Al principio tenía miedo el hacer una cosa así. Dejar mis pertenencias a un lugar desconocido. Solicité guardar una maleta pequeña y al final tuve que guardar una pequeña bolsa más, y para mí sorpresa no me cobraron nada a mayores. Todo un detallazo. La persona muy atenta y siempática. No ha habido ningún problema. Segurísimo que repito. Y lo recomiendo.

Ballon Private Excursion Over Segovia | Day Trip from Madrid: Top Things to See, Do, Buy, & Eat

Ballon Private Excursion Over Segovia

Private Excursion to Segovia from Madrid by VIP Car (or Mercedes Vito Van, Minibus, or Premium Bus) is a full-day private tour departing from any point in Madrid in a high-end private vehicle.

Discover Segovia, a city filled with historical monuments. Admire the magnificent Roman aqueduct dating back to the time of Emperor Augustus. Immerse yourself in its rich architectural heritage as you follow your guide to the Gothic-style cathedral.

Lastly, you’ll cross the Canonjías neighborhood until you reach the Alcázar of Segovia, one of the most spectacular fortresses in all of Spain. It is even said to have served as inspiration for Walt Disney in designing Snow White’s castle. After admiring its exterior, enter to discover its legends and glorious past.

Experience an incredible adventure as you soar above the city of Segovia, propelled only by the wind. Take a hot air balloon ride from the outskirts of Segovia and ascend to the skies.

Where is Segovia?

Segovia is located in the central part of Spain, in the autonomous community of Castilla y León. It is situated approximately 90 kilometers (56 miles) northwest of Madrid. The city is known for its well-preserved historic center and iconic landmarks such as the Roman aqueduct, Alcázar (castle), and the Gothic cathedral.

How to get to Segovia from Madrid?

Only 90 kilometers separate both cities, making it very easy and relatively comfortable to travel between them.

Although Segovia is a beautiful and historically rich city, its small size and quick accessibility from the capital make it a perfect day trip from Madrid.

To reach Segovia from Madrid via the fastest and most convenient route, you would need to pay a toll. You would take the A-6 (Madrid-Coruña) and, at the Collado Villalba junction, the Northwest Highway (AP-6). Once you pass through the Guadarrama tunnel (about 3 kilometers long), you arrive at San Rafael, already in the province of Segovia, where you can choose whether to take the national road N-603 or the bypass road.

What to eat in Segovia?

  • Judiones de La Granja: This traditional dish has managed to position itself as one of the culinary gems of the province. Judiones (large white beans) are cooked with the typical sofrito (sautéed onions, garlic, and tomatoes) and different types of pork meat (chorizo, blood sausage, bacon, a little bit of ham…).
  • Cochinillo de Segovia: It is the ultimate star dish of Segovian gastronomy history. A true icon of tradition! Its presentation can leave anyone amazed if they have never tried it before. The whole suckling pig is served on a tray and carved in front of the diners. Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. A true spectacle!
  • Caldereta: It is basically a juicy lamb stew with potatoes and spices. The meat becomes very tender and has that strong flavor characteristic of lamb. Accompany it with bread and wine for a super traditional Castilian meal.
  • Sopa Castellana: It is made with a broth to which stale bread, garlic, egg, paprika, and small cubes of serrano ham are added. It is usually served in a clay pot.
  • Ponche Segoviano: It is nothing more than a slice of classic sponge cake with a cream filling. It is covered with a layer of marzipan and powdered sugar, which is slightly toasted in a diamond pattern at the end.

These are just a few examples of the delicious gastronomy of Segovia. Exploring the local cuisine and savoring these traditional dishes is a delightful experience that shouldn’t be missed.
