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. Admire highlights, such as the Throne Room and the Hall of Alabarderos, and look out for paintings by the likes of Caravaggio and Velazquez.

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.
