Day 1: Madrid – Barcelona – Ferry

Enough of lessons! Prepare your luggage and take a coat, because the great winter Eurotrip is commencing. Leave the stress at home and set off to Barcelona, our first destination in this huge winter trip during Christmas holidays.

We will depart from Madrid at night so that we can arrive in Barcelona early in the morning and enjoy the beauty and all the corners that have converted this city in the world’s capital of tourism: from the Sagrada Familia to Passeig de Gracia, walking down the legendary Ramblas and the gothic quarter with its impressive cathedral.

Towards the end of the day, we will voyage across the Mediterranean sea. We will spend the night in an elegant cruise, with all kinds of services that will make the journey very enjoyable: a club, videogames room, restaurants, 24h cafes,  pool, gym, health center, casino… So order that gin tonic, and take in that warm mediterranean breeze.

Day 2: Ferry – Rome

After a whole day enjoying the Mediterranean breeze, we will arrive at Civitavecchia and our Eurobus will take us to the former Caput Mundi is known as the “Eternal City” and everything has an explication. Time appears to have ceased here hundreds of years back, given the large number of remaining monuments and rests of imposing buildings, which turns strolling through the lanes into a trip back so the capital’s golden age.

Day 3: Rome

The capital of Italy and previous “caput mundi” awaits us with its vast history. There are a lot of reasons to visit Rome, an exciting city you will want to come back to. Gastronomy and lively atmosphere are one of those.

We start with the symbol of the city, the most visited landmark in Italy: the Colosseum, which, despite being half torn down, still oozes wonder. Yet, we don’t stop here, as we proceed to Venice Square with impressive Atlar of the Fatherland, the famous Trevi Fountain, we will follow the route until Panthenon, the Novona Square to finish with visiting Spanish Square.

Optional Pack: Guided tour around Rome + Entrance to Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums + Colosseum and Roman Forums

Day 4: Rome

Rome is without doubt a city that requires the longest time to visit it, keeping in mind the density of monuments it has….Soo take an advantage of mild winter of this antique capital of Europe, because our tour leaders will take you to visit all that you couldn’t visit the day before!

Do you prefer to go on your own and buy Christmas presents? In Unitrips we will give you all the freedom, so that no one ends up disappointed. But don’t return back to hotel late, because today we will have a Christmas Dinner with all your new friends from all around the world!

Saldremos pronto de Madrid, para llegar temprano a Barcelona y poder aprovechar la ciudad condal en toda su hermosura. Disfruta de sus rincones que la han convertido en capital turística mundial: desde La Sagrada Familia, al Passeig de Gracia, pasando por las míticas Ramblas y el barrio gótico con su impresionante catedral.

Dia 2: Después de un día entero disfrutando de las brisas del Mediterráneo, seguiremos nuestro circuito por Europa mediterráneo y llegaremos a Civitavecchia y de allí nuestro Eurobus nos llevará a la antigua Caput mundi.

Dia 3: Hoy, seguiremos nuestro circuito por Europa Mediterranea hacia la capital de Italia y antigua “Caput Mundi” (Cabeza del mundo) nos espera con sus miles de años de historia. Existen un montón de razones para visitar Roma, cautivarse de la ciudad y desear volver a ella, como la gastronomía y su animado ambiente.

Dia 4: Es momento de visitar al símbolo de la ciudad romana, el monumento más visitado de Italia: el Coliseo. A pesar de estar medio derruido, sigue manteniendo el encanto de su historia. Después de visitarlo tendréis tiempo de visitar los lugares que no tuvisteis tiempo de visitar el día anterior. i prefieres ir solo para comprar regalos de Navidad: en este circuito por Europa Mediterránea con Unitrips te dejamos toda la libertad que necesites, para que nadie se quede decepcionado. Pero no vuelvas tarde, porque tendrás la oportunidad de tener una cena de Navidad en toda regla, con todos tus nuevos amigos de todo el mundo.

Dia 5: ¡Hoy es Navidad! Y como no, no hay mejor manera de celebrarlo que despidiéndonos de la ciudad eterna e ir directos al Vaticano, especialmente hoy que es el día de la bendición Urbi et Orbi. Bendición que recibiremos de manos del Papa Francisco desde la iglesia más grande del mundo, San Pedro.

Dia 6: Hoy en este circuito por Europa Mediterránea nos despertamos en Florencia, donde disfrutaremos de la cuna del Renacimiento. Gracias a la familia de los Medici, a partir del siglo XIII, Florencia pasó a ser un referente mundial del arte. Por aquí pasearon y llenaron las calles con sus obras: escritores, poetas, pintores, escultores y genios. Como Rafaello, Miguel Angel, Leonardo, Donatello, Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio, Botticelli, Machiavelli, Galileo… ¡Sólo por citar alguno!

Dia 7: El invierno es la mejor temporada para visitar Venecia, la primera ciudad europea en convertirse en un museo al aire libre y en atraer tantos turistas que casi no caben. Por eso, no pierdas la ocasión de visitarla. Porque pronto, pondrán un limite a sus visitantes… ¡O puede que se quede sumergida! Saca tu cámara y busca el mejor ángulo para sacar las mejor fotos a sus puentesVaporettos y Góndolas.

Dia 8: Este es el día en que disfrutaremos de las montañas y de la nieve (si el tiempo nos acompaña). Esta zona en invierno se viste de blanco y deslumbra por su belleza. Recorreremos el río Adige, pasaremos por la cadena montañosa de Italia conocida con el nombre de los montes Dolomitas.

Dia 9: Hoy podrás decidir si quedarte en el hostel esperando que la resaca deje descansar tu cerebro, o aventurarte con nosotros a descubrir otro rincón escondido de Europa: el castillo de Walt Disney… Perdón, el castillo de Neuschweinstein, dicho también el castillo del Rey Loco.

Dia 10: Tras visitar el centro histórico de Múnich, el cual fue bombardeado a lo largo de la segunda guerra mundial, subiremos de nuevo al bus. Seguiremos con nuestro circuito por Europa Mediterráneo pero esta vez dirección a: ¡Praga!

Dia 11: Antes de disfrutar de una fiesta loca de Año Nuevo, visitaremos la Ciudad Vieja, la Ciudad Nueva también de origen medieval, y el antiguo Barrio Judío.

Se puede ir desde la Plaza de la República, con la Torre de la Pólvora, y la hermosa Casa Municipal de estilo modernista, hasta la Plaza de Wenceslao. Plaza universalmente conocida por ser escenario de la “Primavera de Praga”.

Dia 12: Después de una gran fiesta, hoy te ofrecemos la oportunidad de conocer otra joya de la República Checa durante este circuito por Europa Mediterránea: Kutna Hora. Ciudad Patrimonio de la humanidad, por su casco histórico y su peculiar iglesia de huesos, que se encuentra en el cementerio del pueblo.

Dia 13: Tras haber pasado esta semana de festejos juntos, en este circuito por Europa Mediterránea, ha llegado el momento de despedirnos, pero estamos seguros que volveremos a quedar muy pronto. ¿Verdad que la Nochevieja en Praga es la mejor fiesta que has pasado?
