Explore the historic center (Centro) of Madrid by Segway on a 2-hour guided tour, and see monuments from the city’s Hapsburg past, including royal palaces and public squares. Meet your guide by the monument to Cervantes in Plaza de España. Then, following a short training session on how to operate the self-balancing vehicles, glide gently down narrow streets and wide boulevards to sights such as the Palacio Real (Royal Palace), the vast official residence of the Spanish Royal Family. Learn the history and culture of the city as you enter public spaces, such as Plaza Mayor. Built during the reign of Philip III (1598–1621), the huge rectangular square is surrounded by 3-story residential buildings with 237 balconies facing the plaza. Experience everyday life in the city at the Mercado de San Miguel food market. Constructed in 1916, the market is the finest example of cast-iron architecture in Madrid. See some of the local and regional produce on display at the market’s 33 stalls. Learn more about the history of Spain along the way, and get tips on what to do during your stay in Madrid.
