Culinary Highlights
 
In Barcelona, wander about the stylish avenues and join in the rituals of the "tapeo,” which is the Spanish word for roaming from bar to bar, leavening one’s alcohol intake with tiny portions of superbly delicious food.

Enjoy gorgeous wines from Rioja, Penedes, Priorat and Ribera del Duero at prestigious and world- famous cellars and vineyards throughoutour route and discover impeccable finds from unknown wineries that are good enough to write home about. 

In San Sebastian, savor the exuberant and indulgent creations of restaurants such as Arzak, Akelare and Berasetegui and take in the history of the magical old quarter where pintxo bars (Basque tapas bars) showcase the abundance and astonishing variety of these delectable little nibbles. Take part in the intriguing and infamous heritage of the member-only "gastronomic societies," a truly unforgettable experience.

Feast on truffles and foie gras, exquisite meats, tender lamb and naturally-raised beef as well as the most irresistible seafood to be found in all of Europe.
