Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue

Long stretches of golden sand, dramatic rocky shores, and turquoise waters await you on this 10-day itinerary across some of Europe's most enchanting coastal cities and towns, along with delicious and varied cuisines. Your trip starts in Barcelona, the city that Gaudi graced with his genius and adorned with numerous spectacular buildings. Apart from chilling at the urban beach of La Barceloneta, from Barcelona, you can also explore the famed Costa Brava before you continue your trip to Nice, the perfect city to use as a gateway to the entire French Riviera and its charms. No trip to discover the coastal gems of Europe would be complete without a stop at Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. From getting lost in the quaintness of the small towns that dot this part of Italy to taking a ferry to the cosmopolitan island of Capri, the Amalfi Coast is the perfect ending to your fascinating European adventure.

Our team members in Spain, France, and Italy will be available to you leading up to and during your trip to answer any questions and arrange local services. You will receive access to your Guest Page, with its information on the best these destinations offer, including things to see and do, and other inside tips from restaurant recommendations to tipping advice.
