Madrid Market and Tapas Walking Tour Including Lavapiés Visit
From US$96.61
Overview

Knowing the best spots in Madrid for an authentic taste of Andalusian cuisine can be difficult. Avoid the tourist traps and learn about the city’s gastronomical scene on a tour of the city center, Literary Quarter, and Lavapiés. Sample 5 traditional tapas and sip on Spanish wine as you chat with your guide about the city’s cultural heritage. Receive personalized recommendations and enjoy an intimate experience on a small-group tour.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and group on the Plaza de la Villa, and set off to explore the city’s best dining spots.

First, visit a local market and peruse the fresh food, meats, and cheeses while your guide explains traditional recipes, before sampling the fresh produce yourself.

Next, visit a tavern and enjoy a glass of wine or aperitif as you taste another example of Spanish cuisine. Then, head into the town’s Literary Quarter to learn about Madrid’s resident writers throughout history, including Miguel de Cervantes, before popping into a nearby tapas bar for another morsel.

Afterward, make your way to a traditional restaurant for more helpings of Andalusian fare, along with soft drinks or wine, before exploring the historic Lavapiés neighborhood.

Wander past international eateries on your way to one of Madrid’s oldest taverns for a final tasting plate. Conclude your tour on the Puerta del Sol.
