Get special access and behind-the-scenes perspectives on some of the iconic sights and hidden wonders of this Mediterranean capital city. You will be intrigued, entranced, and surprised at every step during a week of new and unusual experiences. Wandering through Barcelona’s historic streets and squares, we'll discover marvelous locations such as a Baroque anatomical amphitheater, a theatrical designer's atelier, and subterranean bomb shelters. In addition, our explorations of history, culture, and spectacle will take place during one of the most exciting times in the year: Carnival. During our time together, we'll celebrate Carnival with shows inspired by the golden age of classical music and cabaret in Barcelona, and don our best outfits for a private Carnival Gala inside a Belle Époque atelier. Whether it will be your first time in Barcelona or your fifth, this adventure is an extraordinary opportunity to fully immerse yourself in one of the most diverse and breathtaking cities in Europe.
We recommend you have a medium fitness level to fully participate in this trip. You should be comfortable staying on your feet for long stretches at a time, and walking anywhere between 3 to 6 miles a day. We will be out and about most of each day, with time to rest at lunch and dinner, both of which will take place on the later side.
