Overview

Travel from Madrid on a full-day trip to the imperial city of Toledo, one of Europe’s oldest cities and home to famous works by El Greco. Tour the Gothic cathedral, and see the Church of Santo Tome, the former synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca, and more.

Description

Located just a short drive from Madrid, Toledo is known as the city of the 3 cultures: Christian, Muslim, and Jewish. People from these rich cultural heritages have lived together here for centuries.

Your expert guide will take you on a full-day panoramic tour of Toledo. Discover Spanish architecture representing the Arab, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. Tour the Gothic Cathedral that dates from the 13th century.

Admire El Greco's masterpiece El Entierro del Senor de Orgaz, at the Church of Santo Tome. Visit Santa Maria la Blanca, the oldest synagogue building in Europe that’s still standing. Continue on to the Museum of Victorio Macho at the very center of the Jewish quarter.

Visit the historic Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, founded by King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile, to commemorate their victory at the Battle of Toro over the army of Afonso V of Portugal.

Amazing tour to Toledo!

Great guide, excellent tour. I did not get the tour with the meal included and am very glad- ended up getting a cheaper meal in the city and an opportunity to try something new!

Der Tag war in Ordnung, hätte aber mehr Infos beinhalten können.

Der Tag war ok. Das Mittagessen allerdings war miserabel. Außerdem haben mir Informationen zu der Stadt allgemein gefehlt. Ich hätte es schön gefunden, mehr über die Stadt an sich zu erfahren.

Il tour potrebbe considerarsi concluso a fine mattina.

Il tour e' veramente molto bello: Toledo e' sicuramente una città da visitare! La guida e' stata esaustiva e chiara nelle spiegazioni; il tempo dedicato alla visita della fabbrica e' solo tempo sprecato perché è esclusivamente una vendita pilotata, sarebbe stato molto meglio avete 2 ore a propria disposizione nel centro di Toledo per decidere autonomamente come gestirlo.
