  • Barcelona, Valencia, Marbella, Malaga8 days
About

Starting in Barcelona and ending in Marbella, this spectacular Mediterranean road trip takes you along Spain’s ‘wild’ coast, gold coast and sun coast, travelling through colourful towns and lively cities, past sparkling seas and green orange groves, and past wonderful landscapes that have inspired some of the great Spanish artists of our time including Picasso, Dali and Chagall.

You should experience it because...

Each of Spain’s ‘costas’ (coasts) differ in both style and landscape. Get to know the ‘wild’ coast around Barcelona that has drawn artists and writers for many years, explore the ‘gold’ coast with its dramatic cliffs and hidden caves, and enjoy the ‘sun’ coast that has Europe’s highest number of guaranteed sunny days.

Coastal gems and colourful culture

See a window in to Catalan culture as you walk down La Rambla, Barcelona’s most famous street, full of cultural centres, theatres and architecturally inspiring buildings.

Surreal doesn’t begin to describe the Dali Museum in Figueres, or the wild coast of the artist’s home at Cap de Creus.

Las Fallas Festival – a magnificent week of fireworks, processions, and a finale of spectacular bonfires, in Valencia – one of the best festivals in Europe.

Summer is the high travel season in the Mediterranean. The weather is hot and sunny, the water is warm, and millions of people flock to the coast to soak up the sun and take a break from routine.. During the spring months, the flowers are blooming and the landscape is verdant, while autumn days are mild and clear before the winter rains.

Those wanting to travel earlier in the season can visit some of the more southern destinations as well as the larger Mediterranean islands. Cyprus and Malta are lovely in April, with warm days and pleasant nights. Late March through April is also an ideal time to visit Morocco, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, and Turkey.
