Your elaborate journey will begin with your arrival in Madrid, Spain, where you will enjoy two nights in the country’s capital city to embrace the distinctive splendor that is found in the contemporary architecture of the Gran Via and elaborate marvels that are displayed in the Royal Palace and Prado Museum.

Guided tours will offer highlights of the rich history that is found in the Gothic Quarter and unique heritage of Montjuïc, which will include impressive cathedrals and an elaborate water show.

You will continue into France where you will begin with one night in Avignon. Before reaching the city, your guide will lead you on a discovery tour of the remaining portion of a Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard. Once in Avignon, you will traverse the remarkable fourteenth-century allure of the preserved cobbled streets, strong defensive walls, and stellar papal palace. You will travel to the French Riviera for two nights by way of the quintessential Provencal countryside.
