DAY 5:  ENIGMAS of EL ESCORIAL 

Venture out of Madrid to the one-of-a-kind El Escorial, a vast palace, and monastery.  El Escorial was also the HQ gigantic Spanish Empire that stretched from Florida to California and the Philippines, Holland, Portugal and even part of Italy.

On your guided Escorial tour, don’t miss the Royal Pantheon, the tombs of early Spanish royalty. There’s also a one-of-a-kind historic library said to have original Greek, Roman, Jewish, and Moorish text. Your excursion finishes back in Madrid.

DAY 6:   SECRETS of SEGOVIA

Enjoy a day of leisure in majestic Madrid on your own or opt for our splendid Secrets of Segovia day trip – 2,000 years ago Segovia was a Roman outpost short on water. Emperor Trajan had a stream rerouted via a massive nine-mile-long aqueduct – constructed with no mortar. It brought water to Segovia until modern times. Don’t miss the “fairy tale” medieval castle, said to have inspired Walt Disney. For foodies, the cochinillo asado (roast suckling pork) is world-famous as are red wines of the nearby Ribera del Duero. Transfers to and from Madrid by train or private driver. After the excursion, you’ll have your evening free in Madrid.
