Now autumn’s arrived we’ve cosied up next to a warm fire and focused more on our greatest love – crafts (sorry, significant other). But thoughts of summer holidays and sun haven’t totally escaped our minds.
Luckily, Inntravel are offering you the chance to win a six-night rail holiday through Spain in partnership with our sister mag, In The Moment. You might not have to surrender to autumn after all.
Inntravel’s self-guided tour will take you through the heart of Spain by rail. The holiday for two – part of their SlowMotion journeys – will feature stunning art and architecture, plus delicious food and drink. You’ll enjoy an unhurried journey, with plenty of time to absorb the local life, people and hospitality around you. UK to Madrid flights are included, as well as accommodation for two nights in Segovia, Salamaca and Madrid. Train journeys between the cities are part of the package too. Self-guided walking tours, specially created by Inntravel, are highlights of the holiday, taking in major sights and hidden corners.
Start in Segovia…
You’ll begin your journey with a two-night stay at a historic town house hotel in Segovia, a cultural gem on the Iberian Peninsula. Wander through the back streets of the medieval city, cast your gaze over soaring spires and take in the impressive Roman aqueduct. Visit the ornate Alcázar to discover where the kingdoms of Aragon and Castile came together, to create Spain itself.
… journey to Salamanca
Next, you’ll head westwards to Salamanca, resting in the historic quarter’s Hotel Rector for two nights. Admire the university town’s ornate religious and secular buildings, markers of the city’s standing as a centre of learning. Admire the city skyline from the top of its great bell towers, before taking a break for tapas in the Baroque central square.
… and Spain’s capital Madrid
End the journey on a high, with a two-night stay in Madrid, the country’s capital since the Golden Age. Discover many of Spain’s art treasures, extraordinary food, and eclectic quirky neighborhoods. After dark, find your way to intricately tiled tapas bars, try traditional chocolate con churros, or slow down and enjoy the atmosphere of the city.
