Stretching from the Pyrenees in the north to the Mediterranean in the east, Catalonia offers a diverse array of scenery and attractions including rocky coasts, sandy beaches, lush plains, historic cities, tiny fishing villages and mountain hamlets.
We begin with 4 nights in the vibrant city of Barcelona. From Roman town to medieval trade hub, its old centre constitutes one of the greatest concentrations of Gothic architecture in Europe and is home to some of the world’s most bizarre buildings. We will tour the city and enjoy an excursion to the impressive jagged mountains of Monserrat before travelling to the historic city of Girona for a 4-night stay. Girona has a rich architectural heritage and is steeped in character, with the old Jewish Quarter among its major sights. A city tour of Girona, a visit to Figueres to see Dali’s museum, and an excursion to the resort town of Cadaques shows us the best the area has to offer.
From Girona we travel to the charming seaside town and old fishing village of Tossa De Mar in popular Costa Brava for 2 nights, en route visiting a number of impressive medieval villages and enjoying the magnificent scenery which includes spectacular cliff views, azure-blue water, whitewashed houses and rich green coast.
Our tour finishes with 2 nights in Tarragona, an important seaside city of the Roman Empire located on the enchanting Costa Dorada, with its well-preserved monuments: the aqueducts, an amphitheater and the Tomb of the Scipios.
*** Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
