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.
