“Lady of Spain, I adore you. Right from the night I first saw you.” We’re sure you’ll be joining Bing Crosby and Eddie Fisher in singing these lyrics when you return from this 12-day vacation to Spain—you may even be inspired to grab an accordion and sing along! That’s because Monograms has made it easy for you to travel to Spain. We've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, share little-known secrets, help you personalize your trip, and  help ensure your vacation runs smoothly. You’ll have a Local Host in each city, so you’ll have someone to help you feel at home and at ease.

And did we mention that your train travel will be first-class on Spain’s high-speed trains? Between the transfers and transportation we've included, the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, and the hotels we've booked, all you have to do is have fun. Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host in each city to help you navigate, translate if needed, and feel at ease, and you've got yourself a vacation that is more like a fiesta.
