Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Madrid and climb aboard an air-conditioned coach destined for Pedraza. Delve into the unique history of the beautiful walled village as you travel through the verdant splendor of the Spanish countryside.
On arrival, navigate the charming labyrinth of cobbled streets in the historical heart of the village. Admire emblazoned houses and rustic structures as you stroll to a traditional tapas restaurant to feast on Spanish specialties and sample locally produced wine.
Return to the vehicle for the short drive to Segovia, where an array of ancient attractions awaits. On a guided walking tour, pass the legendary Roman aqueduct that spans a distance of 10 miles (16 km) and enter the Segovia Cathedral to esteem the opulent interior of the dramatic Gothic cathedral, considered a masterpiece of Basque-Castillian architecture.
Revitalize with a typical Spanish lunch at midday, choosing to enjoy a provided lunch or set off in search of your own lunchtime feast. Please see the Itinerary section for a sample menu detailing each lunch option.
Continue to the Alcázar of Segovia (Segovia Castle), an iconic fortress cradled by the Guadarrama Mountains and two picturesque rivers. Explore the stolid interior of the castle and hear of how the building's distinctive shape inspired the castle in Walt Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ film.
When your enriching tour comes to an end, return to your comfortable vehicle for the relaxing journey back to Madrid.
