Royal Palace: Former Residence of the Spanish Royal Family. It was built in the XVIII C. and forms one of the most beautiful palatial complexes of Europe with the Plaza de Oriente, the Sabatini Gardens and the Campo del Moro. Inside its beautiful porcelains, tapestries, fornitures, armours and paintings can be admired.
Sightseeing tour: Madrid shows the onlooker multiple faces that history has left behind, such as its medieval origins as an Arab-fortress characterized by its ancient buildings and the smell of the taverns. We’ll drive through the courtesan district of the Hapsburgs characterised by Phillip II and his Renaissance and Baroque style buildings like those in the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Villa. We will visit the Madrid of the Bourbons and the complex town planning schemes of Charles III, the Royal Palace, Cibeles and Neptuno Fountains and the Puerta de Alcalá. We will admire the works of José Bonaparte in the XIX century, such as the elegant Plaza de Oriente and The Prado Museum. We will discover contemporary Madrid with avenues such as Gran Vía, Castellana, the district of Salamanca, Plaza de Castilla, Parque del Oeste, University Campus, commercial and financial zones of Modern Madrid, the emblematic Las Ventas Bullring and the Santiago Bernabéu Football Stadium. During the tour, we will stop at the famous Hard Rock Café, where you will be offered a drink.
