Overview:

Get up close and personal with Spain and its rich history on a day tour to Avila and Segovia. Relax as you are taken to visit the birthplace of Santa Teresa de Jesus in Avila. Then see the Aqueduct of Segovia and stop off at the stunning castle, Alcázar.

Description:

Discover the history of Spain on a full-day excursion leaving from Madrid. Visit Avila and Segovia, learning about the rich cultural heritage of the country and its people.

Begin with transport via an air-conditioned bus to Avila, where you will learn about Santa Teresa de Jesus, a great mystic woman of the Roman Catholic Church. You will also see some of the city; Avila has the most ancient and completely fortified complex in Spain.

Its 8,200-foot-long wall (about 2,500 meters) and its 90 fortified towers surround the old city, which houses a great part of its monumental treasures, including a large number of Romanesque-style churches, gothic palaces, and a fortified cathedral of the 12th century.

Next, continue on to visit the remains of the Roman Empire as seen at the Aqueduct of Segovia. Discover how this residence of some of the kings of Castilia is one of the most important medieval groups of buildings in Spain.

Finally, admire the "Lady of the Cathedrals" and view the most spectacular castle in Spain, Alcázar, which was built as a fortress but has also been used as a royal palace, state prison, college, and military academy.

What's Included:

• Transportation by air-conditioned bus
• Multilingual guide
• Entrances to the included monuments as described

  • Rating: 5 “Great day in two cities with excellent explanations”

    Reviewed by Melissa from Nashville, United States on January 5, 2015 On our last day in Madrid, we wanted to get out of the city and explore without the hassle of getting ourselves there by train or car. This affordable tour allowed us the opportunity to visit two cities with excellent English explanations. Very enjoyable!


  • Rating: 5 “An enchanting tour with charming guide”

    Reviewed by Sandra from Florence, United States on December 23, 2014 Taking this tour was a full yet relaxing day as we were brought to the high points of our destinations with no worries about transportation. Nuria was an informative and charming guide. We enjoyed our filling lunch at the traditional restaurant. The trip was well worthwhile!


  • Rating: 3 “English version lacked volume and clarity. See trip advisor”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Mandurang, Australia on September 1, 2014 Interesting and full day although guide was rushed due to speaking both languages.


  • Rating: 3 “Too much in one day!”

    Reviewed by Marcia from Ossining, United States on July 25, 2014 Felt rushed through it all. Had no time to shop and explore, not handicap accessible, too much walking for handicap disabled individuals, would prefer a choice of food in the lunch program.


  • Rating: 5 “Great tour.”

    Reviewed by Natalia from Austin, United States on May 19, 2014 Awesome tour. Both places are definitely worth visiting and this tour lets you visit both in one day.
