Day 1. (Thursday) LISBON – SEVILLE
Call on at Estação do Oriente in Lisbon and departure by bus southbound heading to the Atlantic Coast. Pleasant journey enjoying the stunning natural beauty of Alentejo & Algarve regions in southern Portugal. Crossing the Guadiana International Bridge you’ll enter Spain and the beautiful Andalusia, a region with a huge heritage from a splendorous past. Arrival to Seville, the capital of Andalusia. Transfer on your own from the station to the hotel. Free time to discover at your leisure this magnificent city situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River. We recommend you to leave your luggages in the hotel and take a stroll into the historic quarter of Seville, that treasures many constructions that have the World Heritage designation, or discover the popular neighborhoods of Santa Cruz, the natural setting of “Carmen” as well as the place where the myth of “Don Juan” developed and Triana, of deep popular flavor and cradle of bullfighters and artists. Hotel accommodation.
Day 2. (Friday) SEVILLE – TARIFA – ASSILAH – TANGIER
Departure from Seville southbound heading to the Mediterranean Coast. Arrive to Tarifa or Algeciras where a ferry boat will be used for a short and interesting crossing of the Strait of Gibraltar towards Africa. Arrival to Tangier, disembark, clear customs and panoramic visit of the residential areas, palaces and old colonial neighbourhoods. Arrival at the Kasbah of Tangier to begin our walking tour of the medina and its souks. Here our senses are sharpened: sounds, smells and alleyways that move us in time. We will enjoy a typical lunch (included). In the afternoon, departure to Assilah where we will enjoy free time to get to know one of the cleanest and whitest medinas in Morocco. We will discover the tranquillity of its streets, as well as its characteristic artistic murals and the beautiful sunset from the Krikia viewpoint. Return to Tangier, dinner at the hotel and accommodation.
Day 3. (Saturday) TANGIER – TETUAN – CHAOUEN
Breakfast and departure to Tetouan, the most authentic city in the North of Morocco, known by the nickname “The White Dove“. We will discover places of interest such as Plaza Moullay El Mehdi and the Spanish Enlargement until Plaza Hassan II, where the Royal Palace is located. We will continue through the neighbourhood of Luneta and the Jewish quarter. Walk through the Medina of Tetouan, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, a jewel of Muslim culture, with winding streets, pretty squares, narrow and long narrow alleys, corners and great doors, which attract the visitor’s curiosity … finishing at Bab Okla or the Gate of the Queen. Stop for lunch (not included) and continue to Chaouen, a charming small town of about 40,000 inhabitants located at about 2.200 ft., of very little car traffic where you can breathe clean and fresh air that invites you to stay a few days to discover the beauty of the place and its surroundings. The great variety of colours, shops and bazaars, contrast with the dazzling blue of the houses. Arrival at the hotel, dinner and accommodation.
Day 4. (Sunday) CHAOUEN – TANGIER – TARIFA – SEVILLE
Breakfast and free time to make the last purchases or to visit the charming corners of Chefchaouen: the old medina, the Kebir Mosque, the Alcazaba, the Mellah (Jewish quarter) or the Uta el Hamman Square, of special charm, surrounded by cafes and restaurants. After lunch (not included) we take the route to Tangier to embark back to Algeciras. Drive inland heading back to Seville. Arrival at the hotel, free time at your disposal and accommodation. May we recommend you an optional boat trip on the Guadalquivir River to enjoy the panoramic views that exist from the boat? Then you can walk along the banks of the Guadalquivir River, the “great king of Andalusia” as the local poet Luis de Góngora y Argote called it. And at night you should go out for Tapa-hopping, an unbeatable way to experience Andalusian culture and savour the charms of its bars and taverns. Tapas are an exquisite, varied and choice example of popular gastronomy which allows you to share a variety of dishes and try a wide range of different products for reasonable prices.
