COSTA DEL SOL
Spain's Costa del Sol stretches along just over 90 miles of the Malaga province and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations. The Costa del Sol is known for its beautiful landscapes, delicious food, all while experiencing the warmth of its people. Here you will also discover a rich cultural heritage, fabulous beaches, coastal sites, and charming villages. On your tour you will travel to the nearby towns of Seville and Ronda to take in such sights as the Alcazar Palace and Plaza de Toros, the oldest bull ring in Spain. Your tour includes the #1 attraction in all of Spain, Granada and the Alhambra Palace. Visiting the Costa del Sol would not be complete without a tour to Gibraltar to view the infamous Rock of Gibraltar.
The two-night Madrid extension includes Madrid city tour, the ancient buildings of the Barrio de la Moreria, the old Moorish quarter, the Renaissance and Baroque buildings of the Habsburg era in Calle Mayor, Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Villa, Pass Monumento de la Encarnacion, Puerta de la Opera, Puerta del Sol and other well-known sights and squares. See modern-day icons such as Ventas Bullring or Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, and take a walk around the city’s newest park, Madrid Rio, from Puente del Rey to Puente de Segovia. We bring this grand tour to a close with a tour of Madrid's Royal Palace, the former home of the Spanish royal family. Built in classical Italian Baroque style in the 18th century, on the site of the ancient alcazar [Arab-fortress], it is one of the most beautiful and best-preserved palaces in Europe.
Cost for the trip is $2,999 if you register by March 31, 2020. The post tour to Madrid is an additional $599.
