Barcelona to Barcelona
Note: No Longer Available
Departure from USA
There's nothing quite like Barcelona. Especially if you consider the
architecture. The city lays claim to its very own form of Art Nouveau,
known as Modernisme. The Sagrada Familia Basilica is perhaps the best
example of this beautiful and interesting brand of architecture, with
its bold color, beautiful tile-work and swirling lines. At the same
time, many find the work at the Picasso Museum and the cathedrals of the
Gothic Quarter equally inspiring.
Stroll the spirit and charm of France's oldest city - along La Canabiere
toward the Vieux Port where ships have docked for more than 26
centuries, or in Cours Julien, a large pedestrian square lined with some
of Marseille's trendiest cafes and theatres. And of course, no trip to
Marseille would be complete without tasting its most renowned dish -
Situated at the foot of the Alps is the French Riviera city of Nice.
Once you arrive here, it will be clear why this jewel of the French
Riviera is home to some of the world's most luxurious hotels and
terraced cafés. Stroll along the ultra-famous Promenade des Anglais or
see masterpieces by Matisse, Renoir, Monet and Chagall in one of Nice's
many museums. For a true taste of Nice, sample the local favorites,
including onion, anchovy and olive tarts known as pissaladières, along
with succulent little black olives known as caillettes.
Florence or Pisa, Italy
Occupying both banks of the Arno River and situated at the foot of the
Apennine Mountains, is Florence. Founded by Julius Caesar himself,
Florence is known as the birthplace of the Renaissance. History and art
shake hands in this picturesque land where masterpieces like
Michelangelo's David can be seen in the city's many museums, churches
Pisa is perhaps most noted for its famous marble bell tower, known
widely as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It's no surprise the tower is still
leaning (14 1/2 feet since 1370), considering that it resides in the
Field of Miracles, known locally as Campo de Miracoli.
Once the center of the ancient world from which emperors ruled over
nearly all of western civilization for hundreds of years, Rome is still
considered by many to reign over all other European destinations. Here
you can breathe the air once breathed by great Roman gladiators in the
ancient halls of the Colosseum. Gaze upon the very ceilings Michelangelo
painted at the Sistine Chapel. Or visit a monument to both size and
faith, St. Peter's Basilica, the largest church ever built.
Monuments, avenues, squares, and museums grace this charming city which
fathered one of the biggest conquerors in history. The birthplace of
Napoleon Bonaparte is an island of rocky outcroppings and sandy beaches,
set on a sunny bay surrounded by citrus groves, olive trees, and
vineyards, and bursting with history and cultural diversity.

One of the country's biggest and bustling cities was defended against
the Moors by the legendary Spaniard "El Cid." Work up an appetite taking
in la Calle de Los Caballeros and La Lonja, Valencia's old
stock-exchange building of 1483, and reward your curiosities with a
Paella Valenciana, Spain's most famous contribution to the world's
The great Rock of Gibraltar is a sight to behold, towering 1,400 feet
above the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounded by beautiful
countryside. Home to the semi-wild and curiously tailless Barbary Apes,
and St. Michael's cave - long believed to be bottomless - Gibraltar is
the only link between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
