Your trip begins in Madrid. The capital of Spain is a city that stands out for the architecture of its royal palaces, plazas and stately buildings, its beautiful parks, and some of the most important art museums in the world. Home to the most recognized and successful football club, Madrid also has the most bars and restaurants per square meter than any major city in Europe.
Depending on your arrival time in Madrid, your expert tour planner will recommend for you the best options for enjoying your first day in Madrid.
On your second day in Madrid, you will get the chance to enjoy all the city has to offer. There is much to see in this magnificent city but a lot can be done in one day.
If you are interested in art, visiting the Prado, Reina Sofia or Thyssen museums are a must. You will also find that Madrid has many smaller museums that are very interesting to visit as well, such as the Casa Museo Sorolla or the Museo Lázaro Galdiano.
If the world of sports is your thing, you will undoubtedly want to visit the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, home to Real Madrid and a true sanctuary for fans of football.
Madrid may not be famous for its parks, however, it is the European capital with the most trees… And there are many more surprises that await you in Madrid: gastronomy, shopping, nightlife and entertainment for children. Your expert tour planner will help you plan your free time in Madrid in the best way possible based on your interests.
Your trip to Seville from Madrid lasts approximately 2 and a half hours in a very comfortable AVE high-speed train. During the journey, you will be able to see how the landscape evolves and changes on your way to southern Spain.
Arrival in Seville will be at approximately 11:00am and the rest of the day is free for you to explore this magical Andalusian city. Seville is arguably the quintessence of Spain and a city well known for bringing together the largest portion of Spanish culture and tradition in one place. Passion for flamenco and bulls, a blend of Arab and Christian cultures, tapas bars, plazas, and white cobbled streets are just a few examples.
You will have the day to visit some of the city´s most emblematic monuments, like the Giralda or the cathedral. Take a ride on a typical horse-drawn carriage that will take you around the Plaza de España and the María Luisa Park. Explore the streets of the Santa Cruz neighborhood and even take a short cruise on the Guadalquivir River.
Your trip includes an evening tapas tour with a local guide. As an option for this day, you can choose to have an expert local guide to show you around the city or include a horse-drawn carriage ride (Calesa tour). You can also choose to substitute the tapas tour for dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant (Pack Michelin).
In the morning, you will have some free time to continue discovering Seville. On your personalized itinerary, you will receive the best recommendations to enjoy Seville and do some shopping.
The trip to Cordoba is also by high-speed AVE train and takes approximately 1 hour. Cordoba is famous in Spain for its courtyards or patios. The white walls of the houses contrast with the flowers that decorate them and the pride of their owners has led the city to hold annual competitions for the best decoration.
Without a doubt, Cordoba is most famous for its Mezquita, a unique symbol of history and the blend of cultures. For a long time, Cordoba was one of the most important cities for its advanced cultural development: libraries, universities, artisans… all came together in Cordoba. Although a lot of time has passed, a stroll through the streets of Cordoba will make you understand all the splendor of its past.
Your tour includes dinner at one of the most emblematic restaurants of Cordoba, where you will get to enjoy the local cuisine.
As an option for this day (or day 5), you can include a local expert guide to show you around the city.
