Bienvenidos a Madrid, amigos! Spain’s capital might not have the towering spires of Barcelona or the racing bulls of Pamplona, but Madrid’s attributes are nothing to sneeze at: The city is artistic, stunning and perfectly manicured.
If Madrid wore a kitschy T-shirt to happy hour, it would read “We fancy”. And you, too, fair traveller will feel fancy when you visit this Spanish locale. Book flights to Madrid on lastminute.com.au, and you’ll be living the good life without spending your rent money.
When your plane’s wheels touch down in Madrid, you’re just 15km from the centre of the city. Climb aboard a Line 8 train on the metro system, and you’re in the heart of El Foro in less than 15 minutes. Check into one of the top Madrid hotels, then hop on the subway or hail a taxi to begin your adventure. The city also has a network of buses that help you navigate your way from place to place.
If you’re on one of our cheap flights to Madrid landing in the morning, make a beeline for El Retiro Park. Somehow this 125-hectare space manages to remain firmly green and serene, despite being in the middle of a metropolis. Nine out of 10 doctors also say it’s the perfect place to shake of your jet lag (*we think).
Then, spend your afternoon walking through the Prado National Museum or the Royal Palace of Madrid.
Landing in the evening? Freshen up and go straight to the Plaza de Santa Ana or La Latina districts, where bars and nightclubs are popping until well after midnight.
To live like a local is to eat like a local, at least in Madrid. If you want to fit in, sit yourself down at a tapas restaurant and get to work. Many bars will give you free tapas if you order a drink. Still hungry? Looks like it’s time to tip back another glass. Cheers!
Book Madrid flights with lastminute.com.au, and you’ll have enough money left over to explore the rest of Spain. Our Barcelona holiday packages come to mind…
