Then: fuel up for the notorious nightlife with a feast of local cuisine. Included today: -Driving tour of Barcelona Meals: -Dinner
Day 2: Barcelona to Valencia
You’ve got a whole morning to spend in Barcelona, so jump at the chance to catch up on anything you might have missed yesterday.

Included today: -Walking tour of Valencia Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional activities: -Explore the Cava caves
Day 3: Valencia
We’ve cleared your schedule so you can spend a whole day exploring the birthplace of paella (and obviously dig into copious amounts of the local dish). Check out the Old Quarter for some serious throwback charm or just, you know, hit the beach. We won’t judge. Later, there’s an optional pub crawl to get involved in, so brace your beer-swilling arm. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: - Pub crawl
Day 4: Valencia to Granada
Wake up to a scenic drive to Granada, the last Moorish city in Spain to fall to the Christians. Ready to discover why this is the hottest destination in Andalusia? Meals: -Breakfast

Day 7: Asilah to Fes
Today you'll discover why the oldest and largest medieval city in the world is better known for its food. Work up an appetite on our drive through the Moroccan landscape – we're going local for dinner again tonight. In other words: tagine. Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 8: Fes
Tick off the Royal Palace, the Jewish neighbourhood, the UNESCO-listed medina and a leather tannery on a walking tour with a local guide. Then hunt down a hammam and lose yourself in a labyrinth of souks and cobblestone streets.

Afterwards, relax with some mint tea and congratulate yourself on your haggling prowess. Included today: -Guided tour of Fes Meals: -Breakfast
Day 9: Fes
Spend the day checking out the Roman ruins of Volubilis, once the ruling centre of the Roman province of Mauritania. The ancient site dates back to 40 AD, which explains why the ville nouvelle, or 'new city' neighborhood of Fes bears its name – despite being 700 years old.

Day 17: Madrid
