Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Madrid and check into your hotel.
Toledo & Cordoba
Hit the road for Toledo and enjoy a welcome dinner. The next day, continue across La Mancha, stopping in Valdepenas for wine and tapas at a local bodega. Spend the next two days exploring Cordoba at your own pace; peruse the old town, try out the local cafés, relax with a treatment or two in a local hamman and explore the city’s striking architecture. Don’t miss a visit to the Mezquita, a World Heritage-listed mosque in the heart of the city.
On the way to Granada, stop off at the towns of Ubeda and Baeza to taste Spanish olive oil. Continue to the magnificent Jaen Cathedral, set in the lush countryside, before arriving in Granada. Here, you’ll take in the Alhambra, a breath-taking Moorish palace perched on a hilltop outside the city, before having a free afternoon to stroll through vibrant gardens, discover the beautiful cathedral and taste delicious food under your own steam.
Journey through rural countryside to the historic town of Ronda, set around a dramatic gorge and spanned by a rather impressive bridge. Here you’ll admire the spectacular clifftop views, and have time to explore the town itself, where you can visit the 14th century Arabic bathhouses and the Bullring (Plaza de Toros), where there is a museum depicting the history of Ronda’s bullfighting dynasties. Spend the night in Ronda.
Continue to Seville, stopping at Jerez for wine tasting at a local winery, followed by a tapas lunch. In Seville, you’ll be treated to a traditional flamenco show before having a full day to explore this beautiful city under your own steam. You could search out Roman ruins, Moorish mosaics and classical squares. Or take yourself on a tapas tour, hopping from bar to bar, sampling Andalucían specialities in each.
Head to Ibericos and the Picos de Aroche National Park, where black Iberian pigs roam. At a farm in the Sierra de Aracena, you’ll sample the famous Jamon Iberico and visit the Castle Vila Vicosa. Spend the night in Estremoz before travelling to Lisbon the next day. The capital of Portugal, Lisbon is the ideal spot to get acquainted with Portuguese culture – admire the white and orange buildings, ride the funiculars, take in the architecture and treat yourself to a glass of sangria or two.
