Each semester NYU Madrid organizes several day and weekend trips outside of Madrid to introduce you to Spanish culture. These trips are included in your tuition. Some of these excursions are required components of specific classes.


Day Trips

Segovia acueduct

“Loved the combinations of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian culture. I didn’t know anything about Segovia before the trip, but it’s an incredible city and I was happy we got to go to it.”

Monasterio El Escorial

“Definitely worth it. A place I don’t think I would’ve visited if it weren’t for NYU Madrid.”

Toledo vista

“Lots of different styles of art from Renaissance to Baroque. My favorite was the Mezquita Cristo de la Luz. Great to see how the religion of Islam and Christianity are in one place.”

Overnight Trips

Students will sign up for one of the following overnight trips: Córdoba, Bilbao and La Rioja, or Salamanca and Ávila.

Mezquita cordoba

“I thought it was incredible and very interesting to learn about the Mosque’s history and the various additions that were made throughout the years. I’ve never seen anything like it.”


“While all the architecture we saw in Salamanca was incredible and I did not want to leave the Casa de las Conchas, the university was my favorite part due to the explanation we got of the painted doctorate declarations on the walls and the way the steps of the university were symbolic of every step a student needs to take to achieve more and more in life.”


guggenheim bilbao


“The Museo Guggenheim was amazing!! It has been one of my dreams to come here since my sophomore year of high school, I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity."
