Overview
With more than 3,000 rooms, the Royal Palace (Palacio Real) in Madrid offers visitors a wealth of treasures. Make sure you see the best of the palace on a guided tour designed to enhance your experience of the top Madrid landmark. Plus, a skip-the-line admission ticket means you’ll avoid queues often in excess of one hour.
What to Expect
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.

Palace Tour

We started as one large group at the meeting point, but once we walked to the palace we were split into Spanish or English speaking groups. The smaller groups are still large, so if you’re looking for a more intimate tour, then it’s best to...More
