¡Bienvenidos a España! Meet your ACIS Tour Manager in Barcelona, capital of Catalonia and Spain’s second largest city. Founded by the Romans in the 3rd century BC, it’s known for its artistic treasures and fine architecture from Gothic to Modernist. Take time to wander the old town and acquaint yourself with this vibrant culture, including an evening stroll down the famous La Rambla.
Begin your day with a sightseeing tour. Our local expert will point out all the major highlights of Barcelona, including the unique Gaudí-designed houses. Antoni Gaudí, one of Catalonia's most famous sons, was a Modernist architect whose distinctive style is revered to this day. After, you'll be able to study the intricate design inside and out of his still-unfinished Sagrada Familia and stroll whimsical Parc Güell. In the afternoon perhaps visit the unique Palau de la Música or relax on one of the city's beautiful beaches.
Take in the street scene of this culturally rich city via a
bike tour that takes you through Ciutadella Park and to the Olympic Port, a lively marina that hosted sailing events during the 1992 Summer Olympics. Then walk through the narrow cobbled streets, peaceful squares and towering old buildings that characterize Barri Gòtic (the city’s Gothic Quarter) which was at times home to both Picasso and Joan Miró. The afternoon is yours to further connect with Barcelona’s strong cultural identity, perhaps by visiting the Picasso Museum or tasting traditional foods at the bustling and colorful La Boqueria market. Tonight, you may choose to take in an optional flamenco show.
This morning, we switch gears and fly to Berlin, one of Europe's most dynamic cities. While Berlin was divided, Eastern and Western sections maintained separate opera houses and other institutions. Now the united city offers two of everything, and is known as a hub of European innovation. We'll begin our introduction to Berlin with a visit to the dome and rooftop terrace of the Reichstag Building, home to the German Parliament.
We’ll get right to the heart of Berlin’s World War II and Cold War heritage with guided visits to a remaining portion of the Berlin Wall, the Holocaust Memorial, Potsdamer Platz and Checkpoint Charlie. In the afternoon, we’ll visit the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial, a vivid reminder of the war’s darkest chapter.
Since the fall of the Berlin wall, the city has been on the cutting edge of “street art” and you’ll get an insider’s view of Berlin’s street culture with a
street art workshop. Learn about this edgy modern art movement during a walking tour that will reveal many examples, including stencil art, paste-ups, graffiti, murals and tagging. In addition local experts will show you how to make your own street-savvy artwork, which you’ll take home as a one-of-a-kind personal souvenir. After, find more of your favorite spots on your final day in Europe. Perhaps take in Museum Island, the food stalls of Markthalle Neun or the paths of the Tiergarten.
