Some of the world’s most sought-after destinations, it’s no surprise that some of the best moments on this tour are views of intricate architecture, stunning Mediterranean villages and lush gardens full of flowers in bloom. Follow Jimmy as he captures the majestic views of Barcelona, Southern France and the Italian Riviera.
Best optional excursion: Cape Ferrat
“The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was absolutely gorgeous. It was so cool to see how this avant-garde woman created such an immense, beautiful project, settling in the Cape Ferrat area where there was previously nothing. It was a really inspiring story—not to mention that the mansion, themed gardens and the views were incredible.”
Best architectural gem: The Sagrada Família
“What’s amazing about the Sagrada Família is how different it looks 20 years later, even though it’s still under construction. I had seen it many years ago, but I was still struck by the interior and how much progress they’ve made since I last visited. It really puts into perspective how a city can evolve over the years.”
Best place to explore: Cinque Terre
“The unique setting of the villages makes Cinque Terre a favorite of mine. The way the houses follow the geography of the hills makes it very dramatic and charming, while the isolation of the villages creates a feeling of serenity.”
