Enjoy a Guided Tour of the Royal Palace
The Royal Palace of Madrid is the official residence of the royal family of Spain. A tour of the Royal Palace is an opportunity to witness the opulence and splendour in which royalty live their lives. The tour will also include visiting the exhibits that include pieces from the royal art collection, and other collections of significant artistic and historic importance, including watches, furniture, and the world’s only Stradivarius string quintet. Make sure that you admire the views of Madrid from this exquisite vantage point before you conclude your visit. Your tour of the Royal Palace should take about 90 minutes, after which you will have plenty of time to wander, shop or grab a bite to eat. Then you will have plenty of time to make your way to the Prado Museum meeting point for the second tour.
Tour the Famed Prado Museum
Your experience starts off with a walk down the beautiful Paseo del Prado, a beautiful avenue filled with trees and ornate fountains that were given to the capital by King and mayor, Carlos III. The avenue leads to the Prado Museum, and from there you will be diving deep into the cultural and artistic history of Europe by touring through the collection of artwork that is housed in the Museum. Your guide will take you through the museum and highlighting the most famous pieces while providing you with the history of the museum and its development. You're free to roam about the museum on your own, after which your experience will end, with you having had your fill of the exceptional art and architecture that Madrid is famous for!
