Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

Madrid is great city to visit to get a mix of Spanish culture and vibe but also take a day trip outside Madrid to make the most of the stunning opportunities nearby. My other top tips are:

1. Take advantage of the 10-ride pass on the Madrid Metro which has clean, modern trains.

2. Madrid takes the afternoon Siesta seriously, so double check opening times in the afternoon and be prepared for later lunches and evening meals than usual.

3. Madrid can get very hot during May- October, make sure you have your sunscreen, hat and plenty of water on hand.
