During our stay, we also enjoy brunch (served daily from 8am until 12pm) and a 50% discount on all drinks and snacks (everyday between 2pm and 5pm). Calella is home to three big, beautiful beaches with sparkling waters - all within walking distance from our hotel. The Playa Grande is situated just in front of our hotel and features the Beach Club of Hotel Volga (fully equipped with lounge chairs, umbrellas, a bar, restaurant and entertainment). Away from the beaches, throughout the town, you can discover a fascinating blend of old and new.


No holiday to Catalonia would be complete without a visit to beautiful Barcelona! The cosmopolitan seaside city, with a history among the oldest in Europe. Visit the Park Guell, one of Gaudi's major works for spectacular views over the city or head to the Sagrada Familia - now the emblem of Barcelona - this incredible unfinished cathedral was the work of architect Antoni Gaudi


Today you can join us for an optional excursion to Montserrat, a rocky mountain range and Santa Maria de Montserrat, a Benedictine monastery, that sits at the top of the mountain. Inside this fascinating monastery is a statue of the Virgin of Montserrat, one of the few black Madonna's in Europe and is Catalonia's most important religious retreat*. For those of you who don't wish to join us, you can enjoy a day at leisure. Please note: Price does not include any of the Monserrat Funiculars.


Our first visit today is to Girona, renowned for its medieval architecture, walled Old Quarter and the Roman remains of the Forca Vella fortress. Walk along its ancient fortress walls for breathtaking views, discover the splendour of the wonderfully preserved Jewish Quarter or visit its spectacular landmarks including The Placa de la Catedral, which has a grand staircase leading up to it and was used during the filming of Game of Thrones. After some free time, we travel to Besalu, a magnificent example of a medieval town for some more free time.

DAY 9 - 10

Enjoy free time over the next couple of days.

DAY 11

After breakfast we travel to Pals, known as one of the most charming villages in the Costa Brava. Perched on a hilltop, it was built around a fortress and has kept its medieval look. Stroll around the historical centre, beautifully preserved you can take in its authentic beauty and history and enjoy surprising details and architectural features such as picturesque arches and doorways, with flowers adding colour to the pretty stone walls. After some free time, we travel to Tossa De Mar, an ancient fisherman's village with an important historical background that has become a well-known tourist destination on the Costa Brava.

DAY 12

We return to our overnight hotel.

DAY 13

We retrace our footsteps back through Europe, returning home later this evening.
