3 Night cruise sailing roundtrip from Barcelona onboard Azamara Quest.
Planning a weekend away? How about exploring Spain and France on a luxury boutique hotel at sea? Before your journey departs from Barcelona, let yourself be taken in by the city’s many charms as you stroll past medieval buildings, and Gaudi-style homes.
Wake up the next morning in charming Toulon, France. Prepare to be blown away—both literally (the climate is distinctive for more than 30 different types of wind that blow in from all points) and figuratively (by the many charms of this ancient port). Indulge in plenty of fresh seafood and tasty treats like chichi frégi, a type of donut, and cade toulonnaise, a savory pancake made from chickpea flour.
Then it’s on to Palamos, Spain which sits right in the heart of the Costa Brava, the Wild Coast, deriving its name from the rugged, rocky shoreline, punctuated by excellent beaches and picturesque fishing villages. For a change of pace, and a day of the bizarre and surreal, consider a trip to Figures, home to the museum of its famous and eccentric native son, Salvador Dali, he of the extravagant mustache and melting pocket watches.
Your voyage concludes back in Barcelona. Consider staying an extra night or two before you head home, and leave time to visit Las Ramblas, a delightful tree-lined boulevard and center of activity. Enjoy a pleasant stroll of the city’s lively promenade, full of shops, cafes, and flower stalls. Come to think of it, you may never want to leave.
