An extensive sightseeing tour, featuring most of the places of interest in this versatile capital city. Various architectural styles bend into a harmonious whole-medieval, renaissance, baroque, neo-classic, romantic and modern.

We start with a panoramic tour through the main neighborhoods and highlights of Madrid: Salamanca, Plaza de Castilla, Templo de Debod, the Spanish “Broadway “- Gran Vía -, Retiro Park, Prado Museum (and Thyssen and Reina Sofia), and Calle Alcalá. There will be a photo stop at Las Ventas, the biggest bullfighting ring in Madrid and third in the world.

Following to the panoramic tour will take place a walking tour through the main historic neighborhoods of Madrid, the Hapsburg area with the Royal Palace, the Cathedral, Calle Mayor and Plaza Mayor, which meets the southwest corner of Puerta del Sol.

The tour will pass Mercado de San Miguel (c. 1913). About a block down on the same side is Madrid’s oldest square, Plaza de la Villa.

We will then follow to the Restaurant “La TAURINA”, where you will enjoy the typical Spanish gastronomy.

After dinner, we will return to the hotel.
