What to expect

This one-day tour takes you to the best cultural attractions in Madrid, the Prado Museum and the Royal Palace.

In the morning you will visit the National Museum of Art. At the Prado Museum, you will learn about the history of the museum as you walk around admiring its works of art. Explore the halls and galleries with your guide and learn all the secrets about the artists and their work.

In the afternoon, visit one of the most important royal palaces in Europe, the Royal Palace of Madrid, which used to be the residence of the Spanish Royal Family. Today, it is used exclusively for receptions, ceremonies and official events. The Royal Palace is also called Palacio de Oriente, due to its proximity to the Plaza de Oriente, which is on the eastern (orient) side of the palace. Our visit includes a tour of the main rooms of the Royal Palace, such as the Arms Square, the Throne Room, the Gala Banquet Hall or the Royal Chapel.

Enjoy these two important buildings in Madrid and learn about the city’s history with our local guide.

The visit also includes a tour of the following areas:

  • Official Lounges: Grandiose, well preserved and stylish, each room has its own personality.
  • Royal Armouries: Armor, shields, and weapons of all kinds are part of this collection, one of the most important in the world.
  • Royal Pharmacy: Hundreds of bottles of different shapes and sizes that take us on a trip back in time.

(Please note: the Royal Palace has the right to close due to an official event.)
