Detailed Description

Flamenco was born in the villages and taverns of Andalusia, its passionate rhythm coming to be symbolic of the region. Spanish guitars flutter across tables of tapas and enthusiastic chatter. Dancers elegantly swirl in vibrant dresses, responding to improvised songs of romance as the music spills onto streets of tradition and intrigue. There's a distinct beat here, one with indelibly Spanish flavors yet idiosyncratic tones. Andalusia is the Spain of travel reverie, full of fiestas, passion, and old-world charm. It's also a country within a country, home to a distinct culture that's personified by the live flamenco that inhabits village streets and city squares. Flamenco is an improvised art form developed over three centuries in Andalusia. Spanish guitar and soulful singing fills venues with harmonic rhythms, while virtuoso dancers add mysterious visuals on stage.

This handcrafted and hands-on tour explores the art of flamenco, incorporating music classes, performances from renowned masters, and nightly tables at the region's most historic music venues. By delving into the heart of the art form you discover the soul of Andalusia. Explore ancient walled cities with an exotic edge. Taste fine wine in mountain villages unspoiled for centuries. Visit off-the-beaten-track suburbs where Andalusian culture is displayed in uninhibited glory. Immerse yourself in mysterious architecture, absorbing everything from Moorish relics to Renaissance palaces, and fortressed towns to glittering cathedrals. Heritage and culture is all around as flamenco provides a paradigm to experience the real Andalusia.

It all starts in Seville, flamenco's traditional home and an ongoing hub of live performances and atmospheric streets. Explore the city's UNESCO sites, enjoy the best tables at the city's finest venues, and learn how to dance flamenco with a day of lessons. Nights four and five are spent in ancient Cordoba, an exotic walled city with an eclectic style. While Seville brings the fiesta and the passion, Cordoba exudes soulful tones and the mysterious rhythm of centuries past. During these first five days you take day trips into small surrounding villages, discovering the history of flamenco and listening to masters strum Spanish guitar.

Throughout this itinerary, all transfers are in a luxury sedan with a qualified driver guide passionate about flamenco. Days six to ten take you across Andalusia, the region's finest attractions blurring together like an uninterrupted cante chico. Go wine tasting at historic farms, learn guitar in a famous guitar shop, discover Spain's earliest Renaissance architecture, and wander the mesmerizing alleys of fortressed towns. And this is just a sample of days six and seven. Head to the coast and its all fast strumming and enthusiastic songs, yet hear graceful tones in cute mountain villages. The tour finishes back in Seville, where there's an opportunity to be serenaded on stage or to join the artists in performing.

Like all Zicasso itineraries, every aspect of this tour is fully customizable. One potential add on is to enjoy a few days or even a week of flamenco dancing or music classes, something that's possible in both Seville and small coastal villages.
