The cosmopolitan capital of Spain is a popular city break for those looking for great shopping, superb restaurants and lively nightlife. Thanks to the huge range of attractions and activities, parks, restaurant-lined squares, outdoor markets and the excellent transport system (not to mention a wide range of great-value hotels to suit all tastes and budget), Madrid holidays make for a perfect long weekend with friends, family and partners.

 

Benefitting from the sizzling Spanish temperatures, Madrid is one of the top city break destinations in Europe. As well as boasting amazing architecture, rich culture, sensational cuisine and cool bars and clubs, Madrid is a shopper's paradise with a huge range of shops and malls right in the centre of the city. Mercado San Miguel, Plaza de Cibeles, Retiro Park, Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio Real) are some of the best places to visit during your holidays in Madrid. You can also walk along the Gran Vía and visit some of the biggest museums and small galleries in the town if you fancy a burst of culture.

 

The best time to visit Madrid is during the months of May in spring and October in autumn, however, the weather in May is pretty balmy with an average temperature of 16°C, when the city experiences maximum footfall. Madrid-Barajas Airport is nearest to the city, located in the northeast of Madrid and only 12km from Madrid City centre. And it's fairly accessible from all major tourist spots of Spain, too.

Sigthseeing in the City

 

 

Sigthseeing in the City

As with any city break, it’d be a shame not to make time to tick off the major sights. Madrid is choc-a-block with monuments, landmarks and architectural highlights to see, so why not make a day of it? Take a sunset stroll to Puerta de Alcala and be sure to stop by the Royal Palace and the Catedral de la Almudena.

Treat Your Tastebuds

 

Treat Your Tastebuds

Try out the Tapas Walking Tour trailing through Madrid’s traditional bars and restaurants and indulge in the hearty Madrileño cuisine. Treat yourself to a taste of Andalusian sherry, cider from Asturias, chorizo in cider, octopus from Galicia and a variety of regional specialities. If you’re still feeling peckish, try the 'tostadas' and great meats, cheeses, salads and tapas.

 
Casa de Campo Park

 

Casa de Campo Park

With weather this good, make your way to the beautful Casa de Campo park. Crowned as Madrid’s biggest park this picturesque piece of land is a whopping five times larger than Central Park and you’ll find Madrid Zoo, Madrid Arena and sports facilities amongst its luscious landscaped gardens. You can ever hire boats on its lake.

 
Get the Flamenco Flair!

 

Get the Flamenco Flair!

Feast your eyes on flashes of colourful silk and sequins as you watch the fiery flamenco dancers in the city’s tablaos and theatre shows.

Soak up the Culture

Head to Madrid’s alluring Art Triangle to see three of the city’s major museums and galleries, Museo del Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza.
