1. Madrid: Habsburg and Palace Tour with Language Options
Start your 2-hour hour walking tour soaking up the city and the Habsburg dynasty at the world-famous Puerta del Sol, a favorite meeting point of the Madrileño natives of Madrid. Take a selfie right at Kilometer Zero, the starting point for all of Spain's roads, and admire the lively plaza where people gather to welcome the New Year. Have a sweet start with a stop at Chocolatería San Ginés to feast on some churros and chocolate to fill up your energy. Then, walk through Madrid's historic center passing through the picturesque Plaza Mayor. See the city's imperial buildings and the legacy of Charles I. Marvel at how Philip II brought splendor to Madrid, and discover the grandeur of the Plaza de Oriente. Next, discover the Cathedral of Almudena and, finally, arrive at astonishing Royal Palace of Madrid. Here you’ll skip the line with a fast-track ticket and explore this amazing piece of architecture with a smart video guide. Spread over 199,000 square meters and with more than 3,000 rooms, the Royal Palace of Madrid is the largest palace in Europe — two times the size of Buckingham Palace in London. Take time to explore at your own pace for as long as you wish before closing time.
