Detailed Description

Spain and Italy are countries of innumerable treasures and untold histories. Take the architecture as an example, from Greek temples you see in Puglia to Moorish white villages in Andalusia. Then, explore the history of tapas and pizza in the places they originate. These countries are the products of their past yet their history is extremely localized. Seville is completely different from Madrid. Matera is nothing like other places in Italy. Every day will be unique, which is the highlight of this handcrafted tour to Spain and Italy. You’ll visit famous places and gaze upon renowned sights, but most of all you’ll discover what makes each place unique.

The Spanish half of the tour will take you to seven major destinations, from Barcelona to Madrid via Andalusia. The Italian half is more off the beaten track, as you will stick to towns and villages in the country’s south. For every popular destination like Barcelona there is a forgotten gem like Ronda. While Palermo and the Amalfi Coast are well celebrated, other Italian destinations remain highly authentic. As this perfect tour continues, you will get an understanding of why these countries are so revered while you enjoy offbeat experiences that have escaped the tourist trail. While the pace of the tour is quick, the destinations will be relaxing with their wonderfully laid-back rhythm.

You will start and end in the Mediterranean. Begin in Barcelona to ease you into the vacation with Modernist architecture and Catalan culture. Fly to Granada and discover the old Moorish city. Spend the night in the pueblos blanco (white village) of Ronda, then taste sherry in Jerez before you visit Seville. There are real tapas and flamenco here, along with a grand old quarter on a remarkable scale. Make a stop in Cordoba to see the Mezquita, before you spend time in the Spanish capital. Like everywhere else on the tour, Madrid has an atmosphere that can be laid-back or lively depending on your mood.

Then, fly to Sicily for an Italian tour that’s based on small destinations and local experiences. You will relax along the water, taste the tradition, and travel through all the history of Sicily, Palermo, Agrigento, Taormina, and Piazza Armerina. End your vacation on the Italian mainland with a visit to Matera, which will give you time to discover Basilicata and Puglia. Go in search of Greek temples, proper pizza, and those secrets that inner Italy can reveal. Finish your journey where you started, on the Mediterranean. This time you’ll be facing west as you relax in a village on the Amalfi Coast.
