Bienvenidos! Time to start exploring Madrid. Choose a local restaurante, an authentic tapas bar near your hotel, or visit one of Madrid’s many world-class museums. Your tour director is available in the early evening to give you expert suggestions on the best ways to enjoy the city.
This morning, feel free to join our optional walking tour of the city centre with a local guide-an insightful introduction to local history and culture, followed by a visit of the Prado Museum. Go off the beaten path with a visit to one of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites surrounding Madrid: San Lorenzo del Escorial, Alcala de Henares, Aranjuez, or the beautiful Hayedo de Montejo area.
Discover Segovia with its fairy tale fortress, an inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle, or see the Cathedral and soaring Roman aqueduct. In Avila, one of the best preserved medieval bastions, we’ll provide you with the tickets to walk on the Avila city walls allowing you to see the city centre from above, a rare experience in many European cities. After arriving in Salamanca, spend the evening at leisure discovering the city. You might choose to have an intimate evening out to dine on Salamanca specialties.
If you are a foodie, be sure to book in advance the exclusive optional cooking class in a real castle, as space is limited. If you prefer, explore Salamanca’s city centre-a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Plaza Mayor-one of Spain’s most beautiful squares, particularly when illuminated at night.
Valladolid is a provincial city with a lively character, thanks in part to the student population of the local university. This is the gateway to the Ribera del Duero wine-growing region, so join the optional creative wine tasting downtown.
Tour the city of Burgos at your own pace-from its majestic gothic cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the banks of the beautiful Duoro River. Visit the archaeological site of Atapuerca, UNESCO World Heritage Site, combined with the Museum of Human Evolution, for a fascinating journey through science and anthropology.
On the way to Madrid, stop at the scenic Castillo de Penafiel to visit the wine museum. Once you reach Madrid, the Tour Director will help you choose from the city’s many restaurants and bars to celebrate your trip. You can also visit the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, attend a flamenco dance performance, or take a romantic stroll to savour your last night in Spain.
