Day 5


Meet your English-speaking guide today for a 4-hour walking tour of Seville. Visit the 15th-century cathedral, one of the most breathtaking in Christendom, and see La Giralda, Seville’s most famous monument. The Moorish tower was erected as a minaret in the 12th century. Visit the Alcazar, a magnificent 14th-century Mudejar palace that is still in use and one of the oldest royal residences in Europe. You will also enjoy a walk through the Barrio de Santa Cruz, a maze of narrow streets, whitewashed houses, small squares and flower-filled patios.

Your driver will take you to the Tablao El Arenal this evening for an authentic flamenco show. The Tablao El Arenal is situated in a building dating from the 17th Century, and its architecture and decoration are typically Andalusian. Enjoy a complimentary beverage during the show. After the show, transfer back to your hotel by private vehicle.

Day 6


Depart Seville this morning with your private vehicle and English-speaking driver for a half-day excursion to Córdoba. Upon arrival in Córdoba, meet your local guide for a 2½-hour walking tour of the attractive, whitewashed streets of this medieval Moorish city, the heart of which is the old Jewish quarter. Visit the magnificent Mezquita, built between the 8th and 10th centuries and considered one of the most extraordinary buildings in Europe. In the 1520s, a Christian Baroque nave was constructed in the heart of the mosque, which fortunately is so large that this resplendent but anomalous addition did not destroy the unity of the building. After your walking tour, enjoy leisurely exploring the city further on your own, and perhaps enjoy a leisurely lunch before being transferred back to Seville.

The best time to travel to Gibraltar is during the summer months of June to September when the weather is warm and sunny. During this time, temperatures range from 18°C to 27°C, making it perfect for outdoor activities and sightseeing. However, it’s worth noting that this is also the peak tourist season, so prices for accommodation and flights may be higher.
