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.

The UNESCO World Heritage ruins of Ephesus impress even those familiar with the world's other ancient cities.

Shopping

The Kusadasi bazaar is naturally the place to go for shopping. A Turkish blue eye, meant to ward off the evil eye, makes a great souvenir.

It's also home to two of the city's finest museums, the Natural Museum and the Museum of Fine Art, both of which are well worth a stop.
Insider tip
If you've read "The Count of Monte Cristo," the name Chateau d'If might ring a bell. Visit this 16th-century castle to learn about the realities of prison life at the time of Dumas's novel. You can even take a boat here directly from the port.

Local Cuisine

The signature dish of Marseille is without a doubt the savory bouillabaisse. This savory fish stew is packed with an array of local seafood, including clams, white fish, mussels or lobster, and the broth is flavored with fennel and pastis, a local licorice-flavored liqueur — dive in with a crusty baguette for the full experience.

Shopping

Le Panier, just north of the port, dates back to 600 BC. While its colored walls, narrow streets and sunny squares once made up one of the poorest districts of the city, today it's filled with trendy independent boutiques, craft shops and galleries. Cruise to Provence and look for handmade savon de Marseille, the traditional green or white soap made with olive oil that has been exported from Marseille for centuries.

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.

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.
