Begin with a rich hot chocolate, as you learn about Plaza Mayor’s heritage. Then, continue on to the San Miguel Market to peruse the fresh produce. Head to a traditional eatery to sample cocido stew, a typical Madrid dish, before strolling on to the best vendors in town to taste their cured ham (jamón), Spanish tortilla, and beverages, including national wines, vermouth, and cider.

Stop also at a bakery to sample some sweet bites, and pass landmarks, such as the Royal Palace and Plaza de la Villa, gaining insight into the capital’s culture from your local guide as you explore.

At the end of your tour, return to the Plaza Mayor, and continue your exploration with a new perspective and recommendations for the rest of your trip.
