These two hospitable countries are rich in historical sites and architecture, fine food and wine, spectacular landscapes, dramatic shorelines and beautiful beaches. We will experience all of this at a leisurely pace, keeping our overnight stopovers to a minimum.
First, we discover the magic of Spain including the parks and gardens of Madrid, the Gothic Cathedral of Cordoba, the amazing Alhambra Palace in Granada, the British colony of Gibraltar, the lovely mountain town of Ronda and the lively atmosphere of Spain's old capital, Seville. We also enjoy some relaxation in Torremolinos, Spain's most popular Mediterranean resort.
In Portugal we discover why visitors return again and again. We see the magnificent coastal scenery of the Algarve, the gentle Monchique mountains, old churches, castles and cathedrals, picturesque fishing villages, olive groves and vineyards. We spend some time in Evora, one of Portugal’s most beautiful and historic cities, before finishing off with touring in the historic old capital, Lisbon.
***Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
