Luxury Travel Through Spain > Madrid, Discovering the Capital

As a benchmark, the capital of Spain, Madrid, is characterized by a particularly active cultural life as well as various types of exhibitions and events.

Allow us to guide you through your cultural tasting adventure as we select the best tapas of Madrid served at truly local favorites outside of the typical tourist destinations. We present restaurants providing the finest food and views of this magical city and its old locales while immersed in an authentic local atmosphere where you will dine to the sound of Tuna songs.

The best complements to this trip are the cultural aspects that Madrid and Toledo offer. You will enjoy private visits at the world-famous El Prado art museum, the Palacio Real (Royal Palace) and the beautiful and oldest town of Europe, Toledo.
