Charter a superyacht in Barcelona

21 January 2015

A cruise between Barcelona and Valencia is a chance to visit these fascinating cities from the luxurious comfort of your own yacht; both have marinas close to the city centres. Although each city has its own unique flavour, both are wonderful combinations of the old and the new.

With architecture dating back from pre-Roman times there is a wealth of history. And more modern arts are also celebrated, from Picasso’s fine museum in Barcelona to Gaudi’s amazing modernist buildings. You can also sample dishes that haven’t changed in hundreds of years, or enjoy the latest fusion cuisine.

This region is also a shopaholics dream; with Barcelona’s best shops set in its most architecturally fascinating road. Valencia offers the real Spanish experience with covered markets laden with fresh meats, nuts, fruits and vegetables.

A journey between these two great ports is a great chance to explore the cities on foot, enjoying pavement cafe-bars and discovering wonderful little shops as you marvel at the wonderful buildings. Then you can retreat away from the tourist hustle and bustle to the exclusive peace and tranquillity of your yacht, moving on when you’ve had your fill and want to explore the next port…
