What to expect

Embark on a journey through Spain’s rich historical past on this full day guided day tour to the vibrant cities of Avila and Segovia. Known as ‘The City of Saints and Stones’, you’ll begin your tour in Avila, a city where Romans, Moors and Christians all made their mark so you’ll see a unique mix of architectural styles. Upon walking through the winding narrow streets that once attracted thousands of pilgrims, you’ll see vestiges of the past as you head towards the Convent and Museum of St. Teresa de Jesus. After visiting the cathedral and Basilica San Vincente you’ll then make your way to Segovia. With its looming turrets and towering sandstone defensive walls you’ll feel like you’ve stumbled into a fairytale. Here, you'll visit the magnificent Alcazar castle from whose summit provides truly exceptional views and afterwards explore the impressive 1st century AD Roman Aqueduct, the city’s most recognisable symbol, as your friendly guide explains its fascinating history and construction. At the end of your tour, you'll board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and return to Madrid.
