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.

It was a great day filled to the brim with a fantastic guide Fernando. He gave that little extra personal touch along the way and above all has a real passion for his country which transpired all along the way. Super pleased with this tour which was also really good value for money.

Avila was more impressive than I thought, such as buildings. I thought that the last run where I stopped by for lunch would be full of people, but it only came with a tortilla, a piece of bread, and a drink, so I ordered an additional steak and onion soup, but it came out relatively quickly. Here we come. In Segovia, it was quite a walk to the last aqueduct, but the aqueduct was so splendid that my fatigue was blown away.

The tour was with Fun & Tickets and it was well organised and our tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. We did not go to some of the extra excursions (like the Segovia cathedral) but our tour guide explained clearly to us where to meet us afterwards, which I find reassuring. I would recommend this tour with Fun & Ticket.
