What You’ll Love...

Portugal – Discover Lisbon and Evora

Your journey begins in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, with an extensive city tour. Here you will tick off some of the city’s most incredible sights: the treasured 16th century Belem Tower - a UNESCO World Heritage site and symbol of the country’s Age of Discovery, the imposing Lisbon Cathedral and the winding cobblestone street of Alfama – the charming old Fisherman’s Quarter.

Discover enchanting Evora, one of Portugal’s most beautifully preserved medieval towns surrounded by 14th-century walls. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Evora is a striking collection of elaborate cathedrals and cloisters, narrow streets and picturesque squares where you can soak up the vibrant atmosphere of this city.

Spain – Embrace the Spanish lifestyle with visits to Seville, the Costa del Sol, Granada, Madrid and Barcelona

Reach the Spanish border to enter Andalusia, where your first stop is Seville, a charming city where flamenco clubs, Gothic cathedrals and fascinating buildings blend effortlessly. Your tour will take you to the spectacular Cathedral of Seville - the largest Gothic cathedral in the world where Christopher Columbus is buried. You’ll also explore the many plazas of the Santa Cruz Quarter, the majestic Plaza de España and the Giralda Bell Tower.

In the cliffside city of Ronda, tour the Plaza de Toros, Spain’s oldest bullring, where you can view the historic stables and a museum with fascinating displays of famous matadors. Afterwards, explore the lively luxury marina of Puerto Banus, before heading to the Costa del Sol.

Spend a full day in the sunny Costa del Sol, known for its hundreds of gorgeous beaches, quiet coves and glamorous restaurants and clubs. Embrace the Spanish way of life with a day at your leisure in this holiday destination, where you can sip vino by the sea, relax and unwind at the beach and soak up the atmosphere.

After bidding farewell to the southern coast, it’s on to Granada and a tour of the 13th century Alhambra Palace. This hilltop fortress - which takes its name from the Arabic word for ‘Red Castle’ - is a UNESCO World Heritage site set against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Admire views over the city from this hilltop site and wander through the pathways of this dazzling palace.

Hop on a high-speed train taking you from Granada to Madrid, Spain’s central capital, a city of chic boulevards and spectacular parks. A comprehensive city tour here will show you Madrid’s opera district, the Plaze de Colon, the Royal Palace and much more. Spend a day at leisure in Madrid, where you could embark on a visit of the world-renowned Prado Museum, home to famous works by artists such as El Greco and Ribera.

A high-speed train takes you smoothly from Madrid to Barcelona, the final stop on your tour. Here you will visit the Plaza de Catalunya, the city’s main square and the majestic La Sagrada Familia – Gaudi’s colossal masterpiece, still unfinished after 100 years. You will also enjoy a full day exploring Barcelona at leisure: enjoy independent sightseeing, eat in one of the city’s many high-quality restaurants, stroll along La Rambla, Barcelona’s most famous pedestrian walkway, and maybe raise a glass of sangria to the end of your holiday.
