Located on the seashore between the mountains of Montjuïc and Tibidabo, Barcelona offers its many visitors a perfect blend of tradition and modernism. Truly an open-air museum, the "prodigious town" reveals an astonishing range of artistic treasures and museums, combining Roman ruins, medieval districts, and a number of avant-garde elements from the 20th century. Over the years, it has been marked by some of the greatest artists, such as Picasso, Miró, or Gaudí, most of whose work has been listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Take the time to stroll along the Ramblas and enjoy the gentle typically Mediterranean lifestyle of the capital of Catalonia.

Marina Di Carrara, Italy
7:00 AM 6:00 PM

Marina di Carrara is a seaside resort on the Tyrrhenian Coast, which enjoys a temperate climate year round. It is also the port from which the marble from the nearby Carrara quarries is exported. This extremely pure, very white, and very fine-grained marble has been used for sculpture and architecture since Roman antiquity. It was used to create some of the most stunning masterpieces from the Renaissance period, such as the statue of David by Michelangelo, who would travel to Carrara to choose his own blocks. Don't miss the visit to the fascinating marble museum and to the actual quarries, where you will be able to admire the titanic landscape shaped by the extraction of the enormous blocks of marble.
