Madrid to Segovia Day Trip

Tour Description

This Madrid to Segovia day trip will take you on a scenic journey through the lovely region of Castille Leon, to the enchanting city of Segovia.  Most famous for it´s 2000 year old Roman Aqueduct, this city has so much more to revel in and see. Declared a World Heritage city, Segovia, was once a very royal town and in fact, where  Queen Isabel was crowned once upon a time. The Alcazar Castle alone will leave you in awe as you ponder the views from the highest tower where the Knights once kept watch.  Our local guide will explain all you need to know on your visit including the 15th century architectural style, the medieval walls and Romanesque churches.

The textile industry flourished here and made Segovia a bustling city it its day.  If Jewish history interests you, there remains a lot to be seen down the streets of the old Jewish Quarter including a 15th century synagogue, Corpus Christi, which is open to the public.  From the marvelous plazas and squares, to the winding streets and unique corners, the vast history of the city will unfold before you with basic explanation from your Driver/guide.  For those who would like to enjoy local cuisine, the Roasted Suckling pig is not to be missed.  For the vegetarians, La Granja stewed beans will do and even if you don´t have a sweet tooth the Ponce Segoviana may convert you. We can assist with reservations in our favorite place.
