Full description

Discover the historic sites and monuments in Avila and Segovia on a guided day trip from Madrid. Admire the exterior of the Ávila Walls and see the Roman Aqueduct. Begin in downtown Madrid and travel to the cities of Avila and Segovia by comfortable coach.

See the exterior of the Ávila Walls that surround the city that was completed in just 10 years, between the 11th and 14th centuries. Then, visit the interior of the Basilica of San Vicente known as The Basilica of the Holy Brothers Martyrs, Vicente, Sabina, and Cristeta.

Pass through the Plaza Mayor and the Cathedral to reach the Church-convent of Santa Teresa and explore the interior of its Church. Once the visit to Ávila is finished, enjoy free time to have a wine, a soft drink, and an aperitif and to have lunch or continue visiting the city.

Go to the city of Segovia and visit the Roman Aqueduct, which is the highest and best-preserved. Pass through the Casa de los Picos, Plaza de Juan Bravo, and Plaza Mayor where you'll find the Cathedral, dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption and of San Frutos.

Finish at El Alcázar de Segovia, a medieval fortress, located on a rocky crag on the confluence of two rivers near the Sierra de Guadarrama, it is one of the most distinctive castles-palaces in Spain by virtue of its shape, like the prow of a ship.

What an excellent tour! A perfect combination of walking, history and sightseeing. The guides were friendly and informative. I loved having a receiver and headphones that allowed us to hear our guide 100% of the time no matter where we were in the group. I would definitely recommend this tour and this company. Enjoy!

EXCELLENT, Francisco was an exceptional guide, he managed the group in a didactic way and clearly explaining the history and places we passed through, it is a shame not to have a tour with more hours to see more things, I never did an excursion with radios and I find it phenomenal, from now on I will always ask first. The very comfortable coach that leaves from the center of Madrid.
