Madrid Travel Tips & Reviews

Featured Review:

Oct 2, 2016

Madrid is truly a city that never sleeps. At any hour of the day you can enjoy amazing food, great nightlife, culture in the form of a museum visit or festival and of course meet friendly, outgoing Spaniards. I also suggest taking one of your days there to take a day trip: the mountains, a nearby city like Toledo or even natural pools located near Madrid. Madrid was my home for 5 years and it has so many hidden corners and breathtaking views. Enjoy!

Madrid is Spain's capital and has great museums but I wouldn't center my trip around it.
