Highlights

Explore Moorish palaces, be treated to a lively flamenco performance in Seville, explore the astounding red-clay fortress of the Alhambra, Witness Gaudí’s Barcelona with your own eyes.

With some destinations, you always have to compromise on something, whether it's cuisine, history, or just things to do. Luckily, in southern Spain, there’s no such thing. This tour covers the major highlights of Andalucia (southern Spain): the ornate palace of Alhambra in Granada, Córdoba (an architectural mainstay of Islamic culture), and the Andalucian capital of Seville, home of flamenco dancing. Pair it all up with time in Madrid and Barcelona, and you’ll never run out of fun things to do, eat, or see.
