Well worth a visit. We saw around 30 rooms on a small group tour. The palace offers a peek into head of state event staging as well as history of Spain’s Royal Family. Quite entertaining for a couple hours.
We took the audio self-guided tour and enjoyed it immensely. The furnishings are, of course, lavish and beautiful. Many gorgeous works of art. We were able to enjoy the palace at our own pace, and spent about 2.5 hours. Highly recommend.
Most informative and engaging tour that I have taken and we didn’t even have a live guide! The Samsung guided device for the tour was well organized and gave a lot of useful information. I never felt bored. It was definitely worth the price and...More
Spend some time walking around the area, enjoying the scenic views of the countryside behind the castle, and the cozy little parks around here. I feel like these perks could be overlooked, but certainly worth slowing down and enjoying as well.
Just a marvelous place to visit and go through all the beautiful rooms. Allow about 2 hours. One of the best palaces in Europe. Painted ceilings, lovely pictures and artifacts and very well presented with English and Spanish explanations. The history of Spain through the...More
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
I purchased all tickets via TripAdvisor.. Not sure if there is one ticket for all unless there is an overall your of the city that would cover all the spots. I travel on my own to see what I had I on list.. Hope this helps
