Below you will find our itinerary:


DAY 1
May 15, 2018
Travel Day

Board your overnight flight, bound for Spain, where food and nightlife (and Felipe VI) are king. Cafes and restaurants line the streets, which is good, because Spanish tapas are must-try. And then try again. You know, for quality-testing purposes.


DAY 2
May 16, 2018
MADRID

Welcome to Madrid! Spain’s capital is famous for its world-class art museums, live music scene, and never-ending nightlife. It seems people never sleep here (except during siestas, because let’s face it, adults need naps, too). Madrid is a city that definitely knows how to have fun. Get ready—your life is about to get loco.  


Today's Highlights:Meet an EF representative at the airport.

Transfer to your accommodation and check in.

Receive the latest schedule from your Tour Director.

Meet your fellow travelers as they arrive

In the evening, it’s time for our Welcome Mixer. Enjoy appetizers and drinks with fellow travelers at an authentic local spot. Afterwards, take the party elsewhere.


DAY 3
May 17, 2018
MADRID

Today you'll see all the best Madrid has to offer with a local guide on a tour of the city. With a population of over 3 million people, Madrid is Spain’s biggest city (almost double that of Barcelona). One thing you’ll notice walking around, is that Madrileños love soccer. (Whatever you do, don’t mention Messi, Barcelona’s star player.) After continuing not to mention Messi, take the rest of the day to explore on your own.  


Today's Highlights:Meet your local guide and experience the city's highlights by bus and foot.

Visit Madrid's Royal Palace for a guided tour of this elaborate, 9th-century building featuring over 2,000 rooms and plenty of stuff you can't touch.

Stop at Puerta del Sol, the epicenter of the city, where stores and cafes are by the dozen, and people dressed up as Spider Man want you to take their picture.

Head into the Plaza Mayor, the Renaissance hub that witnessed everything from bullfights to weddings to public executions.

Go out on your own, and walk through Parque del Buen Retiro, Madrid's biggest park, and keep a lookout for the trees that look like broccoli (you'll know it when you see it).

DAY 4
May 18, 2018
BARCELONA

Grab a café con leche, and head to the train station. You’re going to Barcelona, a city of endless parties, wacky architecture, and premium beaches (which also happen to be where the clubs are). So throw on your walking shoes, your party pants, and any shirt you’d like. Barcelona is the fiesta that keeps on fiesta…ing.  


Today's Highlights:Cross traveling on a high-speed Spanish train off your list as you go from Madrid to Barcelona in less than three hours, at speeds of almost 200 mph.

Take an introductory walk of Barcelona with your Tour Director. (Stopping for tapas is not required, but highly encouraged.)

Stroll Las Ramblas, the main pedestrian thoroughfare lined with bars, cafes, shops and street performers (some more impressive than others).

Stop in Plaça de Catalunya, the city center where old meets new, and pigeons fly next to you, above you, and maybe even through your legs.

DAY 5
May 19, 2018
BARCELONA

Experience Barcelona’s unique architecture and atmosphere with a local guide as you wander the city’s enchanting streets. This historic city is home to nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, seven of which were built by Gaudi (he’s kind of a big deal around here). Take in the impressive sites, and understand why Barcelona is the only city to receive a Royal Gold Medal for architecture—the buildings are basically art.  


Today's Highlights:Explore the Gothic Quarter with your guide. Don't forget your black eyeliner (cue crickets).

Visit one of Antoni Gaudí’s greatest works of modernist art, Parque Güell. This colorful park is adorned with tilework, dreamlike structures and not a straight line anywhere.

See the 1992 Olympic Park which lines the Mediterranean Sea.

Check out the unfinished Sagrada Familia cathedral, where construction started over 100 years ago by Gaudí

DAY 6

Today's Highlights:Say adios to Barcelona and board a short flight to Paris.

Take a quick walk of the area with your Tour Director and your new BFF’s, AKA, your group.

DAY 8
May 22, 2018
PARIS

Explore the city of love, light, and haute couture with a local guide. If you come across a Statue of Liberty, don’t be alarmed—the champagne hasn’t gone to your head, Paris is actually home to multiple replicas, one of which faces her sister from another mister that stands in New York. Then, get into a royal state of mind on an optional excursion to Versailles, and ask the Hall of Mirrors who is the fairest of them all (it’s you, duh).

DAY 9
May 23, 2018
Enjoy a free day in Paris

Enjoy a full day exploring Paris on your own (cue happy dance). Wander through art museums, try new foods like coq au vin (AKA chicken), or grab a baguette and a bottle of wine for a picnic at the Champ de Mars. Oh, Paris. How we love you.


Today's Highlights:Relax on an open terrace, espresso in one hand and a croissant in the other. Yeah, this is the life.

Stand in awe among famous sites like Palais-Royal Gardens and Musee Rodin, and then realize your mouth’s been open for the last 15 minutes.

Visit Emmanuel, one of the ten massive bells hanging inside Notre Dame Cathedral.

The world is your Oyster Card! Your metro pass is included, so enjoy one last day exploring every corner of London (not literally, because the city borders aren’t square, but you get it). Hope you got your fill of high-tea, red busses, and weirdly named streets, because it’s already time to head to your next destination: Amsterdam. Bloody hell! Time flies.

May 27, 2018
AMSTERDAM

Welcome to Amsterdam! There’s so much to love, from the canals to Van Gogh to the legendary, laid-back attitude. Home of the famous Red Light District and a city that consists of more bikes than people, Amsterdam is one-of-a-kind. Seriously, how many cities do you know of with floating houses and hot waffles with caramel served anytime of the day. Today, you’ll experience the unique character of this city, guided by a local expert.

Der Wallen is the largest and most well-known red-light district in Amsterdam, and a popular tourist destination.

DAY 14
May 28, 2018
AMSTERDAM

By now, you’ve probably realized Amsterdam is not your average city. It’s a multicultural, waffle-filled, coffee-loving place, home to some really friendly people. Spend the day exploring on your own and get a feel for the city’s history and culture. Kick back at a canal-side restaurant, wander across a couple dozen bridges, or, if you’re brave, try the famous Hollandse Nieuwe (which is essentially pickled fish).


Today's Highlights:Make your way to Dam Square, the central public square of Amsterdam, and enjoy the happy, laid-back local attitude. We’re sure the coffee shops have nothing to do with that...

DAY 15
May 29, 2018
BERLIN

Next stop: Berlin! If this city were on a dating app (and there were such things as dating apps for cities), we would definitely swipe right. Nine times bigger than Paris, more bridges than Venice, nearly 200 museums, and nine castles within city limits, Berlin is quite possibly one of the most interesting cities you’ll ever meet. Plus, it’s got a hip, cutting-edge art scene that you can nod to and pretend to understand. Today's Highlights:Board your train from Amsterdam and practice saying "ein bier bitte."

Arrive in Berlin and get to know the area with your Tour Director.

Visit Hackescher Markt, a huge marketplace of unique shops, courtyards and nightlife in Berlin. Drop a pin, because this is a place worth revisiting.

Yeah, we wish we were as cool as Berlin, too.

Pay homage to the 6 million Jewish people who lost their lives during the Holocaust at the German Holocaust Memorial./li>
