My family has come to visit! It is their first time in Europe so we have created a very ambitious itinerary! We will be traveling completely by rail in France and Spain.
We spent a few days in Toulouse before taking the train down to Barcelona. Before heading back up to Carcassonne, France to see the castle. We then head over to Cassis to see the beautiful Calanques (small inlets from the Mediterranean with turquoise water bordered by steep cliffs). and relax on the beach. Then we go to Nice for a few days to see some of the sights and beaches. After that we will head up to Paris where we will spend the rest of the trip seeing the Eiffel Tower, Versailles, the Catacombs, etc. We will also go on a day trip to see Chateau Chambord.
In Barcelona, we plan on seeing things like the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlo, Casa Amatller, Parc Guell, etc. We will, of course, be getting paella!
We plan on seeing a few parks and gardens in Nice, as well as the Villa de Ephrussi Rotheschild which looks beautiful!
Joe will join us for a few days on our trip but he will spend his vacation exploring other areas of Southern France.
Here is a map of the route we will take.
I will make sure to post all of my pictures as soon as I get back!
