After the visit in 2017 exploring Connoisseurs’ Rome, Ciceroni Travel have now organised a similar trip for the Worcestershire volunteer fundraising committee, this time to Madrid and Toledo. As with Rome, the emphasis will be on great art collections, formed not only by the Hapsburg and Bourbon dynasties but also by some of the leading aristocratic families of Spain. Led by Tom Duncan, the group will have two occasions for private visits to the Prado Museum before it opens to the public and also enjoy the great privilege of a private tour of the amazing collection of the Dukes of Alba in the Palacio de Liria in Madrid. The trip will also explore historic Toledo where the group will be entertained in a private palacio to lunch. Other sites will include two of the royal palaces - Madrid’s Royal Palace and Aranjuez, plus the Thyssen Collection and the Reina Sofia Museum.

This six day tour will take place from 12 to 17 May 2019 and the group will stay in the 5* Hotel Villa Real, a short walk from the Prado. Flights are included with BA from Heathrow Airport. The tour price will be £2290 per person sharing, with a single supplement (double for single occupancy) of £380. A donation to the Art Fund is included.
