Madrid is a vibrant city with a rich history. Tapas tours are a great way to learn about the culture and history of this captivating city.
The world-famous tapa is just one of the many reasons why Madrid is such a dynamic place. The Spanish word "tapas" means "lid" or "tapa", which in turn refers to the fact that these small plates of food are served on top of slices of bread or on toothpicks. The purpose? To cover your glass of wine so you don't lose any precious drops when you drink it!
