Day 2 welcome to barcelona, spain

Today you will arrive in Barcelona. Once through customs, make your own way to the hotel for check in.

Spend the day exploring the Capital of Catalonia and Spain’s second city, Barcelona. It’s one of a few must-see cities with its own identity. This is partly down to a generation of early-20th-century artists and architects, like Antoni Gaudí, whose unforgettable buildings are like nothing you’ll see anywhere else.

There’s something to delight everyone in Barcelona. If you’re a food lover then the city has a total of 20 Michelin stars, and if you want culture you’ve got an inexhaustible choice of beautiful buildings and events. Add to this clean urban beaches, world-class nightlife and so much great shopping you won’t know where to begin.

Overnight: Catalonia Plaza Cataluña, Hotel SERHS Rivoli Rambla or similar
Meals included: None
Day 3 barcelona free day

Enjoy a day at leisure in stunning Barcelona. Take a stroll down Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s most famous street which was once a dry river bed. Now La Rambla is a 1200 metre boulevard lined with impressive human statues and artists. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce, specialty meats and treats. 

Admire the impressive towers of the Sagrada Familia. The Sagrada Família is famous for being one of the most iconic examples of Antoni Gaudí's unique style, combining elements of Art Nouveau, Catalan Modernism and Spanish Late Gothic design.

Casa Batlló is a building restored by Antonio Gaudí and Josep Maria Jujol, built in 1877. The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), as it has a visceral, skeletal organic quality. The building has a magical quality like everything Gaudí designed - is nothing short of impressive.

Find Ibiza's mellower side in the old town of Dalt Vila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site — see the medieval fortress and castle of Castell de Eivissa, and behold the simple Gothic beauty of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Snows.

Cool off in the Bajamar natural salt-water pools, or go scuba-diving among octopus and barracudas in Tabaiba (optional extras). When you're tired out from your adventure, head to a seaside restaurant for a glass of sangria and crusty bread slathered with almagrote, a local hard-cheese spread flavored with tomato, garlic and paprika.

In Downtown Miami, the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is a must-visit for its impressive collection of contemporary art of the Americas, as well as for its breathtaking architecture by Herzog & de Meuron, with Biscayne Bay as its backdrop.

Take a visit to Little Havana; a vibrant riverside neighbourhood known the world over for its colourful streets, family-run businesses, authentic restaurants and thriving arts scene.
