After checking into your hotel, you will have a half-day tour of the beautiful monuments of the city, including the Plaza del Sol and the Basilica de San Francisco. Visit the Royal Palace the next day to experience the opulence of Spanish kings, and then continue to Toledo for a half-day tour spent strolling along the medieval lanes as shaped by Moorish, Jewish, and Christian culture. The next day, you will take a scenic drive into Andalusia, stopping in the gorgeous city of Cordoba en route to Seville. Visit the famous Mezquita and explore the enchanting lanes that are lined with whitewashed walls before settling into Seville for the evening.

The following day, your guide will lead you on a fabulous tour of the city that will encompass the Cathedral and the beautiful Alcazar. In the evening, look forward to a fabulous flamenco show for a captivating introduction to the historical dance.
