New Tour, Winter 2018-2019

Romans in Southern Spain–Andalusia and Merida
Dec 27, 2018-Jan 5, 2019
Director: Beverly Berg
This program focuses primarily on Andalusia in Southern Spain and features outstanding archaeological museums and the impressive ruins of the Roman era, including Emerita, Italica, and Baelo Claudia. We also visit some outstanding Moorish monuments, such as the palace at Granada and the mosque at Cordoba. The program ends in Madrid, and for those with time to spare the director can offer advice on easy extensions on your own to Madrid and Toledo. The program uses Spain’s efficient public transportation system (trains and buses). Participants should be good walkers and light packers. Weather should be sunny and moderate (somewhat colder in Madrid with historic highs in the 50s) but of course cannot be guaranteed.
