      Spanish Experience

      Your Itinerary

      1. Arrive Madrid (2 Nights)

      Welcome to Madrid, Spain's capital city. Check into your hotel then relax and unwind. Later meet with your Travel Director and fellow travellers. This evening spend free time exploring on your own or join the group for a walking tour of the city and the chance to savour local 'tapas' at a café on the Plaza Mayor. Or perhaps dine in a local restaurant offering the traditional flavours of Spain.

      2. Madrid Sightseeing and Free Time

      Your Local Specialist shows you the sights of Madrid including the Cibeles fountain, the Gran Via, the Paseo de la Castellana and the Puerta del Sol. At Plaza de España, admire the monument to Cervantes. Afterwards consider an Optional Experience to the medieval city of Segovia - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This evening you might be tempted by Madrid's nightlife, where the locals dine late and enjoy the open-air cafés and vibrant atmosphere until the early hours.

      3. Madrid – Toledo – Puerto Lápice – Seville (2 Nights)

      In the medieval city of Toledo - the ancient capital of Castile - your Local Specialist takes you on a walking tour through the quaint streets for views of the cathedral and synagogue. Toledo has been a traditional sword making and steel working centre since about 500 BC and was the standard source of weaponry for the Roman legions. Visit a steel workshop to see some fine examples of this age-old craft. Your journey continues south to Puerto Lápice where, reputedly, Don Quixote was dubbed 'a knight' by a local innkeeper. The plains of La Mancha give way to the hills of Andalucia with striking whitewashed villages and churches. Arrive in Seville, a vibrant city and the home of bullfighting and flamenco.
