What to expect

With this combo you will have the opportunity to enjoy two exceptional tours of Madrid in only one day.

In the morning you will visit the medieval town of Toledo - an old city full of history - and in the afternoon, after a break for lunch in Madrid, you will head to the Monastery of El Escorial, a former home of the Royal Spanish family and the basilica that houses the tombs of former Spanish kings.

The city of Toledo was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. This tour begins with a walk to the Alcázar and the cathedral, so you can admire them from the outside. You will visit the Santo Tomé Church, which houses valuable sculptures. Then, get to know the Jewish Quarter, characterized by its tangled and steep streets.

You will also have the chance to see the Sinagoga de Santa María la Blanca from inside, the Mirador del Valle and the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes (this monastery from the outside).

Around 1.00pm, you will return to Madrid so you will have some free time next to Las Ventas square to have lunch on your own before departing to El Escorial, where you’ll visit one of the old residences of the Royal Spanish Family, the basilica and the monastery, founded by monks of St. Jerome’s Order, currently occuppied by friars of St. Augustine’s Order.

This monastery is one of the most curious renaissance buildings in Spain and overall of Europe. Besides, you’ll get to visit the gardens of the friars, ultimate proof of the concept of gardening that King Phillip II had, which was finding visual beauty as well as allowing the cultivation of vegetables and fruits.

You will be back in Madrid around 7.00pm.
