Full description
Take in two of Madrid’s best experiences in one morning. Begin at the statue of Francisco Goya where you’ll meet your expert guide and begin your exploration of the Prado Museum. Before going inside, your guide will set the scene of the storied halls you’re about to enter. Your extensive tour of the museum will span over 20 masterpieces that highlight Spain’s fascinating history. You’ll learn about the characters and events that served as inspiration for these pieces and get a picture of the artists behind each one. Delight in the master strokes of Velazquez, Goya, Bosch and so many more as you wander the Prado’s halls. Next, discover another aspect of Madrid’s history on a stroll through the charming Literary Quarter. Many of Spain’s literary geniuses have tread these very paths. Stop into a century-old tavern to whet your appetite and try one of Madrid’s classic aperitifs. Afterwards, it’s time to step inside the world’s oldest operating restaurant – Sobrino de Botín. Cooking and perfecting the same delicacies since it opened its doors in 1725, eating here is a chance to explore both Madrid’s cuisine and its history. What’s more, before it opens its doors to the hungry lunchtime crowd, you’ll get to take a private tour through its hidden underground tunnels, historic kitchens, and storied dining rooms. Then sit down to a delicious three-course lunch. The star of Botín’s menu is the roast suckling pig, slow roasted in the original ovens from when the restaurant first opened, joined on the plate by seasonal vegetables. Enjoy a specially prepared dessert afterwards along with plenty of Rioja red wine. Take the opportunity to chat with your guide at the table and learn more about the historic setting you’re dining in. By the end of your meal, you’ll have checked two must-visit sites off your list and gained a unique insight into Madrid’s past and present.
