Whether it's high-end shopping, fascinating museums, famous football stadiums, and buildings of architectural brilliance, Madrid has something for everyone. Nearly all of the most famous tourist areas are located in the centre of the city including Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, and Plaza de Colón. Then when the sun sets at the end of the day, Madrid stays awake with an excellent array of night-life including bars, restaurants, clubs and live stage-shows.

Spain’s capital city is the perfect place to soak up authentic Spanish culture! Small enough to walk around easily, yet with loads to see and do, it’s friendlier than many of Europe’s capitals and plenty to offer visitors by day or by night.
Try one of Madrid’s Asturian “sidrerias” – cider bars – for the best cider you’ll ever taste! Watch the locals pour it from bottles at shoulder height into a glass held at waist height! You’ll usually get free tapas to go with it, so makes for a fun and cheap afternoon’s entertainment and meal all rolled into one.
