Explore the walled city of Avila, Spain’s best-preserved 11th-century fortified town, and discover why it is known as the City of Stones and Saints. Then unravel centuries of history in the city of Segovia, from its two-tiered Roman aqueduct to its Moorish fort and stunning Gothic cathedral. With the option to indulge in a gastronomic lunch, your trip to these two UNESCO World Heritage sites is a feast for all the senses!HighlightsDay trip (destination A to B)Informative, friendly and professional guideAll entrance fees includedPickup from a centrally located meeting pointWhat You Can ExpectYour day trip from Madrid to Avila begins with a stop at hilltop Los Cuatro Postes to admire superb panoramic views over the city of Avila, dotted with church towers and Gothic palaces, and declared a UNESCO ‘Heritage of Mankind’ city.Entering the 11th-century city walls encircling Avila, notice how the 90 fortified towers and circular turrets look like they’ve stepped out of a storybook, and hear how Avila is an important pilgrimage site as the birthplace of the mystic writer Saint Teresa of Jesus (1515–82). Then explore two of the best examples from the astounding array of Romanesque and Gothic churches in Avila, packed with one of the highest concentrations of Romanesque and Gothic churches in Spain.Your guided visit to Avila’s churches takes you to San Vicente Basilica, a Gothic masterpiece and home to some of Spain’s most prized examples of Romanesque sculpture. Then see how Gothic and Romanesque architecture combine in Avila’s celebrated cathedral, with its fortress design and alabaster chapels and tombs.Continue your Segovia day trip to see one of the finest Roman-era monuments in Spain -- Segovia's Roman aqueduct. Admire the scale of this incredible feat of engineering, built entirely without mortar during the reign of Augustus in the 1st century AD, and see how the aqueduct originally had 118 arches and was 10 miles (16 kilometers) long.Your guided tour of Segovia also takes you to the famous Alcazar, a beautiful 11th-century medieval fort that inspired the design of Disney’s fairytale castle. One of the finest Moorish fortresses in Spain, it’s also at the heart of one of the most significant group of medieval buildings in the country. Step back in time and imagine the medieval tournaments that once took place here, and the heroic knights who fought in the court of the kings of Castile who ruled from Segovia.Complete your Segovia guided visit with a look at the city’s impressive cathedral, the last Gothic cathedral built in Spain and known as ‘the Lady of the Cathedrals’.On this day trip to Segovia you have the option of including a tourist-style lunch of stuffed veal or a superb gastronomic meal featuring local Segovian specialties such as roasted suckling pig.ItinerarySample Menu (subject to change)Tourist Lunch: La Granja white beans Beef cooked 'Segovian style' Dessert Gastronomic Lunch La Granja white beans Roasted baby pig Segovian cake Mineral water, wine and coffee Cancellation Policy Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service. Customer Reviews Catherine J 25-Jan-2017 This was a sensational tour. Avila is a fascinating old town lots of walking.... have to be physically fit for the endurance of a lot of easy walking, but miles can be challenging and Segovia was spectacular. Standing and walking at the base of the aqueduct is something I will never forget. Because we broke off from our tour group for the lunch portion selected our own place with a time for rejoining our tour guide was very specific and helpful we could spend more time exploring on our own. The whole tour was beautifully planned out with rest stops from walking and for refreshments and toilet facilities. Very very impressive tour any way you look at it. Oh, and the bus was brand new big Mercedes A/C comfortable for sitting and viewing along the way. We liked that the tour guide did not talk too much constant during the trip... just enough to indicate what we were seeing but not constant chatter! Highly recommend this tour!! Venkatadri B 31-Dec-2016 Worth it if you have an extra day. Randy Y 26-Dec-2016 All around enjoyable day. Guide was knowledgeable with a sense of humor. Tour bus was clean, safe driver, and ran pretty much on time. The delicious Segovian lunch was served in a nice festive Christmas Eve restaurant. Shelly E 24-Dec-2016 Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, even on a cool rainy December day! Carmen, the guide, was excellent -- personable, knowledgeable, and with a nice sense of humor. I wasn't sure if it was worth doing a tour that squeezed both places in, but I'm so glad I did. Avila is beautiful and fascinating. The only thing I would do differently is take the gastronomic lunch in Segovia -- I chose to do the no lunch option and ended up rushing through a Castellan soup on my own after some shopping, and missed out on the food specialties that the region is known for. Letittia 21-Dec-2016 Good tour. Got to see everything we wanted. Please wait...
