Itinerary

This itinerary is the starting point for your tour, but it’s not set in stone. If there are days you would like to change, or specific places you’d like to go, we can work with you to create a personalized program that fits the needs of you and your students.

Day 1: Overnight Flight

Depart from the USA.

Day 2: Granada

Arrive in Málaga and meet your ACIS Tour Manager. Drive to Granada, known for its exotic blend of Moorish, Andalusian and Muslim cultures, for an orientation tour and dinner.

Day 3: Granada

Begin your morning sightseeing tour of Granada with a guided visit to the world-famous Alhambra, one of the greatest accomplishments of Islamic art and architecture. Insightful commentary enhances this tour, which includes the fragrant Generalife Gardens on the grounds of a summer palace within the complex. Then explore the narrow streets in the city's Sacromonte area, noted for unique cave dwellings that are still in use today. Later you may opt to take a flamenco dancing lesson from a master teacher, followed by a dramatic flamenco show, or zambra, held inside a traditional cave venue.

Day 4: Seville

Drive to Córdoba, once the largest and most powerful city in the Western world. Here you’ll enjoy a sightseeing tour including a guided visit of the massive Mezquita. Built as a mosque on the site of a former Roman temple, it’s now a cathedral—and a reflection of the religious diversity that shaped the city’s culture. Then perhaps sample some of the region’s famous tapas for lunch before driving through olive groves en route to Seville.

Day 5: Seville

Today's guided sightseeing tour in Seville includes highlights such as the immense Cathedral, the third-largest church in the world and burial place of Christopher Columbus, and the grand Giralda Tower. In the afternoon, discover your talento artistico and craft your own unique souvenir during a Spanish fan painting workshop that illuminates the interesting history of these beautiful works of art. This evening mingle and speak Spanish with locals as you explore picturesque Santa Cruz, the former Jewish quarter of this medieval city, filled with charming squares, cafés and gardens.

Day 6: Costa del Sol

Travel this morning to Arcos de la Frontera, one of the region’s famous hillside pueblos blancos, or white villages, so named for their vividly whitewashed buildings topped by red-tile roofs. Explore the town before you continue on to the Costa del Sol (“Coast of the Sun”) for a free afternoon to enjoy the local beach culture.

Day 7: Costa del Sol

Today you may opt to journey to Tangier, Morocco, where you can explore the Grand Socco, a popular marketplace square, and enjoy an included Moroccan lunch. Otherwise remain in the Costa del Sol and take advantage of the abundant sporting facilities or perhaps sample espetos, the local wood-grilled seafood specialty.

Day 8: Departure

Depart for the USA.



Optional Extensions and Extra Nights:

Discover more of la vida española on a two-night extension via high-speed AVE train from Málaga to Madrid including sightseeing and the Prado Museum.
