Escapes by Globus
Off-season shouldn't mean second-class travel. With milder temperatures and smaller crowds, our Escapes tours mean Globus quality whilst taking advantage of off-peak deals.
This Escape brings together the sights and cultures of Spain's and Portugal’s most famous cities—Barcelona, Madrid, Cordoba, Seville, and Lisbon—and weaves them into one marvellous vacation. You'll spend two nights each in Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, and Lisbon, and you'll enjoy guided sightseeing in each. Fans of art and architecture are sure to be delighted by the visit to Barcelona's Sagrada Familia Basilica, architect Gaudì's masterpiece. Begun in 1882, it is still not completed. In Madrid, visit the famous Prado Museum, which houses 8,000 pieces of Western painting and is one of the world's most prestigious art museums. A guided walking tour in Cordoba showcases the sights, including a visit to the magnificent 8th-century Mosque of the Caliphs. In Seville, visit the Casa de Pilatos, with a splendid collection of Roman sculptures.
In Seville, you'll enjoy a special dinner with local specialities and Flamenco entertainment, and in Lisbon, a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. Throughout this Spain and Portugal vacation, you'll be accompanied by an expert Tour Director and Local Guides who will bring these destinations to life with in-depth, first-hand knowledge of the cities' histories, sights, cultures, and insider secrets. Magnificent churches and cathedrals, local specialities and wine, an expert Tour Director, guided sightseeing with Local Guides, and much more...what else could you ask for in a dream holiday and guided tour of Spain and Lisbon?
