Are you in Madrid and want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of its urban sprawl? Venture beyond the cityscape and go on a full day tour to see the legendary Spanish cities of Toledo and Segovia. The city of Toledo is often referred to as the Second Rome due its architecture and for being the source of the Roman Army’s swords because of its top grade steel. During your Toledo visit, you’ll be brought to the top of Mirador del Valle, an overlook that’ll give you a breathtaking panoramic view of the city that will stick with you forever. Once you’re done marveling at the city from afar, you’ll be brought into the city proper, and you’ll begin the tour at Puente de San Martin, a medieval bridge that goes across the Tagus River. From there, you’ll explore the city’s narrow streets, squares, and gardens. You'll also visit sacred spaces such as the Cathedral of Toledo and the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes. After a long walk around the city, you’ll take a break at Plaza de Zocodover, where you can have lunch and roam around. As soon as your free time is over, you’ll be taken to the grand city of Segovia where you’ll be able to admire numerous, iconic edifices such as: 1) the Alcazar, a fortress that’s shaped like a ship; 2) the aqueducts, which is considered as the most important symbol of the city; 3) the gothic cathedral, which was built to honor the Virgin Mary. After seeing the city’s most important sites, you’ll be given some free time to roam around, and once that’s over, you’ll be taken back to Madrid. If you’re interested in architecture and construction, this tour is a must because a lot of what you’ll see are architectural masterpieces, and you’ll learn all about them from an English-speaking guide.
