Madrid September 2013

A four day (3 night) trip to Madrid, excellently organised. The trip reach Madrid, where an unexpected extra tour of the outer city preceeded our arrival at the hotel. Day 2 started with the more traditional coach tour of this beautiful city and continued with an informative walking tour on the older parts of the city.

On our return journey, we spent the morning and lunchtime at Aranjuez enjoying the Summer Palace.
