Greet your guide at Plaza de la Villa, located in the heart of the city. Head first to a local market and browse stalls bursting with fresh produce, stacks of cured meat, and creamy cheese, and listen as you guide offers insight into the ingredients. Hear about the origin of tapas and try some tasty tidbits from the food stalls.
Continue to a tavern that dates back to the 19th century. Sip a glass of wine or an aperitif, complemented by another Spanish specialty. Afterward, stroll through the streets of Madrid’s literary district and learn about the area's former residents, including tales of Miguel de Cervantes, before joining locals in a popular bar for another tapas dish.
Then visit a rustic restaurant dedicated to serving traditional Adalusian food, and sample cheeses and cured meats with wine or soft drinks.
End your tour in the cosmopolitan neighborhood of Lavapiés, replete with restaurants. Pass African eateries, Indian cafes, and more on your way to the final food spot, one of Madrid’s oldest taverns. Savor your last dish before bidding your guide and group farewell.
