Vacation Overview

This vacation covers the heart of Andalusia, a region known for its vibrant colors, passionate flamenco, good food, and friendly people. From Madrid, travel to the old walled city of Toledo with a visit to St Tome Church, made famous by El Greco’s paintings, then into the heart of Don Quixote’s La Mancha to Cordoba, where the Moors left an impressive mark with its fabulous Mezquita. Carry on to Seville, laid back and bustling at the same time, with its Roman and Moorish heritage, elegant squares, and many gardens. Next on the agenda is Ronda with its typical white-washed houses, then reach Marbella and the Costa del Sol, a popular Spanish vacation destination. The highlight of your tour awaits in the historical city of Granada as you visit the legendary Alhambra complex. Pass by olive and orange groves on your return to Madrid for a final overnight and the conclusion of your Spanish getaway.
