Saturday, June 20 - BARCELONA, SPAIN (EMBARKATION)

Formerly a sleepy Spanish city, Barcelona has recently been reborn as an eclectic fusion of the modern and medieval. This coastal city exudes European charm and welcomes multitudes of travelers every year. It's a major destination with must-see architectural gems that date back some 2,000 years. You'll encounter fascinating examples from the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, the Modern masters like Gaudi, and many Catalunian greats. Outstanding art museums can be found throughout the city, proudly displaying the works of world-renowned artists and countrymen, including Goya, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, and Joan Miro. For a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city center, venture to the awaiting Mediterranean Sea and all the seaside has to offer. Maybe a brisk hike in the nearby forest covered Collserola Hills or the hilltop in Montjuic with its botanical gardens is the perfect recharge for a rollicking evening in one of the premier party capitals of the world.0

Here, you can walk over glass floors, looking down at a stunning assemblage of ruins excavated in the area.
