The capital of Spain, Madrid is everything you could imagine it to be and more. A bustling metropolis jam packed with interesting sights, shops, eateries and more.
There's so much to see and do here that you'll never get it all done in just a weekend and that is why people return again and again. Visit the city's beautiful parks, enjoy the view across the city from the rooftop terrace of Circulo de Bellas Artes, but ensure to get there early if you want to enjoy the sunset over the city with a drink in hand as it's a very popular spot.
Shop til you drop along the Gran Via, the main tourist artery through Spain's capital, grab a cafe con leche in one of the pretty terrace cafes in Plaza Mayor, marvel at the huge Royal Palace, find a bargain at the market, head to a gallery or visit the museums. Maybe even take in a show or a concert.
There's so much going on in Madrid you really won't want to leave.
