Visit to Retiro Park, an oasis in the city center, where we will see the lake and the Glass Palace. Admission to Las Ventas Bullring included.

Day 3

Madrid – Granada

You will leave Madrid by bus in the early morning. If the group of English-speaking travelers is small, they may have to share the trip to Granada with Spanish-speaking passengers. You will travel to the south across La Mancha, stopping in Puerto Lápice, a ‘manchego’ village evoking the figure of Don Quixote. You will enter Andalusia via Despeñaperros. You will arrive at Granada. In the afternoon, you will visit the immense Alhambra Palace, with entrance and local guide included, and its beautiful Generalife gardens, built in Arab times. Later, enjoy an evening transfer to the Albaicín of Granada, a World Heritage site along with the Alhambra, where you can enjoy dinner in a restaurant in the narrow winding streets of this captivating Medieval Moorish quarter. Tonight, you will have the option to attend a flamenco dance show and the traditional neighborhood of Sac­romonte.

Note: in the Alhambra complex, the Nazari palaces allow a limited number of people in at a time. In the highly improbable case of not being able to visit this area of the Alhambra, a visit to Los Alcázares will be included in Seville (which have similar architecture and features).

Overnight in Granada (Breakfast).

You will leave Granada and travel towards the Costa del Sol. Arrive at Malaga and spend some time to stroll in the historic center with its cathedral and the Picasso Museum. Afterwards, you will continue along the coastal motorway with beautiful views of the Mediterranean. You will go to Puerto Banus in Marbella, a high-level recreational port. Time for lunch. In the afternoon, you will continue through the hills and their stories of bandoliers until you arrive at Ronda, a very beautiful white town with a large gorge that divides it in two. Continue to Seville where you will arrive at the end of the afternoon.
