Join us to explore the true Spain, beyond the beach resorts of the sun-kissed Costa. Unearth the historic riches of this ancient country on included visits to majestic Seville, Granada and the spectacular Alhambra, and the gleaming, white-walled town of Ronda, which perches on the cliffs above the El Tajo canyon. On this great-value Spanish holiday you'll also have the chance to explore the magnificent Moorish stronghold of Cordoba and its extraordinary Mezquita, on a fascinating optional excursion.

Fascinating fact: Moorish poets described the Alhambra as "a pearl set in emeralds," an allusion to the colour of its buildings and the woods surrounding them.

You say: "We wanted a taster of Andalucia, and the Seville, Granada and Classic Spain tour gave us a superb one. A well-managed experience of the highlights of this region."

Your Base: Hotels in Antequera, Andalucia

The Andalusian resort of Antequera lies on a plain between mountains and olive-covered hills, its shops, bars and restaurants offering a friendly welcome to visitors. The town has a long history, which can be traced back through the 13th-century castle and its Roman baths all the way to the nearby prehistoric burial chambers like Cueva de la Menga.

Seville, Granada And Classic Spain Holiday Itinerary

Day One: Fly to Spain

Fly to Malaga, and make the one-hour transfer by comfortable, air-conditioned coach to your hotel in Antequera.

Day Two: Included Seville excursion

Today's full-day trip takes us to Seville. Explore the city's orange-tree-fringed squares, and see the huge cathedral, the Giralda Tower and the Moorish royal palace - the Alcazar. Seville is also home to many excellent tapas bars, so be sure to stop for tapas and a glass of fino sherry (payable locally) during your visit.

Day Three: Optional Cordoba excursion

Spend today relaxing and exploring Antequera, or join our full-day excursion to the city of Cordoba. This elegant, former Roman and Moorish capital of Spain has La Mezquita, an immense Mosque into which a Christian cathedral has been incorporated, at its heart. After a guided tour of this magnificent building, you'll be free to explore the narrow lanes and corridors of the nearby ancient Juderia.

Day Four: Included Ronda excursion

On today's full-day excursion, you'll travel through a countryside dotted with villages of whitewashed houses, to Ronda. Set above the dramatic El Tajo gorge, which cuts a swathe through the sierra, this once-Moorish citadel is a maze of narrow streets and fine Renaissance houses. Don't miss the Plaza de Toros, Ronda's legendary 18th-century bullring, and perhaps cross the Puente Nuevo bridge, which spans the gorge and links the new and old towns. You'll also see the city's fascinating Roman-style baths.

Day Five: Included Granada excursion

Today, we'll journey to Granada. Set in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, this great city incorporates many of Spain's most important examples of Moorish medieval architecture. Your time here will include a guided tour of the Alhambra. This outstanding UNESCO World Heritage Site is both a forbidding fortress and a palace where intricate towers and colonnades cluster around courtyard mosaics and beautiful formal gardens.

Day Six: Fly back to the UK

Transfer back to the airport and check in for your flight home.
