We will begin with a city sightseeing tour of Madrid with the city's best known sights and will continue with the visit of the Royal Palace. This tour will take you to explore the various aspects of the city, along with your official guide.

  • Sightseeing Tour:

Madrid shows the multiple contrasts inherited through history. You will find out about the medieval origins of the city, like the Arabic fortress, at the Barrio de la Morería, characterized by the antiquity of its buildings and the taste of its typical restaurants. You will cover the Hapsburg Madrid of Felipe II, with its Renaissance and Baroque buildings walking and taking pictures on Calle Mayor, Plaza Mayor, Plaza de la Villa. Then, you will also see the Bourbon Madrid and the urban layout made by Carlos III, the Royal Palace, the Cibeles Fountain, Neptune Fountain and the Puerta de Alcalá. You'll visit the works from the kingdom of Joseph Bonaparte from the 19th century, like the Prado Museum. We will get to know contemporary Madrid on the streets of Gran Vía, Paseo de la Castellana, Barrio Salamanca, Plaza de Castilla and Parque del Oeste, as well as the commercial and financial areas of Modern Madrid, like the emblematic Ventas Bullring or Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. During this tour, we will stop at the famous Hard Rock Café, where you will enjoy a free drink.

  • Royal Palace:

The Royal Palace was built in the XVIII century upon the ancient Baroque Italian style fortress of the Habsburg. It is one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces in Europe and a symbol of the permanence and consolidation of Madrid as the capital of the Kingdom. The Palace was the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1765 to 1931. To date, the most stunning receptions of the Spanish Crown are celebrated here: audiences, dinner parties, signature of agreements and the traditional ceremony of presentation of Credential Letters from foreign ambassadors to His Majesty the King.

The tour ends at the Royal Palace.
