A Tale of Three Spains: City art, Basque cuisine and hilltop shrines

Carthusian Monastery

SCALA DEI, Catalonia

Barcelona, San Sebastian, & Madrid. Your 11 DAY Private Tour. You choose the dates.

There are many different Spains. The ancient cuisine and wild Atlantic cliff lines of the Basque Country are very distinct from the glittering Mediterranean culture of Catalonia, which in turn feels like a world away from the blazing plains and mythic ruins of the Castilian interior. On this fully immersive 11-day tour you pass from one to another, through the grand urban gateways of Barcelona, San Sebastian, and Madrid. 

You will enter the life of each city by way of its art, history, and gastronomy – taking in museum masterpieces with private guides, drinking wines with master vintners, making personal connections that allow for a deeper engagement with the place and its people. You’ll also explore the regions between: on day trips to the peaks of Montserrat, the bodegas of La Rioja, the fertile coastal reaches of Penedés. These experiences add up to a greater sense of the colors, textures, and details that make Spain such a tapestry of culture.
