Day 3: La Spezia and Cinque Terre

Today we're headed to the enchanting coastline of the Cinque Terre.  There's lots to see here in the '5 Lands', but we've made it easy for you to explore with an unlimited train-and-hike travel card (included in the price of your trip.) This evening, you'll have the chance to join a boat cruise and watch the sumptuous sunset from out at sea. Does it get better than this? Really though? Back in La Spezia for the evening, you get one last night here to really get to know the charming landscapes and locals before we head off to Nice in the morning. Make the most of it!

Day 7: Marseille to Barcelona

See ya France, we're headed to another magical country this morning – but not before breakfast.

Day 8: Barcelona

They say this city sizzles and we couldn't agree more. Today is all yours to explore! For a taste of what you can do, here's just a start of the never-ending list: channel Gaudi at Sagrada Familia, his greatest masterpiece, started in 1882. This labour of love is still not compete, but is still a worthy memory and insta upload. Parc Guell could be next on the list - or maybe take to the backstreets for some endless tapas and paella, washed down with sangria. Fancy cooling down? Head to the golden sands of Barcelona's beach, the cherry on top this incredible city. This evening, it’s time to MAKE TRAVEL MATTER ® in the tastiest way possible – through food of course. You’ll try your hand at cooking, and have dinner at Espai Mescladis, a non-profit whose restaurant is working to foster social cohesion within the city.
