10 or 12 days
Spain

Compare life in Spain's great capital city to the distinct culture of the Moorish-influenced Andalusia region.

Madrid welcomes you with a warm and lively spirit - and a distinctly European feel. The Prado and Palacio Real are as proudly Spanish as they are internationally renowned, while Granada, Seville and Córdoba showcase their multicultural roots at the Alhambra, Seville Cathedral and Mezquita.
