Day One

Fly to Spain.

 

Day Two

Arrive in Barcelona. We will visit Casa Batllo and Casa Mila today, both designed by Gaudi. Casa Batllo is a traditional Catalan home, while Casa Mila features impressive sculptures on its rooftop. Another site worth visiting is Las Ramblas, a lively area with old buildings, shops, and restaurants. Lastly, there is La Boqueria, which is the main market in Barcelona.

 

Day Three

Enjoy a full day in Barcelona. Barcelona has many interesting places to visit, including the Gothic Quarter, which is the oldest part of the city and boasts ancient ruins and a stunning cathedral. Another must-visit location is Montjuic Hill and Castle, which offers breathtaking views of Barcelona. There are plenty of activities to do on the hill, including exploring the sites that were used during the 1992 Summer Olympics. If you're interested in learning about the different regions and cultures surrounding Spain, head to Poble Espanyol, a hands-on museum. Lastly, the Magic Fountain at the steps of the National Museum of Catalan Art offers a mesmerizing light show in the evening.

 

Day Four

Today in Barcelona we will see Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's most famous structure and an iconic landmark of the city. Another interesting site to visit is the Recinte Modernista Sant Pau, a former hospital that was redesigned to promote peace and comfort for patients. The site has been recognized by UNESCO for its modernist architecture. Lastly, we will head to Park Guell, another one of Gaudi's creations, and take in the beautiful views of the city from the park's overlook. The park is also known for its stunning tile work, which is a hallmark of Barcelona's architecture.

 

Day Five

Your itinerary today includes flying to Porto and taking a coach tour to see some of the city's sights that are not close to the town center. The tour will include a visit to Castelo do Quejo, which is a historic castle that offers stunning views of the surrounding area. Additionally, you'll get to enjoy a food tour of Porto for dinner, which is an excellent way to sample the city's famous cuisine and experience the local culture.

 

Day Six

During your trip to Porto, you'll have the opportunity to take a boat tour of the Douro Valley, which will allow you to explore the hidden beauty of this stunning valley including a winery. Learn the process of wine-making and explore some of the most beautiful wineries in the world (if you do not drink alcohol, grape juice will be provided). Another must-visit location we will see is Palacio do Bolsa, a historic building that was once a stock exchange and now serves as a symbol of Porto's rich history. The Luis I Bridge is another amazing landmark- it offers stunning views of the banks of Porto and is an impressive feat of engineering. Lastly, we will be sure to visit the Porto Cathedral, a beautiful religious site that has been standing for centuries and is a testament to Porto's cultural heritage.

 

Day Seven

Travel today on  a bus to Lisbon. On our day trip, we will stop in Nazare to have lunch and explore a few sights. Once we arrive in Lisbon, there are several must-visit landmarks. The Belem Tower is a 16th-century fortification that played a significant role in the history of Portugal. The tower served as a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon and as a point of embarkation and disembarkation for Portuguese explorers. The Jeronimos Monastery is another must-visit location and was formerly a monastery of the Order of Saint Jerome. Lastly, we will visit the Padrao dos Descobrimentos Monument, built-in 1939 to honor the Portuguese Discoveries of the golden XV and XVI centuries. The monument is an impressive tribute to Portugal's rich history and is a popular tourist destination.

 

Day Eight

While in Lisbon, you'll have the opportunity to visit some fascinating landmarks. Sao Jorge Castle is an old historic castle that has been occupied since at least the 8th century BC. The castle's fortifications date back to the 1st century BC and offer stunning views of the surrounding area. The Lisbon Cathedral is another must-visit location and is the main cathedral of Portugal/Lisbon. The Praca do Comercio is a large harbor-facing plaza that offers a great place to relax and soak in the city's atmosphere. The Carmo Convent is another historic site that is worth a visit. While the cathedral has lost its walls and ceiling, the remaining ruins are still beautiful. Lastly, we will see the Rossio Square, a local square that comes alive in the evening and offers a glimpse into Lisbon's vibrant nightlife.

 

Day Nine

Today we will take a day-trip to Sintra. We will see the Pena Palace, which  is a 19th-century Romanticist architecture, historic estate and villa, gardens, and royal palaces and castles. The palace is considered the gem of Portugal and was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Moorish Castle is another historic castle located on a hilltop that offers fantastic views of the surrounding valley. Quinta da Regaleria is a beautiful area with water features, plants, underground tunnels, and interesting architecture. Lastly, if we have extra time on this day, we will  visit the Palacio de Monserrate, another stunning palace with beautiful gardens and architecture.
