Enjoy the scenery as you travel to two of Spain’s most beautiful cities, Avila and Salamanca.

Enter the historical center, and admire the sandstone-built Plaza Mayor, regarded as one of Spain’s most beautiful grand squares. Also see the Old and New Cathedrals and the exquisitely carved façade of the entrance to Salamanca University. Plus capture the splendid city views from Salamanca’s partly restored, arched Roman Bridge.
Along the way, hear how UNESCO-listed Avila is one of Spain’s best-preserved medieval cities and still girded by its original walls. Discover why it’s known as the City of Stones and Saints, and admire the walls with their crenelated towers and gates.

Afterward, enjoy free time for lunch (own expense) and to explore independently before your return to Madrid. Your tour then ends back in Madrid.
