Description

This incredible experience starts in the most comfortable way, aboard the fastest train in Spain (reaches a top speed of 300 km/h), highlighting its punctuality, avoiding up to 2 hours of delays and traffic jams of big cities and getting to Toledo in just 30 minutes. Get impressed by the countryside you often wouldn't see if you were driving the highway or flying thousands of miles in the air. In ecological terms, train travel remains overall the most environmentally friendly mode of traveling. After a scenic ride, start the adventure discovering the famous Aqueduct of Segovia, a Roman engineering marvel dating back to the 1st century AD. Behold the well-preserved aqueduct stretches through the heart of the city and is an incredible sight. Continue with a soft hike through La Senda de los Molinos, a magnificent walk that unify landscapes, nature, geology and industrial history of the city of Segovia. The path runs between the neighborhoods of San Lorenzo and San Marcos, with a nice walk along the riverbank that brings us closer to its industrial past. This part of the city is somewhat unknown, but has a natural and historical beauty of great value. Enjoy the coolness under the trees while contemplating the beauty of its autochthonous nature and lush vegetation until arriving at the viewpoint of San Marcos, a privileged place to contemplate the Segovian Alcazar from a unique perspective. After hiking, you’ll visit the Alcázar, perched on a hill overlooking the city, its majestic castle that was once home to the kings of Castile. This fortress has a unique appearance with its turreted towers and is said to have inspired Walt Disney's Cinderella Castle. Explore the interior, including the various rooms, halls, and courtyards. Don't miss the Tower of Juan II, which offers panoramic views of Segovia. Then continue through the charming streets of Segovia's Old Town. Admire the medieval buildings, quaint squares, and picturesque alleys. Walk through the Jewish Quarter and the Gothic Cathedral. Don't miss the Plaza Mayor, the main square, where you can relax at a café and soak in the atmosphere. Before returning back to Madrid, you’ll enjoy free time to explore the city on your own, relax or even taste one of the most traditional dishes of Spanish gastronomy ̈Cochinillo ̈ (suckling pig).
