Overview

Spain, Andalucia

SEP. 12-20, 2019
Málaga, Antequera, Granada, Sevilla, Ronda, Córdoba

Experience romantic southern Spain on a seven-night journey through the heart of Andalucía. Stay in a modern parador in the charming town of Antequera, and discover the history and culture of Al-Andalus, as this region of Spain was known during eight centuries of Moorish control, on daily excursions. Admire the beautiful legacy of the Moors: the courtyards and fountains of the Alhambra in Granada; the iconic red-and-white arches of La Mezquita in Córdoba; and the imposing Alcázar in Sevilla. Surround yourself with many special moments: a stroll down the bougainvilla-lined streets of Sevilla’s historic quarter; the breathtaking view over El Tajo Gorge in Ronda; lunch at the unforgettable Parador de Granada; and an entrancing flamenco performance. Visit an organic winery for a tasting and lunch, and spend a day exploring Málaga. Enjoy first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan featuring wine with dinner on this small-group program. No single supplement, limited availability.
