Walking Tour of Segovia

Aloha Everyone,

Segovia is a pedestrian friendly city. Because of its proximity to Madrid, this is a very popular destination with both local and foreign tourists. Many come for the day, add the walled city of Avila, and return to Madrid by nightfall.

Our hotel reservations in Segovia does not include breakfast. J.J. and I just walk two minutes to McCafé to for a cup of coffee and croissant.

Our lunch is more elaborate, as we learned to wait until 1:30 pm, still early for Spaniards. Our lunches are served in sit down restaurants. We usually have a Menu del Día (set menu for the day).

There are 5 choices for our first course, 5 choices for our main course, drink, dessert and coffee. My green salad and squid were excellent. J.J. loved his clams with potatoes for starter and a baked beef for his main course. His leche flan dessert and my melon in season was a perfect finish to our sumptuous lunch. We paid $30 for the 2 of us. We skipped our coffee and returned to our hotel room to rest.

Here are our previous day’s menú del dia.

Aloha -- Cathi
