No visit to Madrid could be considered complete without a trip to the country’s national museum, the Museo Nacional del Prado, known locally as “The Prado.” Located in the heart of the city, the museum showcases the finest collection of Spanish art under one roof. Having secured a better sense of the country’s national character through art, it may be time for a trek to the Royal Palace, official home of Felipe VI, Spain’s first new king in nearly 40 years. For even more dazzling examples of architecture, check out the Puerta de Alcalá, a breathtaking monument crowned by a grand entrance gate.
You can make the tour as long or short as you want. Best of all, the adventure happens at your pace. You can stop for photos, take detours, grab a coffee at one of the city’s many outdoor cafes or sample some delectable delights at a tapas bar. You could also blaze your own trail and explore the city streets, neighborhoods and parks on your own.
