TOUR OF SPAIN























Join us in the Spanish capital of Madrid as we kick-off our tour of Spain!  The bustling metropolis of more than 3M people is where we find the Puerta del Sol, marking kilometer 0 for every radial road in Spain.  Visits include the Parliament buildings, Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace, Prado Museum and a tapas tour too!  Next, it is on to Toledo, the ancient capital set on a hill above the plains of Castilla-La Mancha and its medieval old city comprising Jewish, Arab and Christian history.  A transfer south takes us to Seville, land of Flamenco where we’ll enjoy a performance at Tablao El Arenal, the Mecca of this art form!  A trip to the Alhambra and the Generalife is not to be missed as we stop next in Granada.  A short flight to Valencia takes us to the home of Paella where we’ll try our hand at making this celebrated dish.  An architectural tour of the Calatrava-designed City of Arts & Sciences would be breathtaking on its own, but a visit inside any of its component parts will amaze as well!  A day at the beach in Benidorm is next with a requisite stop for Turron de Jijona in Alicante before heading to our final destination: Barcelona!  The city of Gaudi and Catalan culture entertains with Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, La Rambla, Tibidabo, Monjuic, the Bari Gotic and so much more.  From there, a day trip to Girona will touch on the ancient Roman history of Spain.
