Combo Tour: Toledo & Highlights of Madrid

by Julia Travel - Gray Line Spain Duration 7h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$125

Soak up the multicultural heritage and medieval charms of Toledo, whose well-preserved historic centre has earned a spot on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. See artistic and architectural masterpieces from centuries past and then return to Madrid for a comprehensive tour of the Spanish capital's must-see landmarks.

Meet your guide in central Madrid and grab a comfortable seat on a coach for the scenic, hourlong drive through the countryside south of the city. Arrive in Toledo, the religious heart of medieval Spain, where Jews, Christians and Muslims famously lived in peaceful coexistence for centuries. Wander the maze-like lanes of the old town as you seek out churches, synagogues, museums and mosques in this walled city above the Río Tajo.

Pass through the Moorish Puerta de Bisagra or the crenellated, Mudéjar-era arches of the Puerta del Sol and make your way to the Cathedral of Saint Mary of Toledo. Stand on the other side of the plaza to take in the full majesty of the Gothic façade and its intricate lion sculptures, then continue to the 14th-century Iglesia de Santo Tomé to see celebrated painter El Greco’s richly coloured work The Burial of the Count of Orgaz.

In the afternoon, head back to Madrid, where your guide leads you on an exploration of the city’s major attractions and monuments. Stroll across the Plaza Mayor and snap photos of the statue of Felipe III, the towers of the Casa de la Panadería and the steps leading down to the Cava de San Miguel through the Arco de Cuchilleros before parting ways with your guide.
