This special program begins in cosmopolitan Madrid, with its stunning architecture, lively streets and renowned museums. Immerse yourself in the artistic and architectural masterpieces in Toledo, delight in charming Burgos and tour the Old Quarter in San Sebastián, home to some of the city’s finest architecture. Continue to Pamplona, long associated with the running of the bulls and the setting for Hemingway’s “The Sun Also Rises.” Visit Bilbao and the famous Guggenheim Museum, which houses a vast collection of contemporary art. Travel to the lovely town of Zaragoza before concluding in the vibrant city of Barcelona. Marvel at its highlights, including the architecture of Antoni Gaudí.
