Trip Summary
3 nights in Seville

Seville is the largest town in the famous Southern province of Andalusia, best known for the impressive Cathedral with its Giralda tower, as well as the Alcazar, which also serves as a visiting residence for the Spanish Royal family. Seville seems to move at half the pace of a normal major city, creating a relaxing and even small-town atmosphere that complements the sevillano way of savoring every moment of life, bite of food and sip of drink. Don`t forget your dancing shoes, because from the moment the sun goes down right up until it comes up again, the bars and clubs of Seville's nightlife are brimming with festive people, great music, lively conversation and unrivaled excitement.

Recommended Stay: 3 nights

Must See`s:
Cathedral & Giralda, Royal Alcazar, Gold Tower, Barrio Santa Cruz, Archivo de las Indias, Maria Luisa Park, Triana, Fine Arts Museum, Flamenco and so much more.



1 nights in Merida

Merida is the bustling capital of the State of Yucatan and its largest city. It is a city rich in Mayan folklore and colonial history; a city of contrasting sights, and cultural blends. Among the remaining Roman monuments that are worth visiting are: the Puente Romano, a bridge over the Guadiana river that is still used by pedestrians; an important fortification to defend the bridge; the Temple of Diana; the remains of the Forum, including the Arch of Trajan; and several other archaeological sights.


1 nights in Trujillo

Many nations left their fingerprints in this small town in Extremadura, since the Romans era. Trujillo is now known as the "Cradle of the Conquistadors" and hosts a statue of Francisco Pizzaro, conqueror of Peru. Many old monuments may be admired here, including the castle guarding the town from the hill of Zorro, two churches and the Chaves "El viejo" palace. If you're looking for fun and modern life, you shouldn't miss the events at the bullring and the Chiviri festival in the Plaza Mayor.


1 nights in Ciudad Rodrigo (Salamanca)

none


1 nights in Zamora

The capital of the Zamora province, this city is best known as the "museum of Romanesque art". The main Romanesque monuments are the Cathedral, Parador de Zamora (palace) - with splendid patio and staircase - and numerous churches from 12th and 13th centuries. You can enjoy a nice view of the city from the medieval Castle of Zamora and visit the Museo de Semana Santa de Zamora, exposing the "pasos" used in local processions. The whole province is charming, waiting to be discovered by tourists.


1 nights in Burgos

Burgos is a significant Northern Spanish touristic destination, hosting an impressive collection of ecclesiastical monuments. Most of them reflect the Gothic style, starting with the Cathedral - similar to the French cathedral of Bourges - and the monasteries of Las Huelgas and Miraflores. Also interesting to see are the El Rey hospital, once destinated to the pilgrims traveling to Santiago, and the vestiges of the old fortress walls, with the famous arches of Santa Maria and Fernán González.


1 nights in Madrid

In the last few years, Madrid has gained the reputation of being one of Europe's most active and attractive cities for its nightlife and cultural activities. Capital of Spain since 1562, Madrid's museums host, among others, Dalís, Mirós and Picasso's Guernica. Madrid is a city of great contrasts: the Old City, the Madrid of the Hapsburgs, the Royal Palace, the Puerta de Alcala, the Retiro Park. At night, the city changes gears with its famous Madrid nightlife. The city's endless energy is hard to resist, and its sociable style invites you to jump right in.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, Prado Museum, Puerta del Sol, Puerta de Alcala, Plaza de Cibeles, Gran Via, Madrid Cathedral, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofia Museums and so much more!

Spain

Spain is a country of passion, excitement and enthusiasm unlike any other in Western Europe. Madrid, the magnificent capital, Barcelona, Valencia and Seville are effervescent cosmopolitan cities with some of the best museums and galleries in Europe. Costa-style resorts take much of the coast up although cities such as Alicante, Marbella, Malaga and Mallorca's Palma retain their charm. And everywhere you can find secret hideaways with empty beaches. The best way to explore rural Spain is to visit Galicia and Asturias, the arid villages of Andalucia and the peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the Pyrenees.
