May 7–27, 2016
Please join us for the ERA’s 13th international tour!
Tramways, Metros and Tourism in Spain will cover the two major Spanish cities and many other cities with tram, light rail and metro operations in an extensive 21-day program you won’t want to miss. The tour will include first-class travel on Spain’s high speed and regional trains, plus chartered bus and air travel where needed in order to visit many historic and modern tram, metro and electric railway operations throughout the country. There will be general sightseeing opportunities provided to cover many of Spain’s beautiful and historic places.
During 21 days of travel we will cover many major and provincial cities. The tour will begin in Barcelona on Saturday, May 7 as we settle into our luxury hotel, with local sightseeing and a visit to the famous Blue Tram and Mount Tibidabo Funicular the next day followed by our welcome dinner. The last tour activity will be our farewell dinner after a day in Madrid on Thursday, May 26, with an overnight stay to follow and departure from Spain on Friday, May 27. All breakfasts will be provided and three group lunches plus seven group dinners will also be included.
We will stay five nights in Barcelona, two nights in Bilbao, three nights in Seville, three nights in Valencia, two nights in Palma de Majorca and five nights in Madrid. Three- or four-star hotels will be our homes during the tour. Chartered buses and coach transfers will be utilized as much as possible to assist in handling baggage between cities.
