We meet at Gatwick Airport for our direct scheduled Easyjet flight to Malaga. On arrival in Malaga we are met by our tour manager who will accompany us throughout our tour. We transfer in our private executive coach to Granada where we enjoy a short orientation tour with our tour manager, before checking in at the 4* Alhamar Hotel in Granada for a two night stay. A set three course welcome dinner and drink is served in our hotel this evening, and the second night is on bed and breakfast basis.
This morning we have a guided tour of the Alhambra Palace. Dating from the 14th century, the Palace is the high point of Moorish culture and is recognised as the world’s greatest Moorish monument. With gardens, fortifications and sumptuous palaces, it was the home of many of the Arabic sultans who ruled the whole province. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore Granada with its maze of winding streets and old Christian and Gypsy quarters.
We leave Granada and travel to Seville. En route we enjoy a guided tour at the Moorish capital of Cordoba, once famous for its Jewish community, and The Mesquita, the grandest mosque ever constructed by the Moors. We continue to Seville where we stay three nights at the 4* Tryp Macarena Hotel. A set three course dinner without drinks is served in our hotel this evening, and the remaining two nights are on bed and breakfast basis.
This morning we have a guided tour of Seville. The capital of Andalucía made famous by the Conquistadors was once one of the richest cities in the world and is now home to the world’s largest cathedral. A guided tour of the Reales Alacazares this afternoon introduces us to a stunning Moorish palace which was the Spanish kings’ royal residence for seven centuries.
We travel to Jerez de la Frontera this morning, the capital of sherry production, with an included tasting and talk on the sherry making process at a bodegas. This afternoon we enjoy a guided tour at the Museo de Bellas Artes, formerly a convent, and now one of Spain’s finest galleries.
Lying within an amphitheatre of limestone hills and standing above 120m cliffs, Ronda is one of the most dramatically sited towns in Spain. The Moorish part of the town is divided from the modern part by the extraordinary Tajo, a 90 metre gorge with the river flowing below. After a morning guided city tour and some time at leisure for lunch, we continue to Malaga Airport for our direct scheduled Easyjet flight to Gatwick (we are scheduled to arrive back at approximately 22h50).
