So much has been written about this mysterious city first mentioned by the Roman historian Titus Livius on 193 BC. For centuries wise men and artists have tried to figure out the mysteries of this city. However, like all places with a special destiny, Toledo jealously guards one final secret, the one that is only revealed through a personal visit…
Who is to visit Toledo with us?
The Private Toledo Tour is for small groups willing to explore Spain’s former Capital. Toledo is a welcoming city with rich historical meaning for Madrid and Spain. Therefore, visitors who are passionate about the history of Spanish society, power, religion and economy will enjoy the excursion. In addition, visitors will enjoy a different landscape and architectural design all around. In addition, Toledo is ideal for peregrines as it hosts the rich history of the conviviality of the so-called City of the Three Cultures: Islam, Judaism and Christianity. As a UNESCO World Heritage city, Toledo is a fabulous destination to tick off your bucket list.
What to expect on the Private Toledo Tour.
After picking you up in Madrid, we will drive up to the southern hill of Toledo to admire a panoramic view that will take breath away. I will invite you to a cup of coffee as we plan our visit. We will then park by the northern gate of Bisagra from where we will take an escalator to the hilltop. From here on we will embark on a wonderful walking experience that will take you back in time. You will be transported to the old Roman days, to the Muslim rule in the lower middle ages or the days of the great Spanish Emperor Carlos V. The visit explores the Jewish Quarter, the Primal Spanish Cathedral built in 1226, synagogues and mosques. You will learn why Toledo is also referred to as the city of the three cultures. While walking, we will pass by a famous ceramic shop run by one family for seven generations. We will also stop at the most traditional damasquino ( Damasquinado) shop, near the Sephardic Museum, to appreciate gems also known as Toledo Gold. This exclusive tour is limited to a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 4.
