Overview
Visit the first tapas market in the country and learn all about the importance of Spanish market culture

Get an introduction to the traditions of the Spanish aperitivo with a traditional vermouth and olive tasting. Taste traditional recipes with a modern twist in a tiny gourmet tapas bar owned by two dedicated sommeliers. Discover the oldest parts of Madrid and stop at some of our favourite heritage taverns to try the house dish in each of them, including the best potato croquettes in the entire city! Stroll around the trendy neighbourhood of La Latina and soak up the historic vibes and breathtaking architecture of the old city centre too. Numbers are limited to 12 on this small-group tour, ensuring personalised attention from the guide.
Highlights
  • Discover the history and culture of Madrid’s Literary Quarter and Lavapiés
  • Small-group size for personalized recommendations and intimate experience
  • Sample five traditional tapas and drinks throughout the city
  • Visit a local market for insight into traditional ingredients and recipes
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at Plaza de la Villa and set off to explore the city’s best dining spots. First, visit a local market and peruse the fresh produce, meats, and cheese while your guide explains traditional recipes, before sampling the fresh food yourself. Next, visit a tavern and enjoy a glass of wine or aperitif as you taste another example of Spanish cuisine. Then, head into the town’s Literary Quarter to learn about Madrid’s resident writers throughout history, including Miguel de Cervantes, before popping into a nearby tapas bar for another morsel. Afterward, make your way to a traditional restaurant for more helpings of Andalucian fare, along with soft drinks or wine, before exploring the historic Lavapiés neighborhood. Wander past international eateries on your way to one of Madrid’s oldest taverns for a final tasting plate. Conclude your tour on the Puerta del Sol.
