,800 restaurants and the world's best gelato (hands down), Florence is where all your Italian food dreams are made. After snapping the city's picturesque streets, dig into a hearty included dinner before rolling into bed with a full tummy. (B/D)
8 Florence
Wakey wakey! Florence is ready and waiting. Enjoy a guided walking tour of the city's greats this morning. Think: Ponte Vecchio, Florence Cathedral and a statue of that famous naked guy, David. Afterwards, there’s free to time to shop and eat Tuscan food to your heart’s content. (B)
9 Florence to Rome
Today, we're Romeward bound. OMG. Get excited for our legendary Rome walking tour! Highlights: gazing up at the historic Pantheon, throwing coins into the Trevi Fountain and coming face to face with the almighty Colosseum. (B)
10 Rome
If you’re up for an early start, why not head out on an optional trip to the world’s smallest country (and home of the pope) this morning? After that, our trip will come to a close. Noooo! You can always stick around in Rome to shop ‘til you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for awesome views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness). Ciao, until next time! (B)
