Our travel agent put together a marvelous trip for us! We were delighted to be invited to a wedding in Andalucia, so we had that part of the trip scheduled when we had our first conversation with this travel company. They, then, planned the rest of our two-week vacation, which included Cordoba, Granada, and Barcelona, plus the final three days in Venice, Italy, replacing a trip we had to cancel two years ago.
We had never been to any of the cities we visited, so we were especially happy to have escorts meet us at airports, train stations, and hotels, as well as guides for various sites in each of the cities we visited. All of our guides were excellent -- knowledgeable, helpful, engaging, and great company. Our travel company selected the hotels, based on our requests, and made the arrangements for transportation throughout Spain and in Venice. We were grateful for their flexibility as the trip developed, their careful planning, and their availability for questions while we were in Spain. They made our travel very easy and so enjoyable.
There wasn't anything we didn't enjoy on this trip! Of course, the Mosque in Cordoba, the Alhambra in Granada, and the Gaudi architecture in Barcelona were all stunning. We visited all of these sites with our travel company guides and felt that we received excellent information and gained appreciation for all. In Granada, our travel company also made dinner reservations for us at a restaurant overlooking the Alhambra. From the restaurant, we were able to see the last of the sun setting and watch the moon rising over the Alhambra -- it really was magical! In Venice, we were thrilled to see the palace and the basilica, and were equally charmed by getting ourselves lost (as one is supposed to do in Venice!) on the many, many bridges and little streets.
We also had plenty of time to stroll, eat delicious food, and see other sights, like the archeological museum in Cordoba and the Biennale Architettura in Venice. We met lovely people in our hotels, in restaurants, and as we were touring. All of this combined for a truly memorable two weeks!
Nothing comes to mind. It was a lovely, lovely two weeks, preceded by cooperative planning.
