Barcelona
Avviker på 5:00 PM
Det er lett å forstå hvorfor Barcelona er den mest besøkte byen i Spania. Byen er hovedstad i regionen Catalonia og er en mosaikk av 2000 år gamle strender badet i sol, banebrytende arkitektur og verdenskjente steder for mat og drikke. Den katalanske arkitekten Antoni Gaudí la igjen et modernistisk avtrykk over hele byen, og middelalderske skatter dveler i historiske gotiske kvartaler. Utforsk de lunefulle hagene i Park Güell, eller delta på et katalansk kokkekurs ledet av en kokk. Se kunstkolleksjoner dedikert til Picasso og Miro, eller ta en taubane til toppen av Montjuïc-høyden og nyt utsikten over byen på veien.

GRIP DAGEN TIL SJØS

Syv strender strekker seg over tre kilometer langs Middelhavskystlinjen, og havnefronten i Barcelona er kjent for noen av de beste sol- og sjøopplevelsene. Slapp av langs kysten, padle i en kajakk på det blå vannet eller bli med på en fisketur for muligheten til å få en tunfisk, sverdfisk eller spydfisk på kroken i Middelhavet.

Eller kos deg med spansk tapas (små appetittvekkere) i baren som lokalbefolkningen, med en vermut laget på huset i hånden.

Although originally called "Nakaia," France's Nice is as delightful as its name suggests to English speakers. Take a bus or taxi into Nice's Old City to explore its history-spanning architecture and pristine French Riviera beaches with your Nice cruise. Or stick closer to Villefranche-sur-Mer, where your ship will dock, and take a day-trip to the mountaintop town of Eze. No matter how you spend your time in the de facto hub of France's Cote d'Azur, you'll enjoy the added benefit of being close to Italy, which means delectable pizza, fragrant espresso and the sounds of a second Romance language.

Hit the Beach

Not surprisingly, Nice is a great place for a day at the beach.

The pristine Mediterranean waters instantly reveal why this place is known as France's Cote d'Azur — the Azure Coast.

Local Cuisine

Look for trovolia, a typical fresh cheese to savor with marinated olives.

Barcelona
Ankommer 6:00 AM
Det er lett å forstå hvorfor Barcelona er den mest besøkte byen i Spania. Byen er hovedstad i regionen Catalonia og er en mosaikk av 2000 år gamle strender badet i sol, banebrytende arkitektur og verdenskjente steder for mat og drikke. Den katalanske arkitekten Antoni Gaudí la igjen et modernistisk avtrykk over hele byen, og middelalderske skatter dveler i historiske gotiske kvartaler. Utforsk de lunefulle hagene i Park Güell, eller delta på et katalansk kokkekurs ledet av en kokk. Se kunstkolleksjoner dedikert til Picasso og Miro, eller ta en taubane til toppen av Montjuïc-høyden og nyt utsikten over byen på veien.

SKYHØYE OPPLEVELSER

Se La Sagrada Família på nært hold – et mesterverk av en katedral som ble designet av den hyllede katalanske arkitekten Antoni Gaudí. Beundre de skyhøye spirene og gå inn for å oppleve intrikat mosaikk, Montjuïc-steinstøtter og Nativity façade. Du kan til og med gå helt til topps i spirene for å få panoramautsikt over byen.

GRIP DAGEN TIL SJØS

Syv strender strekker seg over tre kilometer langs Middelhavskystlinjen, og havnefronten i Barcelona er kjent for noen av de beste sol- og sjøopplevelsene. Slapp av langs kysten, padle i en kajakk på det blå vannet eller bli med på en fisketur for muligheten til å få en tunfisk, sverdfisk eller spydfisk på kroken i Middelhavet.

I MIKSEN

Ta en tur langs La Ramblas gågate for å oppleve selve essensen av byen. Suvenirbutikker, gatekunstnere, blomsterboder, fortauskafeer og katalanske sardanadansere gjør det til et livlig område. Det vidunderlige midtpunktet La Catedral strekker seg tilbake til 1200-tallet, og tårnet gir en fantastisk utsikt over middelalderske Barcelona.

LOKAL MAT

Barcelona mestrer kunsten å spise. Flere restauranter serverer kreativ nueva cocina española, og steder ved sjøen disker opp med paella med sjømat og lunsjmenyer med flere retter inkludert et glass musserende vin. Hvis du vil smake katalansk mat, kan du prøve pa amb tomàquet (brød med tomat). Eller kos deg med spansk tapas (små appetittvekkere) i baren som lokalbefolkningen, med en vermut laget på huset i hånden.

SHOPPING

Du kan bruke timevis på markedene i Barcelona hvor du kan kjøpe skinnklær av høy kvalitet, smykker, gamle bøker og unike husholdningsartikler. Passeig de Gràcia og Barcelona Shopping Line er to populære handelspromenader – og det gotiske kvartalet er hjemmet til massevis av familieeide butikker som selger tekstiler, kontorartikler, dekorative keramikkfliser og kjøkkenredskap av steintøy.
