Join The Travel Club for an exploration of Spain's most popular cities. Start in Madrid and spend two days touring the heart of España, complete with a guided tour of the Royal Palace and a side-trip to Spain's medieval capital, Toledo. Next, we'll visit the Moorish city of Cordoba, and tour the Mezquita, a glorious 8th-century mosque. From there, we'll move on to Sevilla, visit Christopher Columbus's tomb and end our evening with an authentic flamenco dance show. Next, it's onto Granada to tour the famous Alhambra—an immense hilltop palace—and the Generalife, an ornate series of flowering gardens, before traveling through the picturesque Spanish countryside to Valencia. We'll visit the town's bustling markets and observe a master paella chef making your lunch. This vacation ends in vibrant Barcelona, where we may explore the city on our own.
