    Itinerary

    Travel to Toledo from Madrid in a comfortable bus and as you reach this well-preserved historical city with no modern buildings, take in the stunning panoramic views of the city perched on rocks and protected by a natural moat and man-made fortifications.

    In Toledo, walk through the labyrinthine lanes accompanied by a local expert guide and see its major attractions. Known as the ‘City of Three Cultures’, for centuries Toledo has witnessed peaceful co-existence of Christians, Jews and Muslims and the examples of this multi-cultural history are aplenty. As you walk through the dark alleyways, don’t be surprised to bump into heavily decorated, massive historical cathedral, mosques, synagogues and more!

    During you walking tour, your guide will narrate interesting legends and Toledo’s tolerant cultural mix. Walk past the famous Cathedral of Toledo, Church of Santo Tomé and Monastery of San Juan de Los Reyes.

    El Greco fans can finally admire the artist’s finest and the most-loved work, The Burial of the Count of Orgaz with a visit to the oddly simple Church of Santo Tomé. Standing in front of the painting, imagine attending the burial of the noble count and see the celestial events unfolding through El Greco’s brushstrokes.

    At the end of your Toledo excursion, you will return back to Madrid.
