    Itinerary

    Guests will be picked up in Madrid in the morning. The scheduled departure time is 8:45am, and guests are asked to please arrive at least ten minutes early. We will proceed just north of the Spanish capital to El Escorial, the historic royal palace of the Spanish monarchy. We will tour this massive complex, from its monastery and basilica to the Pantheon of the royal family. Afterward, we will take a short drive to the Valley of the Fallen, nestled in the mountains of Guadarrama, a memorial for those who died during the Spanish Civil War. Once we are done here, we will continue on our journey to Toledo, where we will first take a panoramic walking tour, exploring the Cathedral, the Jewish Quarter, the Church of Santo Tome which houses a famous painting by El Greco, the city's Alcazar, the Synagogue of El Transito, and much more. Our stops after this tour will also include a visit to the Museo Victorio Macho and a factory that makes the handcrafts typically associated with Toledo. At the end of the day, guests will be returned to Madrid and this tour will end.
