Spain and Portugal—these are two countries with rich histories and distinct cultures, and on this affordable Best of Spain & Portugal tour, you'll see their fascinating highlights. In Spain, you’ll overnight in Madrid, Granada, Cordoba, Seville, and Salamanca. In Portugal, you’ll stay in Lisbon and Porto. One of the tour highlights is a guided visit to Toledo, a treasure chest of art and historical architecture. In this old walled town, built on a hill, visit the 12th-century Church of St. Tome, which has one of El Greco's most famous paintings. You will be delighted by the included visit of the Alhambra complex, built in the 13th century by Moorish kings featuring one of the oldest decorative gardens in the Western World. In Avila—a UNESCO World Heritage walled city founded in the 11th century—visit St. Theresa's Convent, opened in 1636 on the birthplace of St. Teresa. In Portugal, visit Lisbon with a local guide, who will show you Belem Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built circa 1514 to commemorate the expedition of Vasco de Gama, and Porto's cathedral, built between the 12th and 13th centuries in Romanesque style on a panoramic terrace overlooking the port wine cellars on the banks of the Douro River. In Spain, enjoy guided sightseeing in Toledo, Granada, Seville and Madrid. These local guides - experts in the cities' histories and cultures - will highlight the must-see sights. All of this and more—including a visit with wine tasting to a local wine cellar in Montilla—await you on this fabulous and affordable Spain and Portugal tour designed for value-minded travelers.
