France and Spain

For those looking to go somewhere a little different, this tour combines two contrasting cultures, two languages (three really - French, Catalan and Spanish), wonderful venues and great sightseeing. From Roman amphitheatres, through the medieval Popes' Palace to the modern Dali Museum, from monks to knights to artists, your group will be introduced to a broad array of historical culture.
