Southern Europe

Expat Explore tours of Southern Europe include Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece. This region of Europe is known for beautiful weather, fantastic beaches, historic architecture, and of course delicious cuisine - try tapas in Spain, seafood in Portugal, pizza in Italy and fresh seasonal produce in Greece.

The Highlights of Spain and Portugal is a brand new Expat Explore tour that covers all the highlights of the Iberian Peninsula, with free time to explore the fascinating culture and history at your own pace. There is also an optional Barcelona bolt-on so you can experience the capital of the Catalan region and it’s culture that is unique to the rest of Spain.

Our tours of Italy - the Taste of Italy 8-day and Italian Delights 12-day - visit the must-see destinations of this incredible country. From the historic influence of Ancient Rome that is spread throughout the capital, to the UNESCO World Heritage Site's of Venice, Pisa and Florence, you will be knocked back by the incredible sights you will see on an Expat Explore Italy tour.

We also offer one-way itineraries that start or finish in Rome and Venice, so that you can combine an Expat Explore tour with your own travelling.
