Barcelona
Avgår vid 5:00 PM
Det är lätt att förstå varför Barcelona är Spaniens mest välbesökta stad. Som huvudstad i regionen Katalonien är denna kulturella stad ett mosaikkonstverk som utgör en 2 000 år gammal blandning av solkyssta stränder, banbrytande arkitektur och en världsberömd scen för mat och dryck. Den katalanska arkitekten Antoni Gaudí lämnade sitt modernistiska avtryck över hela staden, medan andra medeltida skatter återfinns på de historiska torgen i Barri Gòtic. Här kan du gå vilse i sagoskimrande trädgårdar i Parc Güell eller ta en kurs i katalansk matlagningskonst. Se konstsamlingar dedikerade till Picasso och Miro eller ta linbanan högst upp på berget Montjuïc, där du kan njuta av den underbara utsikten över staden.

Förundras över de skyhöga spirorna och stig sedan in för att beundra den vackra mosaiken, Montjuïc-stenpelarna och fasaden som föreställer Jesu födelse. Du kan även klättra längst upp i spirorna för att få panoramautsikt över staden.

Om du vill prova på det katalanska köket kan du smaka pa amb tomàquet (tomattäckt bröd). Annars kan du mumsa på spanska tapas (små förrätter) vid baren som lokalbefolkningen, med husets egen vermouth i handen.

Local Cuisine

Most visitors will have tried sis kebab (grilled meat on a skewer) and doner kebab (meat shaved from a vertical skewer) before arriving in Turkey. Lamb is popular for both. Be sure to try kofte, spiced lamb or beef meatballs served with yogurt dipping sauce. Have a few meze (appetizers) to get your vegetable fix — great options include grilled eggplant salad and cicek dolmasi, fried squash flowers stuffed with raisins and rice.

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. Also consider a traditional Turkish kilim (a woven carpet) or a more luxurious knotted carpet. Cruise to Ephesus and look for handmade tiles and pottery in the Iznik design, with floral-inspired geometric patterns. Prices are negotiable, and the first offer by the vendor will be at least double what you should pay.

Santorini is one of the world’s most popular islands, known best for its dramatic scenery, whitewashed villages and fiery volcanic activity. Here adventure bubbles above the Aegean Sea in the most bold and breathtaking ways. A cable car takes you to the capital of Fira, a bustling cliff-top town awash with old cathedrals, enthralling museum collections and cozy tavernas. Venture to the coast for a swim in the deep blue waters that lap red and black pebbled beaches. And peel back layers of lava and history among excavated Akrotiri. Whether it’s by bicycle, ATV or on your own two feet, exploring this Cyclades isle never fails to impress.

Snap selfies with the blue-domed St. Gerasimos Church, and view Byzantine castle ruins. Or dine on Greek seafood in a waterfront taverna— also the perfect perch for watching Oia’s fabulous sunsets.

Anländer till 6:00 AM
Det är lätt att förstå varför Barcelona är Spaniens mest välbesökta stad. Som huvudstad i regionen Katalonien är denna kulturella stad ett mosaikkonstverk som utgör en 2 000 år gammal blandning av solkyssta stränder, banbrytande arkitektur och en världsberömd scen för mat och dryck. Den katalanska arkitekten Antoni Gaudí lämnade sitt modernistiska avtryck över hela staden, medan andra medeltida skatter återfinns på de historiska torgen i Barri Gòtic. Här kan du gå vilse i sagoskimrande trädgårdar i Parc Güell eller ta en kurs i katalansk matlagningskonst. Se konstsamlingar dedikerade till Picasso och Miro eller ta linbanan högst upp på berget Montjuïc, där du kan njuta av den underbara utsikten över staden.

SKYHÖGA SEVÄRDHETER

Ta en nära titt på La Sagrada Família, en katedral och mästerverk som ritades av den hyllade katalanska arkitekten Antoni Gaudí. Förundras över de skyhöga spirorna och stig sedan in för att beundra den vackra mosaiken, Montjuïc-stenpelarna och fasaden som föreställer Jesu födelse. Du kan även klättra längst upp i spirorna för att få panoramautsikt över staden.

FÅNGA DAGEN VID HAVET

Med sju stränder som sträcker sig över mer än 3 kilometer längs Medelhavets kustlinje är Barcelonas hamn känd för några av världens bästa sol- och badäventyr. Slappna av längs kusten, paddla kajak på djupblått vatten eller ge dig ut på en fisketur för att få chansen att dra upp tonfisk, svärdfisk eller medelhavsspjutfisk.

MITT I ALLT

Ta en promenad längs gågatan La Rambla och upplev stadens sanna anda. Souvenirbutiker, gatuartister, blomsterstånd, trottoarkaféer och katalanska folkdansare gör detta till en färgstark plats. Den fantastiska mittpunkten, katedralen, härstammar från 1100-talet och från tornet kan du njuta av en hisnande utsikt över medeltida Barcelona.

DET LOKALA KÖKET

Barcelona har bemästrat konsten att äta. Många restauranger serverar kreativt nytt spanskt kök, medan restauranger närmare vattnet serverar skaldjurspaella och lunchmenyer med flera rätter som omfattar ett glas mousserande cava. Om du vill prova på det katalanska köket kan du smaka pa amb tomàquet (tomattäckt bröd). Annars kan du mumsa på spanska tapas (små förrätter) vid baren som lokalbefolkningen, med husets egen vermouth i handen.

SHOPPING

Du kan ägna många timmar åt att gå runt på marknaderna i Barcelona för att hitta läderkläder, smycken, gamla böcker och unika hushållsföremål av hög kvalitet. Passeig de Gràcia och Barcelona Shopping Line är två populära shoppinggator, och i de gotiska kvarteren, Barri Gòtic, finns tiotals familjeägda butiker som säljer textilier, brevpapper, dekorativa kakelplattor och lergods för köket.
