Why you should go

Madrid is arguably one of the most vibrant, lively and exciting cities in Europe. The stunning Spanish capital’s history dates back to the Roman Empire and the city itself is built on the banks of the Manzanares River. With countless exquisite eateries on offer and abundance of Spanish wine, it is the perfect place for foodies to spread their wings and sample all that’s on offer. Culture vultures will also be in their element - Madrid is full of striking architecture, which can be appreciated from the city’s many squares. Plaza Mayor is the ideal place for people-watching and has its history carved beneath lamp posts. Plaza de Santa Ana, meanwhile, has a longstanding literary history and, in the past, was where the great intellectuals of the day met.

If intellectual pursuits are what you’re after, the Museo del Prado is worth a visit as it boasts one of the world’s premier art galleries. It does not, however, house Picasso’s Guernica – that honour goes to Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. It’s hard to pick just one amazing building in Madrid, but if there’s one in particular you cannot miss, it’s the Basílica de San Francisco El Grande. The baroque basilica is one of the grandest churches in Spain and the frescoed dome is the fourth largest in the world.

For a beautiful chilled day out and the perfect destination for a picnic, the Parque del Buen Retiro features beautiful gardens, marble monuments and stunning buildings and dates back to the 17th century. If sports are more your thing, you’ll want to visit the respective homes of top football teams Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid.

When you should go

Madrid is the perfect place for a long weekend city break at any time of year. Summers are typically warm and sunny, whereas winters can be quite chilly. Spring and autumn tend to be the most popular seasons with tourists due to the mild and pleasant weather – perfect for doing plenty of sightseeing! No matter when you decide to visit the Spanish capital, there are countless sites to see and restaurants and bars to enjoy, regardless of the time of year.

Where you should stay

No matter your style or budget, Madrid has a wide variety of hotels, hostels and everything in between. The bustling Gran Via is full of energy, so staying anywhere nearby will mean you’re right in the centre of the city. La Latina is one of the top areas in Madrid for being amongst the best tapas spots, and Malasaña is definitely one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the city if you want to be amongst the hipsters!

Don’t miss!

Looking for something a little different to do during your time in Madrid? Why not try out one (or all!) of the following:

  • Sobrino de Botin – who doesn’t want to visit the oldest restaurant in the world?! If you’re a big meat-eater, this old-world Spanish eatery is famous for its suckling pig.
  • Juan de la Cosa Map – once discovered by accident in a Paris bookshop, this is the earliest known map to show America ever found in the world. An absolute must-see!
  • Templo Debod - if you’re a sucker for a sunset, this beautiful Egyptian temple is one of the best spots in Madrid. Don’t forget your camera!
