With more than 3,000 rooms, the Royal Palace (Palacio Real) in Madrid offers visitors a wealth of treasures. Make sure you see the best of the palace on a guided tour designed to enhance your experience of the top Madrid landmark. Plus, a skip-the-line admission ticket means you’ll avoid queues often in excess of one hour.
Your tour begins at an easy-to-find meeting point outside of the Royal Palace, where you’ll greet your guide and begin exploring some of the palace’s 3,000 rooms.

See, too, the former chambers of previous kings of Spain and learn about the palace’s rich history through your guide’s commentary. After an hour and a half, you’ll be free to continue exploring the palace independently.
