Madrid is packed with art, architecture and culture and on this tour, you’ll experience the best of it with an expert local guide. Your day starts when you skip the line to the Royal Palace. Your guide will tell you how the discovery of the Americas created this amazing building and funded the powerful dynasties that once lived here. On your guided visit, you'll see the palace's chapel, the king and queen's dressing rooms, and the grand halls that make up the world's largest in-use royal palace. Leaving the palace, you’ll walk the medieval streets of central Madrid, stopping at famous landmarks like the Plaza Mayor and the Puerta del Sol as your guide tells your story of how the city went from an outpost of a crumbling Moorish empire to the preeminent Catholic power in Europe. Next, you’ll stop for coffee and churros with chocolate. After this mid-morning snack, you’ll be ready to continue exploring the streets of Madrid as you head towards the Prado art museum, home to one of the greatest collections of European art in the world. You’ll enter with skip-the-line tickets and enjoy a full tour of the museum’s highlights, including works by Caravaggio, Goya, Velazquez, El Greco, Bosch, Tintoretto and more. Your guide will tell you the stories behind the art and help you understand what makes each piece so celebrated. You can choose to either spend more time enjoying the art or get recommendations for what to see, do and eat from your guide before heading off.
