Montserrat Monastery Visit and Lunch at Farmhouse
The experience starts in the upper part of Passeig de Gràcia, before journeying to experience the natural splendor of Montserrat, Catalonia’s most emblematic mountain, topped by a Benedictine Monastery. Montserrat is an ideal trip to spend a fun day in nature, just a few kilometers away from Barcelona. Board the Aeri Cable Car to observe the area’s fascinating flora and fauna. On the way to the Monastery, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range packed with unique needle-shaped formations. Upon arrival, visit the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day, with over 70 monks. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta, who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will bring history alive by explaining the history and ventures of this Monastery dating nearly a thousand years. A bus will take you to Farmhouse where you will have lunch from farm to table based on a delicious 3-course menu; first-course salad, second-course combination of barbecue (vegetarian and halal option) and dessert with stunning views. In August the restaurant will not be the usual, but you will be able to appreciate the views of Montserrat. Once this massif is observed from a distance, it is easier to understand the importance of this mountain when it comes to influencing the traditions and culture of the regions that surround it. The plans and terraces of the Farmhouse have been cultivated for hundreds of years. At present there are 2,700 trees of the varieties of the area, which are the Palomar and the Vera. After this full day of adventures you will return to the centre of Barcelona by private transport.

Poros - Hydra - Aegina: One Day Cruise
Discover Greek culture and lifestyle with a cruise to Poros, Hydra and Aegina - on the same day. Start the adventure in the port of Athens (if you have selected the option with transfers, you will take a transfer from the hotel to the port), from where we will sail to the island of Poros, one of the most beautiful islands in Greece, head ashore to the island of peace, romance and fun and explore the colourful island at your own leisure for an hour. Return to the boat and glide over to Hydra, the second stop of the day. As you approach the island, admire the very special architecture and dramatic landscapes of this island, whose old traditional stone houses and mansions silently stand witness to a long and turbulent history. Listen as your guide provides handy tips on what to see and do on the island. Make the most of the unique charms of Hydra island, whose amphitheater once served as a safe shelter for Saronic Pirates. Enjoy 90 minutes of free time to stroll down the narrow lanes, relax over a refreshing cup of coffee, or browse the shops. Round your experience off with a visit to the quaint and beautiful island of Aegina, where you can again explore at your own leisure with two hours of free time! If you fancy, perhaps, opt for an excursion on your own (not included) to the temple of Afaya, the best-preserved ancient site on the island. Once back on the boat, sit back, relax and be entertained with a traditional Greek dance and dance show.
