Live it up in the soulful Spanish capital of Madrid - a city that truly never sleeps, and whose creativity, traditions and vibrant lifestyle are yours to explore today.

Day 2 Madrid Sightseeing with Chocolate and Churros Tasting and Prado Museum
Enjoy a mesmerising encounter with centuries of history and cultural highlights as you embark on a sightseeing tour of Madrid with your Local Specialist. View Plaza de España, stroll along Gran Vía, and see the Royal Palace. After our city tour, we'll 'Dive Into Culture' and visit a historic chocolatería to indulge in the spicy, sugary flavours of churros. We'll visit the renowned Prado Museum, with one of the finest collections of European art dating back to the 12th century. View the likes of 'Las Meninas', Francisco Goya's haunting collection of 'Black Paintings' and the whimsical art of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. The rest of the day is yours to embrace la buena vida and soak up the passionate atmosphere of Madrid's vibrant streets. (Buffet Breakfast)

Travel to the clifftop city of Toledo today, where you'll join your Local Specialist for a guided walking tour. Visit the Church of Santo Tomé, the oldest synagogue in Europe and home to one of El Greco's most famous paintings, the Burial of Count Orgaz. Spend some time ambling through the city's streets and shopping for ceramics and leather before returning to Madrid. This evening, we enjoy a Regional Meal at a well-known eatery that has been a meeting place in Madrid for intellectuals, writers and artists since 1888. (Buffet Breakfast, Regional Meal)

Today is yours to soak up the spirit of Madrid. Indulge in local flavours and aromas at the Mercado de San Miguel or to take a stroll through Buen Retiro Park. Once a royal garden, this retreat is the green heart of the city, lined with beautiful sculptures and monuments and almost impervious to the bustle of Madrid's surrounding streets. Alternatively, consider a full-day Optional Experience to Ávila, the 'Town of Stones and Saints', so named for its exquisite churches that lie within this UNESCO listed fortified city's walls.

We'll view the Alcázar of Segovia and the medieval and Moorish architecture that has shaped this city. We return to Madrid this evening, joining our Travel Director and fellow travel companions for a memorable Spanish paella Farewell Dinner and celebration of a mesmerising encounter with Madrid and the iconic cities that surround it.
