Our guide to Madrid Highlights and Toledo Half Day Tour

Dive into a fascinating mix of cultures in Toledo. Walk through its Old Town and see the famous painting by el Greco, The Burial of the Count of Orgaz. Admire one of the most important Gothic Cathedrals in Spain. Did you know Toledo was once Spain’s capital?

Join, a one-hour walking tour through the streets of the historic city center of Madrid. Discover emblematic places you cannot miss! Stroll around Plaza de la Villa, the famous Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, and Plaza de Oriente. Then board one of our air-conditioned buses for a ride through the city.

Leave Plaza de Oriente and head to the magnificent Puerta de Toledo. Did you know its construction dates back to the Napoleonic era? See the oldest bridge in Madrid and drive next to the Manzanares River, from where you will have great views of the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral. Pass by Mayor Street, Puerta del Sol Square, and the Las Cortes quarter on your way to the Paseo del Prado. Admire the architecture of Old Madrid arriving into Las Letras Quarter.

Drive by Cibeles Fountain, where Real Madrid fans celebrate the team victories. Do not miss Puerta de Alcalá, the most famous of the five ancient gates into the city. The last sights you will see on the tour are the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, Paseo de la Castellana, and Colon Square.

Leave the city in the early afternoon towards Toledo aboard one of our comfortable air-conditioned coaches. Relax and enjoy the scenery on the way to the city. Follow your local guide on a walking tour of the Historic City of Toledo, a World Heritage City since 1986. Once Spain’s capital, it is a perfect mix of Arab, Jewish, and Christian cultures.

Learn about its fantastic heritage and see how the coexistence of cultures through the centuries influenced its current architectural style. Stroll amid the courtyard cloisters and royal coats of arms at the San Juan de los Reyes Monastery. Admire the building sponsored by the Catholic Monarchs to become a royal mausoleum.

Right after the visit, we will walk to the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca. Originally built as a synagogue, it was expropriated and became a Church only 211 years after it opened its doors. Today, it is a fantastic museum of Mudejar (Arabic) style that you will visit. Admire the world-famous painting of el Greco – The Burial of the Count of Orgaz – at the Church of Santo Tomé. Did you know El Greco himself lived in this beautiful city?

The walking tour will continue until you reach the Cathedral, considered one of the most important Gothic Cathedrals in Spain. You will see it from the outside before the guided tour finishes. Then, you will have free time to explore Toledo on your own before returning to Madrid.
