Spain has a wealth of attractions just waiting to be explored. On an escorted tour of Spain with Jules Verne, you’ll experience the flavour of Andalucía, the vibrancy of Catalonia, the style of Madrid and the majesty of the Sierras, which are all underpinned by historical intrigue and cultural diversity. Cruises in Spain are also gaining popularity, which is why we are proud to offer Andalucía from the Water among our collection of tours.
Spain is famous for its golden miles of coastline. However, it’s only when you explore its many other gems, from its sophisticated cities and traditional villages to its awesome peaks and fertile plains, that you can truly understand and appreciate the unique character and passion of this country. On a small group tour of Spain, you’ll have the chance to really get to know this breathtaking destination.
The most southern region of Andalucía is quintessentially Spanish, with its fiery flamenco and traditional bullfighting. Towns to tour include historic Seville and the incredible Granada, which is home to one of the most brilliant jewels of universal architecture, the 14th-century Alhambra. You can discover Seville and Moorish Spain while leisurely cruising on one of our Spain cruise tours.
If you want to immerse yourself in culture on an escorted tour to Spain, look no further than Catalonia in the east. This prosperous region boasts the bright, cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. There, you will find the UNESCO-protected works of Antoni Gaudí, as well as an enviable array of distinctive architecture, art, fascinating museums, a well-preserved Gothic quarter, and charming and unusual parks.
No visit to Spain is complete without a tour of the capital itself. Chic Madrid’s architectural legacies include the Royal Palace and one of the world’s largest art galleries, featuring works from Goya, Velazquez, El Greco, Murillo, Rubens and Rembrandt. Just north of the capital, you’ll find Segovia and its enchanting fairy tale-like Alcázar, which inspired Walt Disney’s Cinderella Castle.
