Barcelona, Porto, Lisbon, Seville, Granada, Madrid

Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue

Spend a little over two weeks exploring the Iberian Peninsula in the lap of luxury. Traverse Spain and Portugal using a combination of high-speed train, air, and private transfer, visiting the most important cities in both countries. You'll start out in Barcelona, the city of Gaudi, and home to some of the best restaurants in Spain. A short flight takes you to Porto, the famous Portuguese coastal city, and eternal rival of the capital Lisbon, which is your next stop, reached by high-speed train. Another flight and you're back in Spain, Seville to be precise. This fiery Andalusian city is the home of flamenco. A private transfer brings you to Granada, home to the majestic Alhambra. A short high-speed train ride takes you to Madrid, your final stop. The Spanish capital is your last chance to indulge in the tapas tradition before heading home!

In addition to the tours included we can arrange a number of excursions based on your own interests. All of our tours are custom, and this is just a sample meant to give an idea of what our trips are like, and the opportunities our destinations provide.

Walk like a true Catalan and take a stroll on your first night in Barcelona along the Rambla. The nearly a mile-long street is the only avenue in the old part of Barcelona along the historical city wall.

Day 3

Day 3 - Your Second Full Day in Barcelona

Not Just Sagrada Familia

Suggestion to explore on your own

Ask any Barcelona local to pick their favorite church and you can be quite sure that Santa Maria del Mar would be it. In 1428, the church was shook by a major earthquake. Then, in July 1936, it was set on fire and burned for 11 days straight. Look inside, and you’ll still see the black scorch marks on the roof. The building has very tall columns, set 43 feet apart. Combine that airiness with vast stretches of stained glass and it almost feels like someone’s pulling you up into the sky. A visit to Barcelona Cathedral is also a unique experience. It took so long to build that you’ll find bits dating back to the 11th century, Nordic-inspired elements on the 15th-century façade, and recently reconstructed parts using the same Montserrat stone as the original. Visit the cloister and the crypt, where you’ll see, respectively, 13 contented geese and the remains of the 13-year-old martyr Eulàlia, to whom the cathedral is dedicated. It’s also worth paying the small fee to take the lift to the roof for wonderful views over the Old City.

Not Just Sagrada Familia

Colors of Art and Nature

Suggested activities for an additional cost, depending on your choice

In order to take a day trip up North you should definitely wake up early because the sites awaiting you up there are countless!

Then head South from Barcelona, towards Tarragona.

As the name suggests, Portugal’s second-largest urban area is a port city, located in the north of the country along the Douro River estuary. A small Celtic hamlet until a Roman invasion in the 4th century, Portus Cale, as it became known, distinguished itself as a major trading port for not just the region but the entire country. The old city center, Ribeira, has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1996. It is an urban landscape with over 2,000 years of remarkably well-preserved history. Traversing the narrow streets, you can’t help but notice that the spirit of local life still remains despite the increasing number of tourists.

Its rich mix of architecture, developed over the years, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996.

The capital of Portugal since 1255 when King Alphonse II moved the court from Coimbra, Lisbon is not only regarded as one of the sunniest of the European capitals but one with a rich history on display. The soft white limestone facades of the oldest neighborhood, Alfama, welcome tourists, and locals, calling to them through the medium of Fado music drifting wistfully from the abundance of bars, or the smell of petisco (Portuguese tapas) wafting from a myriad of restaurants. Like its ancient rival Porto, Lisbon rests on mighty rivers originating from the eastern Spanish highlands. Remnants of human settlements in the vicinity of the city date back to the Neolithic period and since that time successful invasions have resulted in occupation by Carthaginians, Romans, Suebi, Visigoths, and Moors. The rich tapestry of Lisbon’s history has been woven into the very fabric of the city.

Enjoy Portuguese Culinary Delights

Suggestion to explore on your own

Lisbon is a great city to sample a range of Portuguese food from all corners of the coastal nation. Must try food in Lisbon include local specialties that originated on its cobblestone streets, as well as Portuguese dishes from other regions and cities such as the Douro, Alentejo and the Algarve. Lisbon is a city where you can dine at snack bars for two euros, drink specialty coffee, as well as enjoy some great Michelin star restaurants. Pasteis De Nata (Portuguese Egg Tarts), Bifana Sandwich (sautéed, marinated pork packed inside a crispy roll) and Bacalhau (dried and salted cod prepared in many different ways) are just a few recommendations here.

The Home of FADO

Suggestion to explore on your own

Lisbon after dark takes on an entirely different mood - one of mystery and romance. No tradition better encapsulates the passions running through the city streets better than Fado, a music genre so integral to the Portuguese experience that UNESCO recognizes it as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It’s electric, it’s raw, it’s emotional, and it's often one of travelers’ most treasured memories of Lisbon. Whether you’re in the mood for a full-on fado restaurant, where you get a traditional meal served alongside a three-hour-or-longer fado performance, or you’re just in the mood for a glass of albarino at the local watering hole, where you can hear up-and-coming fadistas give an impromptu performance, you will definitely find it here. Some of the recommended places include Mesa de Frades, Tasca do Chico, Cafe Luso, Sr. Fado de Alfama and Adega Machado.

Although it may not be the most famous city in Spain, Seville is considered by many to be the most beautiful. You get a sense of its unique charms as you meander through winding streets surrounded by characteristic white and pipeclay yellow walls of the painted buildings. Due to the hustle and bustle of port activity, 16th century Seville was the richest city in Spain. Goods of all splendor brought from the New World arrived at the feet of awestruck locals. Venture further into the city to marvel at the largest Gothic Temple in the world, Seville Cathedral, or try to imagine the sense of pride and awe felt by locals for hundreds of years as they gazed up at The Giralda Tower. This minaret was built in the Almohad period and was, for centuries, the tallest building in Spain and constructed as part of a Grand Mosque.
