Duration: 13 Days
Variety is the spice of life—and of every great holiday. In addition to the flavourful ports, sherries, and sangrias Spain and Portugal are famous for, this tour of the Iberian Peninsula adds the tantalising taste of Morocco to your rich itinerary. Following the scent of fresh mint, ginger, and turmeric through the narrow streets of Tangier—and the scenic winding roads to the dramatic views of Cap Spartel—adds just the right kick to your tasty tour of Spain and Portugal.
Beyond Portugal’s lively Lisbon, the pilgrimage site of Fátima, and the cork farms of Azaria, we pop open the fun in Spain with visits to artsy Madrid, ancient Seville, storied Granada, medieval Toledo, and the famous Costa del Sol where you’ll have a full day at leisure for your choice of sunbathing, boutique browsing, people watching, or all of the above.
