One of the things that I love the most is to visit cities on a weekend to run away from London and Madrid is a city that I specially love –I have visited Spain’s capital many times and I always find it romantic somehow.
In this short break, I had the chance to walk the city and explore its incredible streets and food spots; I stayed close to Plaza del Sol and that is key to move easily within a walking distance (I have to say I barely used the public transport! something you can only dream about in London).
What to do in Madrid
- Get lost among the streets of Malasaña and its amazing scene. Not to miss either: Latina neighbourhood, very tendy.
- Visit the Temple of Debod –a true Egyptian temple in the heart of Madrid
- Go shopping in Gran Vía and in Serrano Street
- Look up! Literally, look up; Madrid’s architecture is stunning. Spoiler alert: you might fall in love.
What can be a nicer plan that taking a walk around Madrid’s parks to admire the sunset with your partner? Okay, it’s having tapas, but it is nice to do some exercise between hours.
