BARCELONA, MADRID, LISBON & OPORTO - 2018

Tour Code - DBO 13 days - BARCELONA to OPORTO From $2842 USD

Spend 12 nights exploring the fascinating cities of Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, and Oporto. Your vacation package to Spain and Portugal includes your own Local Host® to show you the popular – and less-travelled – sights in each city.

Your vacation in Spain begins in enchanting Barcelona with a guided tour along the elegant Passeig de Gràcia to see the captivating façade of La Pedrera – among other remarkable and historic sites. Sample some sparking cava wine or shop for handcrafted Gaudi keepsakes before traveling by high-speed train to Madrid.

Your visit to the capital city of Spain includes guided sightseeing to see the world’s finest collections of European art in the Museo Nacional del Prado. Your guide will show you Madrid’s notable sights, including the Plaza de España, Parliament, and the ornate Royal Palace.

Your Local Host is always happy to recommend activities and destinations within the city as often or as little as you wish during your stay.

From Madrid, you’ll travel by air to Portugal to explore the heart of Lisbon with its elegant squares, pedestrian streets, cafes, and shops. Wander the cobblestone alleys of the ancient Moorish quarter of Alfama, and drive along the grand Avenida da Liberdade to Pombal Square.

You’ll travel by high-speed train to Oporto where you’ll enjoy guided sightseeing to learn about Oporto’s history and culture – from the exquisite Porto Cathedral to the gothic and baroque designs of the Church of Sao Francisco.

Spend your time in Oporto shopping at the colorful Bolhão market, or sampling the city’s famous local port wine. Your Local Host is always on hand to answer your questions about popular locales and less-travelled local favorites.
