20 new tours, each six or 13 days in duration, will take guests on a journey uncovering the continent’s incredible cuisine, history, landscapes and culture.

 

On sale now, small coach tour operator Rabbie’s has unveiled a new series of Europe tours – exploring the most beautiful sites across Italy, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland – which will hit the road from May next year.

20 new tours, each six or 13 days in duration, will take guests on a journey uncovering the continent’s incredible cuisine, history, landscapes and culture. Similar to the company’s popular UK trips, guests on Rabbie’s European tours will travel in luxurious mini-coaches, with a maximum group size of just 16. The small size of Rabbie’s coaches allows the tours to access off-the-beaten-track and less-touristed destinations that larger operators are unable to reach.

Each trip is hosted by one of Rabbie’s expert guides, offering guests insider knowledge on everything there is to know about the places visited – including where to find the best spot for lunch!

The six-day South of Spain & the Treasures of Andalucía tour travels from Madrid to Lisbon, taking in Spain’s former capital Toledo, Córdoba, Granada including Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada National Park, dramatic Ronda, Seville and the charming Algarve town of Tavira en route. Visit a Spanish olive oil production site for a lesson in olive oil-making while soaking in the endless olive grove views. Be entranced by the ornamentation of the Alhambra Palace before delving into the rugged landscapes of the Cumbres Verdes mountains on the forefront of the Sierra Nevada. Stroll the city walls and picturesque plazas of cliff-top Ronda and join a half-day tour to Jerez de la Frontera – the heartland of sherry and Spanish brandy. Finally, cross the Portuguese border with a stop at Tavira in the Algarve – a town on the River Gilão that exudes an irresistible charm. 

Alternatively, the 13-day Vistas of Switzerland & Italy tour travels from Milan, visiting places of exquisite beauty like Lake Como, Interlaken, Zermatt, Cinque Terre, Pisa, and Florence, before arriving in Rome. Explore Italy’s stunning lake region while admiring its mountainous vistas and colourful villas on a boat trip across Lake Como to Lenno. Head deep into the Alps for sky-touching mountain views and take the winding roads to Simplon Pass – a key historical route. Discover the most admired peak in all of Europe – the Matterhorn – before travelling by train to car-free Zermatt. Back on the coach, travel south, and sample Parma ham and Parmesan cheese in Parma, the place of their origin. Architectural wonders aren’t so hard to find in Northern Italy, a certain leaning structure begs for your attention in Pisa and Lucca’s completely preserved city walls are the perfect warm up to the breath-taking wonders of Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. Sample one of Italy’s most famous exports in the famous Chianti wine region, before arriving in Montepulciano, your hilltop home for two nights in rural Tuscany. Expect delights of the culinary and aesthetic variety in this part of Italy, before travelling further south to Rome.
