  • Description: The colour and spectacle of Spain bursts across this fun family adventure – from the Kick-Off Party in Madrid to your Farewell Dinner in Barcelona. It's Insider moments like… stirring a pan full of steaming paella in the very city it was invented – as a Valencian chef shows how it's cooked and the children add in fresh local ingredients. Sitting down for dinner, you all taste your creation together. Seville adds more Spanish flavour as you dance the flamenco, learning the moves from a local dancer. And in Barcelona it's felt in our visit inside Camp Nou, Europe's largest football stadium, where you feel the passion the country, and continent, has for the sport.
