Segovia and Avila—roughly a 1-hour drive apart—are two of the most visited cities in Spain, seducing travelers with historic cathedrals, Roman aqueducts, and dreamy palace-fortresses. See both cities in one day, hearing fascinating commentary about each spot, without having to drive or plan an itinerary on this guided tour from Madrid. Plus, you can can upgrade for a Segovian lunch with roast suckling pig.
What to Expect
Head to San Nicolas Street in central Madrid to board your air-conditioned coach to Avila. Your guide will tell you the history of the pilgrimage site, which is also the birthplace of the Spanish mystic, Saint Teresa. At the Four Posts (Cuatro Postes), see one of best-preserved medieval bastions in Spain.
Visit the city walls, towers, churches, and the tomb of a martyred saint, including alabaster Avila Cathedral and the Basilica of St. Vincent. Then reboard for the trip to Segovia’s city center, where you’ll see a two-tiered Roman aqueduct, one of the best-preserved ancient monuments in Spain.
Continue to UNESCO-listed Alcazar, an 11-century fortress-palace. After a guided tour, head to Segovia Cathedral.
Take some free time for lunch (at your own expense) or upgrade for either a simple meal or Segovian feast. Then, return to Madrid where you’re dropped off at the original departure point.

Well Organised

From pick up to drop off the only things that affected schedules were late tourists coming back to the bus. With a full bus our tour guide was extremely patient waiting up to 10 minutes for latecomers more than once. If you are holding up...More
