We had a day to spend in Granada and the first place to go would be the Alhambra, after that, we will take a walk at the city central to enjoy a slow walk plus getting some souvenirs before we bid goodbye to Granada.
One of the main reason for keeping Granada a popular destination among the tourists is because of The Alhambra. However, besides this world known heritage site, Granada itself has an amazing neighborhood with friendly people.
There are 2 highly recommended restaurants for suckling pig in Segovia. In the end, we chose José María Restaurant for our lunch. We were ushered to our seats very quickly as our lunch reservation was done prior our arrival.
What makes the suckling pig special? It is the preparation for suckling pig. The moment you put the suckling pig and into your mouth, the meat actually ‘melt’. An interesting point to note, in this restaurant, the plate was used to cut the suckling pig which shows that the meat of the suckling pig is tender and crispy. (more…)
When we were planning our day trip to Avila and Segovia, we were contemplating if we should rent a car or join a local tour. After taking into consideration the cost of the car rental vs local tour, we decided to go with a local tour.
We booked our day tour via Viator and the 8-hour tour cost 80EUR (per person, lunch not included). You can opt for the tour with lunch included (cost will differ).
Our first stop in Madrid, Santiago Bernabéu Stadium Tour, the place where we wanted to visit when we were planning our itinerary. This is one of the must visit place, even though you are not a hard core soccer fan. You can get to look into the history room and behind the scene of the stadium.
We booked this apartment, Eric Vökel Atocha, based on the well-taken photos from the website, and I must say, we are not disappointed at all. The apartment definitely meet our expectations during our stay in Eric Vökel Atocha, although the apartment differs slightly from what we see from the website.
I couldn’t find words to describe how we enjoyed our stay here and the apartment is just a short walking distance from the train station. Please do consider staying here when you are in Madrid.
