Trip Summary
2 nights in Barcelona

Barcelona, the old Roman Barcino, is Spain`s second city, always on the biting edge of fashion, architecture, food, style, music and good times. Walk its narrow streets and wonderful plazas, or along the Ramblas, stretching from Plaza de Cataluña to the Harbor, encompassing the magic of the city: stalls full of books, birds and flowers. The city`s most powerful monuments open a window onto its history: the intricately carved edifices that comprise the medieval Gothic Quarter; the curvilinear modernism (Catalan Art Nouveau) that inspired Gaudí's Sagrada Familia; and the seminal surrealist works of Picasso and Miró, found in museums that peg Barcelona as a crucial incubator for 20th-century art. The recent restoration of the port area began with the development of a harbor for the Olympic Games of 1992. New modern squares, designed by leading artists such as Miró and Barceló have created a new style alongside Gaudi's modernist buildings. Now the city is ready to show every visitor how it has been transformed into one of the most moderns and active cities in Europe.

Girona, an ancient Roman town with a strong Jewish heritage, is home to a splendid Gothic cathedral, whose immense central nave defies the laws of gravity.

Many other hidden places, residential and other outstanding buildings can be discovered while walking through this hidden gem.


2 nights in Perpignan

Perpignan, the capital city of the Pyrenees-Orientales, is conveniently situated near the border of Spain and just miles from the Mediterranean coast. With charming regional influences in architecture, cuisine, and stunning local weather, it`s a hidden corner of France deserving of more attention. At the foot of the Pyrenees, the River Basse runs through the medieval city centre and the River Tet flows to the north, affording the visitor spectacular views across an agricultural plain and a city rich in Catalan culture. Just about 30 minutes from the city you are on glorious Mediterranean beaches in Canet-Plage and by heading west, you`re in the beautiful Pyrenees mountains full of medieval villages and castles. Perpignan offers an enjoyable ambiance and a great deal of diversity and attractions for visitors to discover.

Spain

Spain is a country of passion, excitement and enthusiasm unlike any other in Western Europe. Madrid, the magnificent capital, Barcelona, Valencia and Seville are effervescent cosmopolitan cities with some of the best museums and galleries in Europe. Costa-style resorts take much of the coast up although cities such as Alicante, Marbella, Malaga and Mallorca's Palma retain their charm. And everywhere you can find secret hideaways with empty beaches. The best way to explore rural Spain is to visit Galicia and Asturias, the arid villages of Andalucia and the peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the Pyrenees.

France

France remains one of the worlds most talked-about and written-about destinations. Whether the romance of Paris sweeps you off your feet or you fall gently for the relaxed life of Provence, France is a place for lovers, and will leave you spellbound. Paris is undoubtedly one of the world's great cities, with enough monuments, museums, restaurants, theatres and shows to last a lifetime. The northern provinces of Normandy and Brittany are steeped in history while the Loire Valley is world famous for its châteaux. And there is more to explore.
