Barcelona & San Sebastian: Culinary Capitals

12 DAYS, 11 NIGHTS

“I realized very early the power of food to evoke memory, to bring people together, to transport you to other places” -- Jose Andres

 

Start this tour of the Culinary Capitals of Spain in beautiful Barcelona. Here you’ll lose yourself in the passion of Catalonian art, architecture, and a distinct culinary tradition. We’ll take you down intimate side streets for hidden culinary experiences that only locals know about. We’ll taste sweet langoustines, delicious tapas, and world-class local wines.

 

Known for its fierce Catalonian identity, Barcelona is also home to unique and quirky designs chiefly promoted by the works of Antonio Gaudí. Enjoy a private tour to the world-famous Sagrada Familia and climb the spiral staircase to towering heights for a stunning view of Barcelona. Other Gaudí highlights include: Casa Batlló, Casa Mila, and Park Güell.

 

From Barcelona, we’ll disembark at our next culinary capital, the renowned Michelin star destination of Europe, San Sebastián. Here you’ll experience chefs who are at once pushing the boundaries of gastronomic innovation and also deeply rooted in the traditional “slow-food” methodology with food sourced from local origins. 

 

Your final stop on this culinary adventure is the La Rioja wine region where we’ll indulge in some of the best wines Spain has to offer.  

Price Starts at  $11,600 pp
