Enjoy your vacations, business or incentive trip to Madrid differently. Cooking class, tapas tour and cultural visits during a weekend in Madrid, Spain. Leisure and fun for 2 days.

Saturday - 11 am to 3 pm - Cooking class (might be changed to afternoon)

We will pick you up at your hotel to take you to our cooking school in Madrid in the center of Madrid. We will visit a local market to buy and learn about the ingredients we will use to cook our Spanish recepies. Then we will go to our prestigious cooking school and put on our aprons …….The workshop will last about two and a half hours and will consist of a complete menu- first and second dish and dessert -based on regional or other typical Spanish recipes you may wish to learn how to cook (or to meet your needs and tastes) such us:

· Gazpacho: Cold tomato soup with garlic, olive oil and other vegetables (depends on time of year)

Free afternoon to explore the intensity of this elegant city with all its magnificent monuments, large avenues and royal gardens. You can visit some of its great museums such as EL Prado, Reina Sofia or Thyssen or do some shopping at the fancy shops in the lovely Barrio de Salamanca, or main Gran Via street. Suggestions for dinner will be given.

Sunday - 10 am to 3 pm - Visit of Royal Palace and tapas tour

Visit of the amazing Royal Palace: Philip V commissioned Sacchetti, an Italian, with its construction. It was decorated by renowned 18th century European artists. Works by Tiépolo, Lucas Jordán, Mengs and Goya can be seen in its rooms. Its armoury is considered to be one of the most important in the world.

From the Royal Palace, just in the beautiful Opera plaza, our guide will lead you on a private walk along some interesting sites which currently form part of what is known as the Madrid of the Habsburgs, in the area surrounding the beautiful arcaded Main Square (Plaza Mayor) , and visiting gorgeous bars and cheerful taverns in the most famous tapas quarter. Snacking and drinking your way through the evening from bar to bar is incredibly Spanish, and can be lots of fun. Grabbing a “tapa”, a small portion of food, and a drink at one place just leads to someone saying “lets go to that place down the street,” where they might offer a better tapa. Anything from shrimps cooked in garlic, clams in sherry sauce, ham croquettes with a béchamel sauce, stuffed peppers, pickles on cocktail sticks, cheeses and hams can be enjoyed as a tapa. End of services.
