Toledo and Segovia Tour with Alcazar Entrance from Madrid

1,016 reviews
Visiting both Toledo and Segovia in a day from Madrid is near impossible without a car rental and some serious time management. On this trip, you get to see both cities as a guide charts their history, minus the stress of organizing transport. Plus, you’re certain of seeing the key sights, including Toledo’s Primada Cathedral, and Segovia’s Roman aqueduct and Alcazar. Ideal if you’re pressed for time and want a day out of Madrid.

Always good temporary expositions coming at Reina Sofia. Permanent exposition is a must-see, you wouldn't miss the huge hit Guernica by Picasso, but shouldn't either miss countless masterpieces from Dalí, and various french and british artists. A final positive point, the museum shop has very interesting books on modern art for a good price.

One of the amazing things about Madrid is that galleries like the Prado and Reina Sofia offer free evenings. This is a wonderfully generous gesture. Between 7-9pm, entry is free every evening (except Tues). We arrived at 7:20pm expecting a long wait but they were very efficient and it took less than 10 min before we were inside. There are a few things that would have been helpful in planning ahead: * If you are going on a free evening, decide beforehand which works are on your must-see list, then pick up the floorpan map when you enter and make a beeline for them * You have to leave backpacks in lockers, so best not to take them at all if you are going in the evening when your time is already limited * Picasso’s Guernica is in Room 206. We definitely didn't want to miss this so we headed there first. * No photos are allowed in any of the 206 rooms. This is strictly enforced by security guards and is especially strict in the Guernica room. However, you can take photos elsewhere. * A lot of the big names are clustered together, making it easy to see them. The Salvador Dali paintings are in Room 205 and the Cubist works (Braques, Gris and Picasso) are in 210. * I found the floorplan a little confusing. The map helps but even so, I found the layout difficult to follow. * Some rooms have information cards in a box by the door but for the most part, there is little information on the artists or works. If like me, you find this frustrating, then it would be helpful to get the audio or read up beforehand. I didn't do either and so the lack of information left me a bit disappointed. * They will start moving you out around 8:45pm. In hindsight, this makes sense as they want to have the place locked up and doors bolted by 9pm but I had expected to have right up until 9 so this took us by surprise and left us a little short of time. We had to shoot around the last of the Cubist paintings for a very quick look. * The gallery is closed on Tuesdays * Free entry starts earlier on Sundays, from 1:30pm

Those who delight in 20th-century art will love this museum. We have mixed feelings about 20th-century art, so our enjoyment was somewhat muted. Picasso's Guernica was clearly a highlight, as was the building itself, a former hospital.

One of the most oppressive museums I’ve ever visited. When you walk in a room, the “guard” abruptly puts down their phone, jumps from their chair, and stares at you. They pace around, circling, stalking. Am I sketchier-looking than other visitors? No. They do this with everyone. Even in a near empty museum. Has anyone at Reina Sofía ever visited a major art museum outside of Spain? That’s not how they do it. Even in former Soviet states, they give you more space. Or just walk down the street to Prado where they do it right. Maybe they can train your staff how not to suffocate your guests’ experiences. This museum has great stuff, but they don’t give you breathing room to fully appreciate it.
