Paris, Barcelona, with extension to Bilbao
You can learn a lot about a city on its grandest boulevards. The Champs-Élysées in Paris has witnessed many historical moments, and today it’s the number one symbol of France’s affinity for fashion. On Las Ramblas in Barcelona, Spanish guitarists play flamenco rhythms, and the sights and sounds reveal a stimulating blend of local traditions and international buzz.

    Taste of Spain

    It’s one thing to sit down at a dinner table and try regional cuisine; it’s quite another thing to first visit a local market and pick out the ingredients for the meal. This is your opportunity to do both—and gain a true understanding of Catalan culture. At the market, an amazing variety of local fruit, vegetables, fish, and meat await. Take your groceries back to your cooking class, where you’ll learn professional techniques and tips as you prepare your meal.
