Detailed Description

The excitement and energy of Spain is infectious. It sweeps you away and takes you well into the night. You find yourself traveling back in time and strolling through medieval towns. It takes you into halls decorated with paintings by European Masters. Streets echo with the images of stampeding bulls and tiny restaurants overflow with succulent aromas. When you come to Spain you learn to celebrate life, through history, art, and food. The combination of flavors creates the unique and vibrant culture of Spain.

Arrive in Madrid and enjoy the regal ambiance of the capital city. The historic buildings, including the Royal Palace, enrapture the contemporary culture. Stroll through the Prado Museum and witness the artistic treasures of Spain and Europe. Venture into the Province of the Castles and arrive in Segovia. The town’s roots date back to the Roman Empire. Continue on to Vitoria and settle into the Basque capital. Bilbao is grand city once known for its port. The architectural wonder of the Guggenheim creates a unique shape and has brought the beauty of the city to light. Travel through the pearled city of San Sebastian en route to Pamplona. In Pamplona you can stroll through the quiet streets and find a sleepy city outside of the San Fermin festival.

The village of Saragossa is famous for its Plaza del Pilar and stunning Moorish palace. Arrive in Barcelona and experience Spain’s second largest city. The energy is unique to the urban landscape. The Mediterranean brushes against the coastal border. Spend time wandering through the outdoor museum of the city’s architectural artistry, from the “Block of Discord” to Sagrada Family Church. Valencia is a former royal capital with historic roots that lead to Roman times. The city streets are tremendous, filled with a wealth of historic and modern architecture pressing against one another. On the way to Granada you will visit troglodyte caves, home to exceptional paintings that date back millennia.

Tour the epic Moorish palace complex known as the Alhambra and enjoy the winding streets of the treasured city. Costa del Sol offers you a magnificent respite from the Andalusian sun. The coastal breeze rejuvenates you and the your day trip to Malaga combines the sounds of the ocean with the medieval cityscape that captures your imagination. Traverse the far reaches of the Rock of Gibraltar on the way to Seville. In Seville you will experience the rich traditions that connect the locals to the city’s heritage, both in the Jewish quarter and the bejeweled Alcazar. Spend the day in Cordoba and witness one of the great mosques of history before continuing to Madrid. Your private transfer will escort you to the airport for your flight home.
