Day 2Join your tour manager for an included visit to historic Seville, the great ‘City of Flamenco’, the setting for Bizet’s Carmen and Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. Discover the delightful city, with its atmospheric Old Quarters of narrow streets, opening on to tree-lined squares. Don’t miss the magnificent cathedral, the Plaza de Toros, Spain’s oldest bullring, the Moorish Alcazar, the ancient Juderia Jewish Quarter and the sweeping, fountain-fronted Plaza de Espana. Stores will be open for last-minute shopping, before you return to the hotel to begin your celebrations.
Day 3Spend Christmas Day celebrating at your hotel, perhaps making use of the indoor swimming pool and spa (payable locally) before you sit down for a three-course Christmas lunch with drinks.
Day 4Board the coach this morning for the day’s unforgettable included excursion to Granada, set majestically beneath the snow-capped Sierra and crowned by the awe-inspiring Alhambra, one of the world’s finest Moorish Palaces. This evening, return to Antequera after a wonderful day.
Day 5A final day perhaps to relax at the hotel, to explore Antequera – a settlement since prehistoric times – or perhaps to join the optional excursion to majestic Cordoba, the third of the great Andalusian cities, with the breathtaking treasure of the Mezquita Mosque/Cathedral its most sparkling jewel.Enjoy a last dinner at the hotel.

Combining hotel transfersWe sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
European Christmas closing timesShops in Europe will generally be closed from early afternoon on Christmas Eve until 27th December.
