We begin in Spain's liveliest city, Barcelona, then visit Cava sparkling wine country and the amazing mountains of Priorat, before taking a day of respite in the gourmet capital of Spain, San Sebastian, and a three-star Michelin dinner. Then on to Spain’s famous wine regions of Rioja and Ribera del Duero, with a break to visit Europe’s most interesting active archaeological dig. We conclude our Spain visit with time in Madrid for art, culture, and flamenco dancing, then move to Portugal for three days that include visits to port houses, a boat trip on the spectacularly beautiful Douro River, and a tour of the world’s largest cork factory.
