Description

Your Madrid gourmet tapas adventure begins in front of the Opera House, in the oldest part of the city. After setting the scene, your expert local guide will lead you towards one of the most famous chocolaterias in town to enjoy a deliciously sweet breakfast of hot chocolate and churros! Afterwards, take a stroll around the city center, as your guide shows you some key landmarks and regales you with historic tales about the Spanish monarchy and the people of Madrid over the centuries.  Your second stop will be the first ever gourmet tapas market in Spain, Mercado de San Miguel, built in 1916. Taste a few different tapas dishes as you hear about Spanish culinary culture, food traditions and the introduction of gourmet markets to the foodie shopping scene.  Next, head to Madrid’s only remaining cluster convent to buy homemade sweets, a proud tradition of Spain. After your visit to the convent, make your way to the neighbourhood of La Latina to discover hidden historical corners and heritage inns from the 18th century.  The third stop will be the local grocery market of La Latina, where an organic olive oil and wine tasting awaits. Meet the owner who is focused on helping small producers from all over Spain to promote their wines and olive oils. Spanish agriculture is moving more towards organic production now, respecting the land and promoting high-quality products. This tasting will help you better understand this organic revolution! After the tasting, walk through the biggest flea market in Spain, El Rastro. Your guide will give you the lowdown on this popular market. Next on the foodie agenda is the multi-cultural Lavapies neighborhood, home to the original born-and-raised Madrileños, a common name for the people of Madrid. This area has now transformed into an exciting and tasty fusion of world cultures. African restaurants rub shoulders with Asian shops and Indian cafés. Along the way, explore an old Inquisition prison and discover its stories.  Your gourmet tapas tour of Madrid will end in Barrio de las letras, a very bohemian and chic neighborhood in the heart of Madrid. Stop at the market of Anton Martin where you will taste organic cava paired with more delicious gourmet tapas dishes. Head into the heart of this charming neighborhood where your guide will be happy to help you get back to your accommodation, or give you more tips on what else to see, do and eat in marvellous Madrid!
