Eat all the gelato you can while exploring Renaissance Siena and Florence, glorious Cinque Terre and luxurious Milan, and then work it all off in the extreme sport haven of Lauterbrunnen. Spain is where your days will be a haze of flamenco, sangria and sunshine. Go shopping in Barcelona, hit the beach in Valencia and then immerse yourself in artwork at Madrid's famous Prado Museum. Tear yourself away from the beach of San Seb to go surfing in Biarritz before the iconic landmarks of Paris.
