Today after the buffet breakfast, meet your guide for your private walking tour. Some of the attractions include the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, an imposing 15th-century Franciscan monastery and church that was founded in the heart of the Jewish quarter by the Catholic monarchs Isabel and Fernando. The highlight is the amazing two-level cloister, complete with elaborate arches and gargoyles that surround a lush garden with orange trees and roses. The next site to be visited is the Sinagoga del Tránsito. This magnificent synagogue was built in 1355 and now houses the Museo Sefardi. The main prayer hall has been restored, and the numerous exhibits provide an insight into the history of Jewish culture in Spain. At Saint Mary's Cathedral, you will see an impressive example of medieval Gothic architecture. The highlight of all, however, is the sacristía (sacristy), which contains a gallery with paintings by such masters as El Greco, Zurbarán, Caravaggio, Titian, Raphael and Velázquez.
After the tour, there's still time to explore on your own. Right at the top of the town on a hill overlooking the city, you'll find Toledo's Alcázar. Built before the 3rd century, it's one of the oldest buildings in the city, and has been a fortress, a palace and, now, holds the magnificent Army Museum.
