Barcelona, Spain — 8 nights

Jewel of the Mediterranean

Barcelona, the country’s second-largest city, is a cosmopolitan urban center known for its throbbing youthful energy and stellar architecture.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya - MNAC and CosmoCaixa Barcelona. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Basilica de la Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Barcelona: Girona (Girona Cathedral & Patronat Call de Girona), Playa de la Pineda (in La Pineda) and Salou (Illuminated Fountain & Cala Crancs). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Templo del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus, appreciate the extensive heritage of Plaça de Sant Felip Neri, explore the world behind art at Casa Vicens, and contemplate the long history of The Carmel Bunkers.

Manosque, France — 7 nights

Manosque is the largest town and commune in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department in southeastern France. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Les Gorges du Verdon and Notre Dame de Beauvoir. Get a sense of the local culture at La Citadelle de Sisteron and L'Art En Jouet. Venture out of the city with trips to Le Circuit de la Vieille Ville et les Andrones (in Sisteron), Aeroclub Sisteron (in Vaumeilh) and Basilique Sainte-Marie-Madeleine (in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Lac de Sainte-Croix, examine the collection at Fondation Carzou, don't miss a visit to Centre Ville, and look and learn at Observatoire Astronomique de Bauduen.
