From Bilbao to Madrid
May 11 - 20, 2020
Spain is a treasure chest of wonders – from Madrid’s vast and majestic 18th century Royal Palace to one of the wonders of modern architecture, Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Explore one of Spain’s best kept secrets on this trip that begins in the north where you can discover the Basque Country with a visit to Bilbao and the seaside town of San Sebastián. On the way south to Madrid revel in the vistas and vineyards of the Rioja Region and the historic city of Segovia with its Roman ruins and medieval old town. Then on to the bustling metropolis of Madrid, a destination whose storied past is as rich as its cultural present. From there we will enjoy an excursion to the famed city of Toledo. A special bonus is an overnight in one of Spain’s paradors, a historic building transformed into a hotel.
