Setting sail from Barcelona

Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia, is one of our favourite ports of call. From the warren-like medieval streets of the Barri Gòtic to the fantastical modernist architecture of Antoni Gaudí, from the dizzy heights of Mount Tibidabo to the golden sands of Barceloneta, there's never a dull moment in this most beguiling of cities. Take a stroll along the Ramblas, soak up the wonderful art of Picasso and Miró, or watch Lionel Messi work his mesmerising magic at the Camp Nou. Barcelona is truly a city with something for everyone.

Our tip

For the ultimate boozy lunch head to Can Paixano, also known as La Xampanyeria, where local residents, office workers and the odd adventurous tourist crowd around the bar and tuck into sandwiches washed down with Cava.

Arriving in Stockholm

The buzzing city of Stockholm is the capital of Sweden. Visitors are captivated by the busy waterfront, the beautiful cobbled streets in the Gamla Stan, or Old Town, the museums, palaces, gardens and galleries, whilst a mere 20 minutes away, Stockholm's archipelago of 30,000 islands offers its own delights, not least some serene tranquillity. The city itself features trend-setting restaurants, a vibrant nightlife and a rich cultural heritage. Many interesting excursions from the city centre ensure that a prolonged stay will be both stimulating and varied.

Don't miss

Walk through Gamla Stan, the medieval city centre, a living pedestrian-friendly museum full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars and places to shop.
