An 8-Day, 7-Night Spain Itinerary

Madrid, Toledo, Segovia, Avila, Barcelona and Freixenet

In January of 2013 we ran a "preview" small group tour of Spain with nine travelers.   The Spain itinerary was a year in the planning.  The Traveling Professor took 2 individual "scouting" tours to Spain previous to the preview trip to make sure we could come up with a tour that our travelers would like, and Olé! - we did.  Whether or not planning to travel with The Traveling Professor on a small group tour to Spain or planning to go it alone, take a look at our sample itinerary for some great ideas about a trip to Spain.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.
