This is a slice of the South of Spain – a capsule that covers the important cities of Spain, Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia. It is tantalising in the variety it offers – the cityscapes of Madrid, the history in Seville, the beauty of the Andalusian cities of Granada and Cordoba, the history and architecture of Toledo, the beaches and arts of Valencia, the Flamenco, the beaches, and yes, the football… It is a bit rushed and the schedule tight, but there is a lot to see… In case you want to spread it out a bit, write to us, we would love to help out… In fact we would recommend cutting a pace that is a tad less hurried…
