Here is an answer I gave for another question here asked about Madrid:
Have a nice journey,
We stayed 6 days in Madrid for my wife's workshop in the first week of April.
I was free all the days and had the chance to plan our daily trips on myself.
Here are my suggestions (not in importance order):
. Santiago Bernabeu Stadium
. Plaza de Espana
. Temple of Debod (sunset)
. Sabatini Gardens
. Plaza de Oriente
. Plaza San Miguel
. Plaza Mayor (have a drink and see the interesting costumed people)
. Eat churros in San Gines (suggested and one of the best churros) [Chocolateria San Gines]
. Puerta del Sol (bear icon + zero point)
. Calle Carmen Street
. Gran Via (walk on this nice boulevard)
. Have frozen yogurt in the shop that is opposite of Plaza de Espana&Gran Via
. Plaza de Cibeles
. Puerta del Alcala
. Park del Retiro
. See Colomb statue next Colon station
. Have a walk in Paseo del Prado
. Prado Museum
. Reina Museum (+see the top of the building)
. Have a drink and calamares in El Brillante (next to Reina Museum)
. See and have a dinner in the restaurants next to Plaza Santa Ana
I tried to group these places so that you can walk from one to another.
But I suggest you to check these places on Google Maps.
If you have a problem to find them, let me know and I can send you the exact locations.
Also I have some restaurants I can suggest if you like and interested in food and like eating :)
Let me know if you need specific details about anything related to Madrid ;)
Have a nice journey.
