ALL IN A FEW DAYS WORK - AND PLAY! S.S. BON VOYAGE -> EURO ROAD TRIP -> EGYPT
Interested in exploring Europe's old world charm on a boutique cruise?
After disembarking the S.S. Bon Voyage in Bordeaux, the Hiltons adventure with an epic epicurean focus with four nights in four cities experiencing unique Virtuoso properties.
Their first stop was San Sebastián. The authentic Pintxos foodie tour is now on the Hiltons' top three global culinary experiences.
Abadia Retuerta LeDomaine in Sardón de Duero, Spain was next up. Many would say the charm of this property is that it’s a restored 12th-century abbey sitting on 500 acres of vineyards along the Douro River. Malaka claims it’s the selection of “Spa Sommelier” treatments where a wine tasting is part of the treatment. Their culinary journey through Spain - complete with plenty of tapas and wine - ended in Madrid with a fantastic new hotel, the Gran Meliá Palacio de los Duques, boasting architectural splendor and timeless luxury with an avant-garde flair. As much as they hated to say adios to Spain, the Hiltons had two more countries to reach in just as many days!
Next up, the Hiltons' daughter joined them in Rome and they checked into Hassler Roma, overlooking the famous Spanish Steps and near the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Spagna and the Vatican. At this point, the focus of the trip transitioned from culinary to shopping!
The Hiltons' road trip concluded in the "fatherland" (Egypt) where they attended Malaka's cousin's wedding - with the Great Pyramids of Giza as the backdrop for the celebration!
(While in Cairo, Ryan snapped this photo of the Hiltons' daughter Alex. Alex will be attending Florida State University in the fall enrolled as a student-athlete where she will study business management while also playing on FSU’s beach volleyball team. We think she could add modeling to her resume! Obviously born with the travel bug, Alex looks forward to pursuing a career in travel.)
If you've also been bitten by the travel bug, we hope the Hiltons' recent trip gives you a few ideas on where to explore next! Remember that in addition to all-inclusive cruises and luxury safari journeys, the ATI team is always ready to send you off the beaten path with customized adventures.
