Discover the main attractions as well as the hidden gems of two colorful countries-France and Spain-on this exciting vacation stretching from Paris to Madrid. Among the less known tour highlights is Carnac, with its megaliths-standing stones-dating back to 4500 to 2000 BC – and learn about their mysteries with a local expert. You’ll also witness many UNESCO World Heritage Sites sure to please history fans. Among these, visit Bordeaux, where a walking tour with a local expert features the important highlights of these 362 historic monuments; spend time wandering around Mont St. Michel, an 8th-century abbey that sits on a rocky isle. Spain’s Ávila was founded in the 11th century and the town’s medieval walls were built to protect Spanish territories from the Moors. Marvel at Burgos’ limestone cathedral, dating back to the 13th century. In Segovia, visit the well-preserved Roman aqueduct, built around 50 AD, and the gothic cathedral, dating to the 16th century.

The “grande dune du Pilat”, the great dune of Pilat, along with the Landes landscapes will make unforgettable scenic highlights of this France and Spain tour. You’ll also spend time in some attractive coastal towns. In France, visit Brest, nestled on one of Europe’s most beautiful harbors; La Rochelle, with its historic port dominated by three medieval towers; and Rochefort, built to defend the French navy in the 17th century and today known as one of France’s most beautiful villages. In Spain, visit Biarritz, an ancient fishing village turned trendy seaside resort, and Santander, a coastal city renowned in the 19th century as a tourist destination for Spanish elite.

From the UNESCO World Heritage Sites to the picturesque coastal towns, this France and Spain tour is perfect for value-minded travelers!
