Andalusia & Mediterranean Coast Escorted Tour: Barcelona to Barcelona

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,632

Experience the cultural wonders of Andalusia on this journey across Spain. Starting and ending in Barcelona and staying in first-class accommodations, you’ll see Gaudi’s masterworks, tour the Alhambra, see the birthplace of flamenco, and follow in the footsteps of Cervantes.


This 9-day Spanish vacation takes you through Andalusia and along the Mediterranean Coast, starting and ending in Barcelona. It includes first-class accommodations, escorted coach tours, and is perfect for first-time visitors to Spain.

Your trip to Spain begins in Barcelona, the heart of Catalonia and Spain’s artistic capital. You’ll have two days in Barcelona to get lost in the labyrinthine streets of Barri Gotic and feel like you’re visiting an amusement park made for lovers of fine art when you witness the surreal wonders of Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia. Take advantage of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour to jet around the city and see its most popular sights. From Barcelona, head to Zaragoza, the capital city of Aragon, and see its famous Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar.

Continue on to Madrid, the Spanish capital and home to royal palaces and some of the world’s best bars and restaurants. Spend a night in the capital and see the Renaissance buildings along Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Villa, or squeeze in a visit to the 18th-century Royal Palace, the home of the royal family and one of Europe’s most opulent residences. From Madrid, drive through La Mancha, where Miguel de Cervantes set the famous tales of Don Quixote, and cross into Andalusia, where Spain’s Moorish history still looms large over a millennium later.

First stop is Cordoba, where you’ll see the famous mosque and explore the Jewish Quarter. You’ll then reach Seville, the Andalusian capital and the birthplace of flamenco. A morning tour showcases the Cathedral and Maria Luisa Park, before giving you the afternoon to explore at your own pace and perhaps take in a flamenco show in the evening. The next day, drive along the Caliphate Road to Granada, the former Moorish stronghold that’s home to the fable Alhambra. Enjoy a tour of the Alhambra before taking in a Gipsy Flamenco show later in the evening.

Continue along the Mediterranean Coastline into Valencia, the home of paella and the City of Arts and Sciences. Take a city tour to see the Old City along the banks of the Turia and pass by the massive planetarium and aquarium that captures the city’s scientific appeal. On the final leg of your journey, head back to Barcelona, where you’ll have one final night before connecting to the airport to return home.
