ARRIVE IN MADRID, SPAIN. Check into your hotel. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers. (D)

MADRID. Not only is Madrid the capital of Spain, but because it is situated 2,180 feet above sea level, the Spaniards rightly say it 's the nearest thing to Heaven. On the included guided city tour, discover the main sights and end the tour with a walk in the Barrio de La Latina. Stop in one of the many bars for a TAPAS TASTING. Consider an optional trip to Toledo. The splendid setting of this old walled city above the Tagus was made famous in El Greco 's painting and, even now, it 's like a great open-air museum of Spanish history and art. (B)

Day 3:
MADRID-CUENCA-VALENCIA. Travel southeast to Cuenca, perched high above the precipices of the Jucar and Huecar Rivers, famous for its “hanging houses” that are suspended over the Huecar ravine. Journey on to Valencia, Spain 's third-largest city, and explore the city with a Local Guide.
Today 's Distance: 255 mi/ 410 km (B,D)

Day 4:
VALENCIA-PENISCOLA-BARCELONA. Today, visit PEÑÍSCOLA CASTLE in Castellon, built by the Knights Templar in the 14th century.
