Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Cumbres Del Ajusco National Park. Next up on the itinerary: learn more about the world around you at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, don't miss a visit to Murales de Diego Rivera en la Secretaria de Educacion Publica, get to know the fascinating history of Zocalo, and examine the collection at Museo Frida Kahlo.

Cultural Capital of Spain

Madrid is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, lively nightlife, and a dynamic culinary scene.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Alcazar of Segovia and The Four Posts. Popular historic sites such as Catedral de Segovia and Royal Palace of Madrid are in your itinerary.

There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Prado National Museum, examine the collection at Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, contemplate the long history of Museo Cerralbo, and wander the streets of Gran Via.
