Catalonia Vacation Packages

Enjoy the seaside charms, cultural sites, lively cities and natural splendor of a fascinating region that sits in Spain's northeast corner.

Catalonia is a vibrant and passionate region of Spain with a proud culture and history. Its landscape ranges from the tall peaks of the Pyrenees to the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Throughout the province you’ll discover medieval and modernist architecture and the fantastic creations of Salvador Dalí.

Many visitors to Catalonia make Barcelona their first port of call. The second-largest city in Spain, and the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona sits between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of the Serra de Collserola.

Take a walk along Barcelona’s Las Ramblas, a tree-lined boulevard popular with locals and visitors, to get a feel for the city. The bustling street connects with the Plaça de Catalunya, a large plaza in the center of the city. Explore the city's architecture, including the old buildings of the Gothic Quarter and Antoni Gaudi’s modernist masterpieces, such as his unfinished Sagrada Familia (Church of the Holy Family). Go shopping on the Passeig de Gràcia and at La Boqueria Market before heading to the edge of town to relax on one of the city’s beaches.

For more beach fun, head down the coast to the Costa Brava. This long stretch of coastline has miles of sandy expanses that include horseshoe bays, secluded coves and popular resort towns like Pineda and Tossa de Mar. Swim, sunbathe, scuba dive and windsurf in the warm Mediterranean water before retreating to a traditional restaurant to dine with views of the water.

The Costa Brava is where you will find plenty of art, history and outdoor adventures. Visit the village of Cadaqués to see the former home of Salvador Dalí, now a fascinating museum. Tour the old Roman Ruins of Empuries and the remains of the medieval castle at Begur or hike in the Cap de Creus Natural Park. During the winter, skiers flock to Girona Pyrenees for excellent snow conditions.

Reach Catalonia by flying into the international airports at either Barcelona or Girona. If you want to explore, renting a car is the most convenient way to see the region's coastline, countryside, towns and cities, although it is possible to travel across the province by bus and rail.

Q: Should I book a car while on vacation in Catalonia?

A: Experience Barcelona like a local. Get around the sights of Tarragona with ease. Not only will a rental car make things simpler, it'll make them more fun too.
