What could be better than a trip to one of Spain’s most cosmopolitan, culturally rich cities? Well, how about a trip to two?
They might be fierce rivals on the football pitch, but Madrid and Barcelona go together with perfect harmony for holidaymakers. You can explore the sights of Spain at its finest during a four-day vacation with hotel stays included in both cities.
Your adventure begins in Barcelona, where you can pack in plenty during your two nights.
Marvel at the incredible architecture of Antoni Gaudí, including Park Güell, an outdoor modern masterpiece made up of a network of parks and gardens that has been declared a Unesco
World Heritage Site, before dropping by at Museu Picasso, a gallery housing works from the early years of one of Barcelona’s best-loved sons.
Not to be outdone, the majesty of Madrid can be sampled at The Prado, the country’s national art museum, which boasts art collections from the 12th to the 19th centuries. The nightlife is buzzing here, too, with the Spanish capital boasting the largest number of bars per capita in Europe.
