Begin your adventure at Plaza de la Villa, the old main square located in the center of Madrid. Make your way to the iconic San Miguel Market, the country's first gourmet market, and pamper yourself with a delicious appetizer. No visit to the market would be complete without a traditional vermouth accompanied by some of the most succulent olives you've ever tasted. Spain is a significant cheese producer, offering delights such as Manchego, Mahón, or the exquisite Idiazábal, which pairs perfectly with a glass of wine.

Next, head to the lively La Latina neighborhood and venture through its narrow streets while uncovering its fascinating history. Visit a small restaurant known for its traditional tapas dishes with a modern fusion twist and get ready to experience the bustling atmosphere of Madrid. Back in the oldest part of Madrid, you will continue learning about the city's history and gastronomy while discovering some local artisan shops perfect for getting an original handmade souvenir. And what would a gastronomic tour of Madrid be without trying the iconic calamari sandwich in the heart of Plaza Mayor? Moreover, if you pair it with a local beer, you'll have the ultimate gastronomic experience. As you wander the streets, the guide will provide you with tips on the most interesting places and alternative stops that you shouldn't miss while in Madrid. The penultimate stop of the day is a traditional tavern specialized in potato croquettes, serving the tastiest croquettes in the capital since 1860. End the tour on a high note while sampling a local dessert accompanied by a sweet wine in a historic venue run by the same family for over a hundred years.

Empieza la aventura en la plaza de la Villa, la antigua plaza principal ubicada en el centro de Madrid. Ábrete el camino hacia el icónico mercado de San Miguel, el primer mercado gurmé del país y mímate con un delicioso aperitivo. Ninguna visita al mercado estaría completa sin un vermú tradicional acompañado por algunas de las aceitunas más suculentas que hayas probado nunca. España es un importante productor de queso, ofreciendo delicias como el manchego, mahona o el exquisito idiazábal, que maridará a la perfección con una copa de vino.

A continuación, pon rumbo al animado barrio de La Latina y adéntrate en las calles estrechas mientras revelas su fascinante historia. Visita un pequeño restaurante, conocido por sus platos de tapas tradicionales con un toque moderno de fusión y prepárate para vivir el bullicioso ambiente madrileño. De vuelta a la parte más antigua de Madrid, seguirás aprendiendo sobre la historia y la gastronomía de la ciudad mientras descubrirás algunas de las tiendas locales artesanales perfectas para conseguir un recuerdo original hecho a mano. Y qué sería de un recorrido gastronómico por Madrid sin probar el icónico bocadillo de calamares, en el corazón de la Plaza Mayor. Es más, si lo juntamos con una cerveza local, tendremos la experiencia gastronómica definitiva. De vuelta a las calles, el guía te dará consejos sobre los lugares más interesantes y las paradas alternativas que no te puedes perder mientras estés en Madrid. La penúltima parada del día es una taberna tradicional especializada en croquetas de patatas, que sirve las croquetas más sabrosas de la capital desde 1860. Acaba el recorrido por todo lo alto mientras pruebas un postre local acompañado por un vino dulce en un local histórico, dirigido por la misma familia desde hace más de cien años.
