So let’s discover them now! 


1. Discover one of the most important museums in the world.

​​

A must for those visiting the French capital


The Louvre Museum is one of the museums that everybody should visit at least once in a lifetime. It’s not only one of the main museums in France, but in the world too! So let’s go to this Parisian museum to gaze at “Mona Lisa”, or the “Venus of Milo”, at only a few centimetres far from you.



2. Get involved in traditional celebrations



Come enjoy celebrations of great renown or beauty

All the cities in Spain celebrate many events like the carnivals, Saint Valentin, Sant Jordi… In Catalonia, Easter is a good occasion to taste the Mona de Pascua and later in the year you can participate to the Sant Juan celebrations or to l’Ou com balla… then, the neighbourhood celebrations come one after another during the summer season so the most difficult thing to make is a choice! And if you cannot do it, go there several times! 

3. Taste other gastronomy

​French gastronomy is very famous because of its variety, its refinement and above all, its capacity to seduce everybody. There are many national dishes that you can taste all over the country, and each region has its own specialities. We recommend you to try the Aligot, (a kind of mashed potatoes with cheese), the cassoulet (a stew from Toulouse), the ratatouille (a kind of pistou from Provence), and the confit of duck. 

4. Enjoy the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada never mind the season



Enjoy the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean

For sure you will be seduced by the cities, the villages and the landscapes of the Mediterranean coast. If summer is the season that most of tourists choose to visit this place, you should (re)discover all the beauty of the region in autumn, in winter or in summer! 

5. Check how interesting the History is

Maybe you don’t like reading about the Middle Age, but what about seeing it? Visit Carcassonne and travel back to the past. Indeed, the city conserves many intact medieval vestiges. When you walk on its ramparts, and visit its churches and its castle, you will feel like in a tale.


6. Know one of the best conserved mudejar monuments in Spain

In a few hours, the Renfe-SNCF in Cooperation trains carry you to Zaragoza​ where the sumptuous Aljafería Palace, built in the XIth Century, reflection of the Taifa magnificence stands. 


7. Enjoy simple moments like a walk along the sea



A beautiful city in the Mediterranean

Marseille is one of the places where it is easy to enjoy the most simple things. The capital of the region Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur is one of the best places to fall in love with the deep blue of the Mediterranean sea. During your stay, you won’t need much more! 


8. Cultural activities! 

Have a look to the cultural agenda of Madrid and Barcelona; there is always a good reason to travel to Spain in 2019. Theatre, musicals, concerts, festivals… Many events to enjoy! 

9. Get inspired



Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Spanish cities 

It can be in Madrid, in Aragon or in Catalonia, Spain always inspires. To have a break and to enjoy exceptional landscapes, there is nothing better than travelling to these cities where the majestic architecture is a witness of their History.
