Madrid, Spain’s capital city, is a fantastic place to visit. What it doesn’t have in coastline, the city makes up for in culture and entertainment. Brightsun Travel has exclusive holidays to Madrid all year round, with excellent flight deals and hotel packages. Let’s start in our favourite neighbourhood, the Latin Quarter, which is the oldest part of the city. Here you can admire beautiful old buildings and integrate into a very ‘local’ way of life in Madrid. On a Sunday, the neighbourhood famously comes alive with a huge antique and flea market, El Rastro, where you can shop for literally anything you can think of – from sarongs from India, to old antiques and furniture. Throughout the week in the Latin Quarter you can join locals in bars spilling out on to the pavement, and dine at some of the newest restaurants in the city. By day you can sample some of the best seafood you can get in the city at La Cebada market, and at night, head to San Anton market and you could dine at one of its many trendy pop up bars and cafes.
Exploring the rest of Madrid by foot is a dream. From the Latin Quarter, you could stroll to the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía art museum in under 30 minutes, then through the Parque del Buen Retiro, a beautiful park to the east of the city (which is not to be missed), before reaching the hub of the city centre. Visit the Círculo de Bellas Artes and you could explore some seriously good art work and sip cocktails from its roof top bar, Tartán Roof, for the best views in the city. Then, stroll around the exclusive neighbourhood of Salamanca, and you could shop at high end boutiques and dine in world class restaurants. And if you fancy a side trip from Madrid, you could take advantage of Spain’s high-speed train network and reach Barcelona in just over 2 hours.
