Explore the fortress city of Toledo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on this guided day tour from Madrid. This famous and iconic city is one of the most popular destinations in Spain, and rightly so. Famous for its bladed weapons, for being the seat of power of Charles V, and for being the final residence of the great Spanish master of the late Renaissance, El Greco, Toledo offers a walk down the lanes of history and art at nearly every corner.
Start early in the morning from Madrid and enjoy comfortable transportation to Toledo, where your tour will begin. With an expert bilingual guide accompanying you and providing you with helpful commentary, you will visit every essential and iconic attraction of the city, such as the Jewish quarter, the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca, and the Church of Santo Tomé, where you can see the famous painting “The Burial of Count Orgaz” by El Greco, and much more. In all, you will be visiting 7 of the most important monuments and districts with fast track entry, 3 with the guide and 4 by yourself. Optionally, you can choose to also visit the Toledo Cathedral with the guide.
After the guided section of the tour, there will be some free time for you to explore the rest of the city, or revisit the places you like. Alternatively, you could sit back and enjoy a beer and a relaxed lunch, and your guide will be happy to point out the best places around for just that. Ideal for art and history lovers, this tour of Toledo will take you through the Muslim, Jewish and Christian neighbourhoods for a peek into the cultural heritage of this fortress city.
