Participants who complete our seven day program in Segovia ad feel that they just haven't had enough, and would like a bit more of Spain, may opt for our two-day special in Madrid after the close of Segovia activities on Saturday morning. A global price of $645 based on double occupancy ($144 single supplement) covers everything...two nights in the 4-star luxury class Reina Victoria Hotel in the heart of Madrid with sumptuous buffet breakfasts...mid-day meals at first class restaurants and dinners and tapas in old Madrid Hemingway hang-outs as well as "nouvelle cuisine" experiences.
Included in this two-day marathon are a guided visit to the Prado Museum, a stroll through the beautiful Retiro Park, as well as an authentic old-style late night Flamenco performance. Sunday morning we visit the Plaza Mayor with its antique coin, stamp and art stalls and then move on the the greatest flea market in the Western World, the unforgettable Rastro. A traditional bullfight in the Madrid arena highlights the afternoon.
And, of course, there is still time in this whirlwind weekend for exploring other "barrios" (neighborhoods), another museum such as the Reina Sofia or Thyssen Bornemisza, and the shopping district around the Puerta del Sol!
Monday morning we take you to Barajas International Airport. Adios,Madrid. Hasta slempre!
