On our private full day tour to Toledo, we will pick you in Madrid with an accessible vehicle to drive around 1 hour to the historical city which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Together with your guide you will discover, on this private full day tour to Toledo from Madrid, the mix of Christian, Jewish and Arab history and cultural influences left in this city.
On this tour we will visit Toledo’s Cathedral, Catedral Primada, dedicated to Virgin Mary in her Ascension to the heaven. It is an extraordinary work of architecture with Mudejar ornamentation. The most outstanding features include the choir stalls, the wrought-ironwork or the sacristy. Inside, there’s a museum with works by artists such as El Greco, Raphael, Tiziano and Goya.
After this visit, we will enjoy a stroll along the old town to discover one of the richest monumental heritages in Europe, such as Bisagra Gate, Cristo de la Luz mosque or Santa María La Blanca and Tránsito synagogues, while your official guide explains the exciting history of Toledo, which used to be the main city of Spain.
Our next stop is El Museo del Greco, focused on the figure of El Greco, considered the first great genius painter in Spanish history of art, and his influence in Toledo at the beginning of the 17th century. The museum has an elevator, lifting platform and ramps. However, due to the technical difficulties of an historic house, the tour using elevators and platforms is slightly different, but it still allows to visit most rooms.
After a lunch break, continue to The Army Museum where we will visit El Alcázar de Toledo and a new building, that brings to light the military contributions of Spain. It has halls with different expositions and with a historical path that presents a chronological journey through Spanish military history. The museum has elevators to access to all the halls and some sections includes ramps to reduce the level differences.
Most streets in Toledo are very old and has irregular cobble stoned pavement, so it’s recommended that some people depending on their level of mobility are accompanied. There are different adapted bathrooms mapped along the tour.
This tour does not require a high amount of walking or wheeling, and it can also be completely tailor-made based on each person preferences. The itinerary also avoids steps and it follows a mostly flat path along the Tour.
