Buzzing Barcelona has it all: spectacular architecture from Gothic to Gaudi, outstanding food, art galleries, shopping, and golden beaches. Lose yourself in the atmospheric alleys of the Gothic Quarter, and watch street performers on Las Ramblas. Head to the elegant Eixample district to admire the organic lines of Gaudi’s architectural gems, including the unfinished basilica, La Sagrada Familia. Gaze at masterpieces in the Picasso Museum and wander through old Barceloneta for tapas on the beach.


Sicily has been a crossroads of culture in the Mediterranean for centuries, and as such, is filled with historical interest. In Palermo, the capital, visit the 9th-century Norman Palace and tour the eerie Capuchin Catacombs. From Messina, head for gorgeous Taormina, spilling over a hilltop with snow-capped Etna dominating the horizon beyond the spectacular Greco-Roman theater. Head up Etna to admire the lava flow, and taste wines grown in the rich volcanic soil.


The energetic port city of Naples is the gateway to the glorious Amalfi Coast, where the gelato-colored towns of Positano and Sorrento are the glamorous stars. Step back to AD79 on a visit to Pompeii, destroyed by the brooding volcano Vesuvius but perfectly preserved under the ash. In Naples itself, learn more about Pompeii in the Archaeological Museum, and explore the art collection of medieval Castel Nuovo. Make time for pizza, too; Naples is where the dish was invented.
