    Madrid is a great walking city so make sure you locate yourself suitably. Reserve two days for the museums. Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyseen Bromeza. Half a day is good for plaza mayor and puerta del sol. The other half you can spend at the palacio real. A good walk would be along paseo del prado.
    All in all i would spend atleast 4 nights in madrid. Again make sure you stay in the historical part of the city. over 6 years ago

    I suggest Botin restaurant, it's the oldest restaurant in Madrid and the food is reasonably priced and good tasting. Also, the Reina Sofia has a few Piccaso's to view. And San Miguel Mercado is fun for people watching and Tapas! over 6 years ago

    Don't miss the Retiro on a Saturday or Sunday. It is madrid's ( safe version) Central Park.It is good for a couple of hours of lazy strolling in the gardens and people watching. Check out the rose garden- you can get some great macro shots on your camera. about 6 years ago

    Agree with other posts. Also Madrid is a great base ci for day trips. I highly recommend Toledo and Segovia. I went to Toledo by train, make a reservation. I took the bus to Segovia. both places easy to go on your own and not pay for tour. I did take a half day bus tour to El Escorial and it is lovely. Other day trips, that ought be long, but worth visiting are Seville and Cordoba. about 6 years ago
