With two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and an overload of historical monuments, Segovia cannot be avoided while touring in Spain. Segovia isn’t quite easy to get, hence a round trip from Madrid is the best way to visit this charming town.
This aristocratic town might be tiny but has ample to offer with its 16th century Romanesque and flamboyant gothic architecture scattered all over the town, that can only be experienced on foot. From a Roman aqueduct running through the old town and a castle-fortress perched on a hill, Segovia seems like a town out of a period drama. Not to forget, the erstwhile bull ring turned central plaza might as well be the perfect place for an aperitivo! Drive through the picturesque Spanish countryside in a comfortable bus from Madrid to Segovia, which takes an hour. As you approach the charming town, the Romanesque churches and dun-colour houses welcome you from far away. A professional guide will accompany you throughout the tour.
At Segovia, your bus will drop you at Plaza del Azoguejo, in front of the impressive Aqueduct of Segovia, the colossal, double-tiered structure ingeniously constructed with no mortar and runs through the old town.
Segovia is explored best on foot and your guide will take you around town showing you the monuments, enclaves and viewpoints like Plaza Mayor, the imposing Gothic Cathedral and the fairy-tale like castle-fortress, Alcazar of Segovia.
After the guided tour, you will be free to look around on your own, strolling through the alleys of the old town and tasting tapas at the traditional inns and bars.
After spending quality time, you will head back to Madrid.
