A weekend in Madrid: what to see and where to go

Madrid is the perfect city for a long weekend of spring! It is strongly known for its mild climate, the Spanish capital is a candidate to be the destination of your next city break. Thanks to some encyclopedias we can start immediately to organize our days in Madrid.

Wanting to spend two days in Madrid, you can start from Gran Vía, the cultural and commercial heart of the city, then watching the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, the Jardines Sabatini or the Catedral de la Almudena. For lunch you could bear with the products of the Mercado de San Miguel in putting a stop digestive program to the Parque del Retiro. If you havent book your hotel yet, do not panic; you can find cheap and adequate hostels in the center of Madrid.

By returning your ways to Plaza de España do not forget to stop at the Fuente de la Cibeles, to the Puerta de Alcalá and Metropolis building. There is just enough time for a coffee or a drink at the Circulo de Bellas Artes and it’s time to think about dinner, maybe in Las Tablas, where the meal is accompanied by a flamenco show.

For the second day, put on your best dress and throw it on the culture with a ride to the Paseo del Prado, which houses the three most important museums of the city: the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. A relaxing stop at the Botanical Garden to better assimilate the many received stimuli and then off to go for shopping in Malasaña, the area between Chueca and Argüelles, the center of the so-called madrileña nightlife of the 80s: the shops you will not miss for sure and will keep you company until supper. What you can enjoy, as your parting from the beloved culinary Madrid, on the rooftop terrace of the hotel restaurant Room Mate Óscar.
