Full description
After departing from the convenient meeting point in Madrid, the first stop of the day will be at the city of Ávila, one of the best-preserved fortifications in Spain. Follow your guide on a walking tour of the Old Town to discover the impressive history of this city.  

See Romanesque-style churches, Gothic palaces, and a fortified cathedral of the Middle Ages. Visit the Walls of Ávila and imagine the stories they have seen through the centuries. Marvel at the fortification and towers, which have granted the city a UNESCO World Heritage Site status. You will also have free time to explore before meeting your guide again at the designated time to continue the tour to Segovia.  

Next, for those who decided to include the option when booking, it is time to relish a wonderful gastronomic lunch. Those who did not add the option will have 1.5 hours of free time to grab something to eat at their leisure. Take advantage of this time and see the most important Roman civil construction in the Peninsula, the Aqueduct of Segovia.

Meet your guide again in front of the Segovia Cathedra for an exterior visit of the building. Walk through the old Jewish quarter of the city following your guide towards the Alcázar of Segovia, the last stop before returning to Madrid. Here you’ll enjoy a guided visit of the site and marvel at the spectacular fortification that has served as inspiration for some Walt Disney films.
