Learn how the Spanish Royal Family lived throughout history and how they live today. You will even have the chance to explore the Palace’s 19th century English gardens, which include two extraordinary neo-classical fountains and some incredible flower arrangements.

Following the tour of the Royal Palace, you will then walk through the city to Madrid´s stunning central city park, El Retiro, a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike to walk, run, visit historic monuments, see exhibitions, relax with friends or simply enjoy their lunch. El Retiro has over 19,000 trees from 167 different species, a lake and a wide variety of different sculptures, notable buildings and gardens which make the park one of Madrid’s top attractions. Despite being incredibly large, it is possible to see all of El Retiro's jewels and hidden gems. On this tour, your guide will lead you on a route through the best-known sites (such as the crystal palace, the gate of Philip IV and the Royal observatory), as well as a few places that don’t feature in all the guide books!

After the end of your tour, you will still have time to enjoy the park relaxing on the grass, enjoying an ice cream or even renting a rowboat and exploring the famous lake.
