Best optional excursion: Cape Ferrat

Cape Ferrat optional on Barcelona, Southern France & the Italian Riviera

“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

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain

“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

Cinque Terre, Italy

“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.”
