Not only are we enamored with the Mediterranean lifestyle, but this tour packs three sought-after destinations into one easygoing journey through cultural hubs, ancient ruins and seaside villages. Read on to find out why we’re brushing off on our Romance languages and jetting off to southern Europe as soon as possible.
Spain’s cultural heart features art, music and an undeniable zest for life—all nestled between the shimmering Mediterranean and the scenic Pyrenees.
