Explore the stunning urban oasis of Retiro Park on a 1.5-hour Segway tour of Madrid. Benefit from a training session on the self-balancing vehicles before you set off. Admire wonderful monuments in the park and pass sights, such as the Palacio de Cibeles.
What to Expect
Climb aboard a self-balancing Segway to explore the most beautiful park in Madrid. Meet on Plaza Mayor for an introduction to the electric vehicles surrounded by traditional Spanish architecture on the site of an area formerly used for bullfights and fearful religious trials.
Once you are comfortable on the Segway, glide over to the so-called "Barrio de las Letras" ("Literary Quarter") where some of Spain’s major literary figures, such as Cervantes and Lope de Vega, used to live. Journey down Calle de las Huertas to reach the Prado Museum, a world-famous temple of art. Then, follow your guide past one of the most beautiful churches in Madrid. See the magnificent facade of the Iglesia de los Jerónimos before arriving at Retiro Park.
Ride around the park for about 40 minutes and see landmarks such as the lovely pond, Crystal Palace and monument representing Lucifer's fall from Heaven. Enjoy the relaxing sensation of gliding along the park's large avenues. Depart the park and make your way back to the start point, passing the Puerta de Alcalá (Alcalá Gate), Palacio de Cibeles (Cybele Palace) and Puerta del Sol at the true heart of the city.
