Tour Itinerary

 

Day 1

After an early morning home pick-up, we make our way across the Channel to our overnight stop.

 

Day 2

We arrive at our hotel in time for a welcome drink, before dinner is served.

 

Day 3 Cadaqués

This morning we travel to the pretty white-washed town of Cadaqués, a favourite of Salvador Dali. Upon arrival we enjoy a day at leisure, exploring Cadaqués' maze of quaint, narrow streets, stylish art galleries, cafés and seafood restaurants.

 

Day 4 Roses

We spend today relaxing in Roses. Paddle in the crystal-clear waters on its endless beaches, stroll along the lively promenade or explore the streets of the old town. You can even take a trip on a glass-bottomed boat for a scenic view of the coastline (not included in price).

 

Day 5 Little Yellow Train

This morning we head to Villefranche-de-Conflent, a medieval town deep in a French mountain valley. From here, we board the Little Yellow Train for a journey to Latour-de-Carol. Our journey takes approximately 3 hours as we climb from the valley of the Têt River through the stunning scenery of the Pyrenees.

 

Day 6 Barcelona

No visit to the Costa Brava would be complete without a trip to Barcelona, the stylish capital of Catalonia. We start with a leisurely stroll along the wide promenade of Las Ramblas, before exploring the narrow alleyways, boutique shops and hidden tapas bars. Along the route, we glimpse the eye-catching buildings of Antoni Gaudí, Spain's most visionary architect. The most famous of these, Park Güell and the magnificent Church of the Sagrada Família, are also on our itinerary. We spend the rest of the day at leisure exploring this beautiful city.

 

Day 7 Besalú & Girona

This morning we head to the historic gem of Besalú, a magnificent medieval town and one of the best preserved in Spain. Full to the brim with character, we meander down its cobbled streets, admire the ancient facades of its impressive and varied architecture, and see the magnificent Viejo Bridge.

In the afternoon we make our way to the historic city of Girona. We explore its beautiful Roman walled old quarter, Força Vella, which is dominated by the 11th century Cathedral tower and baroque facade. Its Gothic nave is the largest of its kind in the world! Located within the Força Vella is the Jewish Quarter (or 'Call'). A labyrinth of narrow medieval streets and passageways makes this area one of the most picturesque in Catalonia. Other attractions to explore in Girona include the 12th century Arab Baths, and the Basílica de Sant Feliu, with its priceless works of art.

 

Day 8

After breakfast, we retrace our steps back to our overnight hotel

 

Day 9

We cross the Channel and begin our journey home.
