This 7-day self-guided European vacation kicks off with three days in Paris, where you’ll stay minutes from the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, and Notre Dame Cathedral. A short flight will take travelers to Barcelona, the city renowned for its whimsical Gaudi architecture, bullfighting rings, and the Picasso Museum, which showcases some of the famous painter’s more rare early works.<p>
Paris has been described as the “City of Light” and “a feast for the senses.” During a 3-day stint in Paris, you’ll stay at the Pavilion Bercy, just footsteps from the breathtaking Seine River. If you follow the river northwest for about 5 miles, you’ll reach the Eiffel Tower. Once ridiculed as “the world’s greatest lamppost,” the 1,000-ft iron structure is one of the world’s most-visited sites. Ride its glass elevator to the 2nd level, or pay a little extra to go to the top.
If you’re looking for lesser-known Parisian attractions, visit the Bois de Vincennes, just a few miles from the hotel. At this public park, visitors can row boats on Lac Daumesnil or rent bikes to tour the flower-lined paths. Often overlooked, the Basilica of St Denis in Paris’s northern suburbs typifies Gothic art and medieval architecture with its vibrant stained-glass windows, archways, and funerary sculptures commemorating fallen royalty.
This package also includes a tasting at one of Paris’s fine wineries.
When Christopher Columbus returned from his maiden voyage to America, he landed in Barcelona to report to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand V. Today, that occasion is memorialized by the Columbus Monument, which sits along the waterfront at the end of La Rambla, Barcelona’s main thoroughfare. Here, fortune tellers, florists, and buskers fill the streets, providing ample photo ops and a surreal experience for visitors.
Head off in any direction from La Rambla to see this modern metropolis’s historic side—from its centuries-old public market to the Art Nouveau influence of architect Antoni Gaudi. You’ll take a 2.5-hour tour of perhaps his most famous work, Sagrada Familia, an otherworldly, unfinished cathedral that’s been under construction since the 1880s. Sagrada Familia’s exterior looks unlike any other church—keep an eye out for the lizard and snail statues along its beehive-like spires. On the inside, you’ll see stained-glass windows, colorful mosaics, and towering pillars designed to look like a forest canopy.
Your Barcelona headquarters will be at the posh HCC Open or HCC Lugano. Both hotels are about ten minutes from La Rambla.
