Do you wonder why Barcelona is on the world’s top travel destinations? Its architecture comprehends historical periods from the Roman to high-tech buildings, not to mention a gorgeous and vibrant Gothic Quartier. It is, of course, the home to Antoni Gaudí, our best-known architect, and we will visit many of the wonders he created, such as Sagrada Família or his famous houses. Moreover, in Barcelona, the Spanish cuisine meets the Catalan gastronomy. All these things, added with some doses of AEGEE spirit, will make your five senses go crazy: you don’t want to miss the endless nights on the seaside, some paella with sangria, and crema catalana!


It is said that its secret rests in the vibe of the town itself. Garraf mountains and the airstreams from the sea are the responsible for keeping the sky clean of clouds for about 300 days in a year. Others mention the long and funny nights, awesome beaches, good communication with Barcelona, the calm you can breath there and, of course, the nice people. What is for sure is that Sitges has a different life style, a mediterranean one, attractive for both youth and adults!


Thessaloniki itself never doubted its own Cultural identity and its millennia of existence, it stands there since 315BC named after Alexander’s the Great sister. Historically one of Europe’s oldest and most multiethnic cities, widely considered as the cultural capital of Greece, is truly unique in the sense that it intricately marries its thousands-year-old multicultural heritage and the architectural marvels with the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Sephardic Jew history. The cutting-edge art performances and cinematic avant-garde, Arts and Entertainment hubs all-in-one, numerous monuments, fifteen listed at the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the 5km meandering waterfront, make Thessaloniki a “must-see destination”.


Skiáthos, the most cosmopolitan island in the Northern Sporades, is truly a paradise on earth, with lush pine forests and crystal-clear azure waters. The island is picturesque, unspoilt and blessed with more than 60 beautifully clean beaches. Natural beauty with stunning views of neighbouring islands, secluded beaches even in high season, a cosmopolitan nightlife, and superb Greek and international cuisine.
