Madrid Highlights and Skip the Line Guided tour Royal Palace

Check in at our office and join us on the first part of the tour, 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. Remember to bring your camera or Smartphone! 

Leave Plaza de Oriente and head to the magnificent
Puerta de Toledo. Did you know its construction dates back from 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 the Old
Madrid arriving into the 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
through Paseo de la Castellana street and Colon square.

But no trip to
Madrid would be completed without a visit to the Royal Palace. Thus, a local
guide will pick you up from our office for a guided visit to the same.

Skip the lines and dive right into the history
of this beautiful palace. Did you know its size doubles the one of Buckingham
Palace? Build in an Italian baroque style, it was the former residence of the
Spanish Monarchy from 1766 to 1931. Nowadays, it still is a great example of
the establishment of Madrid as the capital of the kingdom.

Today, it holds the most important receptions of
the Spanish Crown. Know the audiences, dinner parties and signature of
agreements celebrated through the years. Walk around the Armory Square. Marvel
at the beautiful tapestries and elegant furniture. Follow your guide through
the Grand Staircase, the Throne Room and the Banqueting Hall, among others.

Once your guided visit finishes, you can stay
inside the Palace and go to the Royal Armory on your own.
