Days 1 – 3: Sunday – Tuesday, Barcelona
Barcelona is jam-packed full of unique things to see and do which is why it’s such a loved place by its visitors! Our first two nights are spent finding out why this city makes people yearn to come back over and over again. We’ll check out some famous spots together such as the Sagrada Familia, and Las Ramblas then take in the view from the best vantage point atop Mont Juic while sipping the finest Sangria. Our first meeting time on day 1 is at 4pm where we’ll all meet together to start our adventure!
Days 4 – 6: Wednesday – Friday, Granada
The famous Alhambra looms over the quaint, picturesque, traditionally Andalusian streets, all set against the background of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains. “Can’t miss” items in this gorgeous town include visiting the hill-top Alhambra at sunset, taking in a local flamenco show, and checking out the many parks, streets, and buildings dating back to the time of the Moorish rule. Whether you’d like to take a Spanish cooking course here, take a day trip up to the Sierra Nevada mountains, or maybe even visit local wineries, you’ll have plenty of options to keep you as busy as you’d like.
Days 7 – 9: Saturday – Monday, Seville
Seville (or “Sevilla” as the locals call it) is incredibly rich in history and is the home to many things that scream “Spain!” including bull-riding, flamenco, and paella. It’s also known as being one of the most romantic cities in Spain with romance in the air at every turn. Of course there’s also a very lively gay community here too if you’re looking to meet some locals! All of this makes Seville a perfectly well-rounded city with beauty, history, and culture galore.
Days 10 – 11: Tuesday – Wednesday, Stiges
Right up there with Mykonos, Key West, and Ipanema, Sitges has marked its spot on the world’s gay map. But instead of the massive beach parties, Sitges is actually a very “homey” and cute beachside town that attracts a more low-key and social crowd than others on the list. Sure there are plenty of gay bars here, but there’s also a feeling of community and relaxation that will have you feeling like you could live here forever! While you’re here we’d suggest taking a wine tour, getting in the sparkling blue Mediterranean, or checking out one of the many museums.
Day 12: Thursday, Stiges & Barcelona
Our 12th and final day is when most travelers depart, but if you’ve got the time we really suggest spending some more time in this beautiful area! Our final night of this trip is spent in Sitges which is only 20 minutes from Barcelona airport, meaning you’ll have easy access from our Sitges hotel to the airport for your trip home.
