About Spain - From $1,106.00 USD

View Itinerary

This nine-day rail program is an ideal way to experience the distinct cultural identities of Spain's three largest cities. Begin your adventure in Barcelona, the country's second largest metropolis. A world-famous destination for art, music, and design, three days in Barcelona will introduce travelers to the city's famous architectural masterpieces and public spaces, dance-till-dawn nightlife, and relaxed beach scene. Continue your Spain vacation by taking the train west to Madrid; Spain's capital has an urban spirit and a royal pedigree. Travelers on this by rail can visit several of the world's most esteemed art museums, including the Prado, and view collections that house some of the most identifiable art work. But Madrid offers more than museums; three days in the city is also more than enough time to experience its critically acclaimed gastro-tourism scene where there is something to please every palate. The final rail stop is Seville, Spain's most romantic city. The long-time Muslim influence is apparent in this city's Mudejar architecture. Spend three days exploring the area around Seville's Gothic cathedral, soaring La Giralda bell tower, and Alcazar palace and gardens-all glow golden in the moonlight and the scent of flowers and citrus trees mingle to create a heady fragrance that leaves travelers seduced by Spain. This will leave you mesmerized.
