Trip Summary
2 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!


2 nights in Segovia

This 2000-year-old city is a very popular touristic destination, hosting many ancient heritages; the old city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, being surrounded by the Roman walls, rebuilt in the 15th century. The symbol of Segovia is the Roman aqueduct built during 1st and 2nd centuries by the Romans to bring water to the town. The castle Alcazar is located at the tip of a narrow promontory and has a history of about 10 centuries. The central plaza is dominated by the grand Gothic cathedral.


2 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.


2 nights in Bilbao

Known as an industrial town, Bilbao is the largest port in Spain, as well as a major rail hub, serving as a departure point for most of Basque's country attractions. To international tourists, Bilbao is a place with great food and also home to the controversial $100 million Guggenheim Museum, which was designed by the famed American architect Frank Gehry. You should not allocate more than 2 days for visiting this city, as most of the sights can be viewed in less than 48 hours.


2 nights in San Sebastian

San Sebastián is the de facto summer capital of Spain, where numerous Spaniards find a much needed escape from the sweltering heat. Its location on the Bay of Biscay is unique, as San Sebastian is surrounded by green mountains. A beach resort in its own right, San Sebastián did not succumb to consumerism and bad taste. La Parte Vieja, with narrow streets, hidden plazas, and medieval houses, adds plenty of charm to its elegant shops, wide boulevards, sidewalk cafes, and restaurants.


2 nights in Pamplona

Ernest Hemingway put Pamplona on the map by describing the famed running of the bulls. One can see the encierros (bull running) during Fiesta de San Fermín, usually between July 6 and July 14. The non-stop party atmosphere is spiced up by fireworks, Basque flute concerts, and wine. To get a hold of a bed, one must reserve a hotel one year in advance or stay in a neighboring town. Once a fortified city and the capital of the ancient kingdom of Navarre, Pamplona is more than one-event town.


2 nights in Zaragoza

Zaragoza is the provincial capital of Aragon, once a kingdom it its own right. A prosperous city, Zaragoza was founded 2,000 years ago and like may other cities in Spain bears the marks of Roman, Goth, and Arabic civilizations. The city has not one, but two cathedrals, and it used to be a major pilgrimage center, as the legend states that St James, the protector saint of Spain, had a vision of Virgin Mary here. It is one of the greatest centers of the Marian cult in Spain. A monumental city of wide avenues and arcades, Zaragoza is also a lively student center.


2 nights in Barcelona

Barcelona, the old Roman Barcino, is Spain`s second city, always on the biting edge of fashion, architecture, food, style, music and good times. Walk its narrow streets and wonderful plazas, or along the Ramblas, stretching from Plaza de Cataluña to the Harbor, encompassing the magic of the city: stalls full of books, birds and flowers. The city`s most powerful monuments open a window onto its history: the intricately carved edifices that comprise the medieval Gothic Quarter; the curvilinear modernism (Catalan Art Nouveau) that inspired Gaudí's Sagrada Familia; and the seminal surrealist works of Picasso and Miró, found in museums that peg Barcelona as a crucial incubator for 20th-century art. The recent restoration of the port area began with the development of a harbor for the Olympic Games of 1992. New modern squares, designed by leading artists such as Miró and Barceló have created a new style alongside Gaudi's modernist buildings. Now the city is ready to show every visitor how it has been transformed into one of the most moderns and active cities in Europe.



Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Sagrada Familia, Picasso Museum, La Rambla, Barri Gotic, Park Guell, modernist buildings, Montjuic Hill, Barceloneta and so much more!
.


2 nights in Valencia

Thanks to its location, Valencia is the Spanish getaway to the Mediterranean, where history meets modernism. A bustling commercial center, Valencia is all about culture, commerce, cinema, theatre, and museums. The proximity of the coastal mountain range adds a unique appeal to this sea town. Fine beaches are to be found within the city limits or in its immediate vicinity. A visit to the City of the Arts and Sciences - an astonishing urban complex designed to make learning fun.


2 nights in Granada

Granada is a jewel standing at the foot of Spain's highest mountains, the Sierra Nevada. Like many others, this city bears the marks of Roman, Moorish, and Jewish influences. The universally famed Alhambra, a complex of palaces and gardens built under the Nazari Dynasty, overlooks the city. Notably, Isabel and Ferdinand lie buried inside the city's Cathedral. The famed "mudéjar" style of architecture can be spotted in the Monastery of La Cartuja and many other churches built by Moorish craftsmen.

Recommended Stay: 2 nights

Must See`s:
The Alhambra, Generalize, Albaycin, Sacromonte, Cahtedral, and Royal Chapel


1 nights in Toledo

Once the capital of the Spanish Empire, Toledo is nowadays a UNESCO World Heritage Designated Site, due to its essential historical and cultural statute. It hosted various cultures and religions, including Christians, Jewish and Muslims. That's why you cand find here a large variety of ecclesiastical monuments, among which the Cathedral definitely deserves a visit for its famous "El Transparente" altar and also the Church of Santo Tomé, host of the famous painting "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz" of El Greco, born in Toledo.


2 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.

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.
