Toledo: The beautiful imperial city-museum of Toledo “World Heritage City” is located 70km away from Madrid. It is one of the oldest towns in Europe, called “city of the three cultures”, since Christians, Muslims and Jews lived together. Its genuine Spanish buildings include almost all the periods in the history (Arab, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque style). Here lived the great painter El Greco in the XVI century.
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.
