Egypt’s Great Pyramid took 20 years to build without modern machinery. Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia Basilica…over 130 years and counting. Talk about procrastination! But don’t you procrastinate—Monograms has made it easy for you to travel to sunny Spain and the great cities of Barcelona & Madrid! On this package, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing in both cities, daily breakfast, transportation via high-speed train (first-class) between the cities, transportation to/from the train stations, and materials to familiarise you with both cities. But that’s not all…we’ve also arranged for you to have a Local Host® in each city—someone to translate for you, offer you suggestions, answer questions, and help your holiday run smoothly.
Then you’re off to Madrid, Spain’s capital, via high-speed train. In Madrid, your guided sightseeing with a local expert guide includes a visit to the Prado Museum, one of the world’s best-endowed museums with paintings by Spanish artists as well as renowned masters such as El Greco, Velázquez, and Goya. Be sure to ask your Local Host where you can best capture the spectacular, panoramic views of Madrid in a photo. In your free time, your Local Host can also provide you with many suggestions on places to go and things to see. Perhaps enjoy a Flamenco show; take an excursion to Segovia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its Roman aqueduct and Alcazar, an 11th-century medieval castle; or relax as you stroll through El Retiro Park, dating back to the 1600s. With all of this and more, this holiday is sure to delight!
