Your expert guide will make sure you skip the line, fast-tracking you to the spectacular interiors that await.

Your guide will also point out works of master artists along the way including Velázquez, Goya, and Caravaggio.

Visit the Royal Chapel and see its collection of stringed instruments made by the legendary Antonio Stradivari.
