Globus | Spain, Portugal & Morocco

On this Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour, experience these three glorious countries, each with a rich history and culture! Overnight in Lisbon, Seville, Rabat, Marrakesh, Ouarzazate, Erfoud, Fez, Tangier, the Costa del Sol, Granada, and Madrid. Tour highlights include the Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon, a symbol of Portugal's power during the Age of Discovery; Madrid's Prado Museum, with its 8,000 pieces of Western painting; Seville's Casa de Pilatos with its collection of Roman sculptures; Granada's Alhambra complex; and Toledo's Church of Santo Tomé, which houses one of El Greco's most famous paintings. Enjoy a ferry ride across the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco and in Rabat, visit the beautiful Mohammed V Mausoleum, with the tombs of the Moroccan king and his two sons.

Step back in time in Marrakesh with sightseeing that includes Bahia Palace, built in the late 19th century, and the 16th-century Saadian Tombs (if closed, visit Badia Palace instead). Wander through the Djemaa El-Fna, a square and exotic bazaar offering some of the greatest open-air entertainment. Listen to the storytellers-an integral part of the culture-and browse for handicrafts. In Fez, a guide leads you through the labyrinthine Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Medersa Bou Inania, an architectural work of art built between 1350 and 1357.

One cannot think of Casablanca without thinking of the homonymous movie. Here, Globus has arranged a special experience for you… enjoy lunch at Rick's Café Américain, a re-creation of the bar made famous in the movie. Another special treat is a four-wheel drive to the sand dune of Erg Chebbi, formed by the Sahara sand. Back in Spain, spend time on the Costa del Sol, where you can relax and soak up the sun on the beach; and in Madrid, a special farewell paella dinner awaits at a local restaurant.

These are just a few of the many highlights offered on this spectacular Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour. A memorable holiday indeed!
