13 or 15 days
Rome, Florence, French Riviera, Provence, Barcelona, Madrid, extension to Valencia
Consider the Mediterranean Sea’s influence on the history— and modern culture—of three interconnected nations. From atop Montjuïc Hill in Barcelona, picture Christopher Columbus sailing into port to tell Queen Isabella I and King Ferdinand V of his voyage to the Americas. In Provence, notice how the lavender perfumes the salty sea air. And along the French Riviera, let  the natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere inspire you.
