Early Access to Royal Palace of Madrid
From US$34.00
Overview

The Royal Palace of Madrid is a must for any sightseer, but the long queues and throngs of visitors can be off-putting. Beat the crowds and enjoy early access to get intimate looks at the site’s many splendid features. Tour the Royal Armory, Royal Pharmacy, and the Throne Room, and take a morning stroll in the Campo del Moro, while learning more about the palace’s royal history from your guide.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and group at the Royal Palace of Madrid, before it opens to the general public. Marvel at the royal residence’s grand facade, before strolling straight in.

View the Grand Staircase and notice the designer’s elegant use of mahogany and marble. Listen as your guide provides insight into the palace’s history as you stroll past frescoes painted by Spain’s best artists.

Explore the Royal Armory’s range of weaponry, then visit the Royal Pharmacy, gaining insight into the history of medicine, before admiring the magnificent Throne Room.

Afterward, enjoy a morning stroll through Campo del Moro, noticing the garden’s English and Moorish influences, and relax by 'the Tritons' and 'Palacio de las Conchas', both fountains located in the grounds.

Conclude your tour back at your initial meeting point, and enjoy a full day ahead to explore the rest of Madrid.

We attempted to gain admission to the Palace but the line was endless and moved very slowly. We then purchased tickets in advance for the next day. Once again the lines were long and it was a very rainy day. Our admission time was 10:45...More
