Meet Madrid for the First Time Again
This morning, feel free to join our optional walking tour of the city center with a local guide—an insightful introduction to local history and culture, followed by a visit of the Prado Museum.

Day 3 Madrid—Segovia—Avila—Salamanca.

Castles, Cathedrals, and Cooking Classes
Discover Segovia with its fairy tale fortress, an inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty’s castle, or see the Cathedral and soaring Roman aqueduct. In Avila, one of the best preserved medieval bastions, we’ll provide you with the tickets to walk on the Avila city walls allowing you to see the city center from above, a rare experience in many European cities. After arriving in Salamanca, spend the evening at leisure discovering the city. You might choose to have an intimate evening out to dine on Salamanca specialties. Your Tour Director is happy to recommend favorite eateries
Includes meal(s): Breakfast

Day 4 Explore Salamanca.

Culinary Delights and Plaza Lights
If you are a foodie, be sure to book in advance the exclusive optional cooking class in a real castle, as space is limited. If you prefer, explore Salamanca’s city center—a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Plaza Mayor—one of Spain’s most beautiful squares, particularly when illuminated at night
Includes meal(s): Breakfast

Day 5 Salamanca—Valladolid—Burgos.

Vibrant Vineyards in Valladolid
Valladolid is a provincial city with a lively character, thanks in part to the student population of the local university.

Includes meal(s): Breakfast

Day 6 Burgos.

Faith, a Flowing River, and Fossil Finds
Tour the city of Burgos at your own pace—from its majestic gothic cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the banks of the beautiful Duoro River. Perhaps, reserve a space on MyCOSMOS to visit the archaeological site of Atapuerca, UNESCO World Heritage Site, combined with the Museum of Human Evolution, for a fascinating journey through science and anthropology
