About the Destination

Madrid, Toledo, and Barcelona

Spain is a country envied for its vibrant city life, slow-paced country life and architectural wonders that signify a rich artistic history. Begin in Madrid and get swept away by the excitement of Gran Via and the Plaza Mayor. You can visit the elegant Palacio Real, the official residence of the King of Spain, or the Museo del Prado, which features European art dating back to the 12th century!

Travel to south Toledo, where the historic mix of Christians, Arabs and Jews resulted in an explosion of art and culture etched into the synagogues, mosques, churches and palaces within its walls.

In Barcelona, discover Spanish food, music, fashion, architecture, and of course – fiesta. Tour La Sagrada Familia, stamped by Gaudi’s breathtakingly unique design, and then stroll the dark and windy streets of the Gothic Quarter where you will find no shortage of Spanish cafes. No matter what area of Spain you visit, you will not be disappointed.
