    Day 4

    Córdoba, Spain

    Prepare to step back in time to the days of Islamic Iberia – a locally guided tour of Córdoba’s Old Town awaits! After visiting the spectacular Mezquita (a UNESCO-protected mosque), you’ll be free to explore the city at your own pace.

    Day 5

    Córdoba - Úbeda - Granada, Spain

    Your next stop will be Úbeda, a World Heritage-listed town filled with spectacular Renaissance palaces. There will be just enough time to pause and taste some authentic Spanish olive oil before we move on to enchanting Granada.

    Day 6

    Granada, Spain

    An energetic university city with an ancient past – Granada is truly magnificent. No visit would be complete without stepping foot in the ancient walled Alhambra fortress. One of the world’s best examples of Islamic architecture, you’ll enjoy a guided tour around a few sections of this intricately decorated complex. Then, the rest of the day is yours to explore Granada at your leisure.

    Day 7

    Granada - Ronda, Spain

    You can rest assured that today’s journey will be just as much fun as the destination!

Tonight, a traditional flamenco show will help you settle into Seville.

    Day 9

    Seville, Spain

    Today you’ll have a full day to spend getting acquainted with the charismatic city of Seville. First, a locally guided walking tour and a visit to the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alcázar of Seville. Then, the day is yours to spend at your leisure. Whether you want to seek out Roman ruins, hunt down Moorish mosaics or visit classical squares, there are plenty of historic sites to keep you occupied here. Feeling hungry? You could always sample some Andalucían specialties at one of the city’s abundant bars.

    Back to nature today. After breakfast you’ll make tracks to the Sierra de Aracena, an unspoilt mountain range peppered with castles, quaint villages and pastures.

    Day 11

    Sierra De Aracena, Spain - Monsaraz - Estemoz, Portugal

    Your first stop of the day will be Monsaraz, a charming Portuguese hilltop village with sweeping views of the Alqueva Dam.
