Detailed Description

Your 10-day Spain and Italy tour embraces the passion, sophistication, and celebration of life for which both countries are known. Whether indulging in Spain’s Buena Onda or settling into the sweet life of Italy’s La Dolce Vita, you will find inspiration and elation in cities and towns that are unlike any other in the world. You can enrich your life by wandering the unspoiled medieval streets of Toledo or by exploring the maintained antique walls of Lucca. You can touch your palm to the Leaning Tower of Pisa and wander the winding cobblestone alleyways of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. Spain and Italy practically overflow with cultural riches and fascinating heritage.

Spain is a country that is full of dramatic fortifications, captivating artwork, and a consistent setting for a passionate lifestyle. Art imitates life amid the fascinating cathedrals and elegant palaces. The capital city of Madrid enraptures visitors with its sophisticated highlights, such as the Royal Palace and the Prado Museum. The town of Toledo retains its medieval charms, which are accentuated by the mixture of Jewish, Muslim, and Christian heritage. Barcelona is a city of imagination and seaside charms.

Italy has an ineffable style and endless allure, both of which derive from fascinating cultures, regions, towns, and neighborhoods. The riches of Italy represent the cultural cache of architecture and art that was crafted by famous Renaissance masters and ancient emperors. Rome effortlessly blends modern life with historic structures and beguiling artifacts. The Colosseum, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps capture the imagination, and the pristine design of St. Peter’s Basilica adds to the splendors of Rome inside Vatican City. Florence retains its title as the Cradle of the Renaissance with works from Botticelli, Donatello, and Michelangelo. Pisa adds a sense of drama to its former glory with the Leaning Tower, and Lucca offers a peaceful respite in the Tuscan hills away from the decorative sumptuousness of Florence.
