Discover Barcelona at your leisure as you spend two nights in one of the most beautiful and vibrant capitals of the Mediterranean. Well known for its history, cuisine and contemporary architecture, Barcelona is a city made up of both modern and ancient delights. Its Roman ruins tell tales of a fallen empire, and the Ciutat Vella—the Old Town—invites long strolls along narrow, winding pedestrian streets and past old markets, theaters and pastry shops. Marvel at the genius of Antonio Gaudì, admiring the Modernist facades of his buildings and the famous Sagrada Familia, as well as his playful Parc Guell with its colored mosaics of trees. Seven properties built by Gaudì are UNESCO Word Heritage Sites, testifying to his exceptional contribution to the development of architecture and building technology in the 20th century. You might also visit his Casa Battlò, La Pedrera and Casa Martì—close to the famous Boquerìa covered market. Explore the medieval Barri Gotic neighborhood, with its Jewish Quarter, home to The Cathedral of Barcelona. Many sites are within walking distance of your centrally located Barcelona hotel on Plaza Catalunya. Be sure to enjoy delicious paella at the Barceloneta old port, or a stroll down the lively Ramblas Boulevard. And during a leisurely walk to the sea, you may wish to experience the vibrant colors of the scented flower market, or stop at Pasteleria Escribà to taste its delicious crema catalana.

Only available with the Air Inclusive Package.
