Popular places to visit in Madrid
It’s been called the place where modernity meets antiquity. Historic parks and plazas stand next to ultramodern monolithic skyscrapers. A walk along the city streets takes you from yesterday through tomorrow. While it is similar to other European capitals in that it offers visitors a rich cultural experience amid a contemporary backdrop, Madrid is a completely unique cosmopolitan destination that begs to be experienced. The mix of past and present allows you to view history up close and embrace the current Madrid, which is fanatic about football, fine food, and high fashion. At some of the premier museums on the planet, you can view royal-family jewels and masterworks brought to life by some of the most prolific artists in history, then walk across the street to the comfort of modern technology conveniences and luxurious amenities at the best hotels in Madrid. And, when you book your Madrid vacation package through Travelocity, you’ll save enough to take in everything on your itinerary—whether it be catching a Real Madrid soccer match, socializing over tapas at a sidewalk café, or adding to your wardrobe with a purchase at an upscale boutique. We bundle your airfare and accommodations together into Madrid vacation deals that help keep your money where it belongs…in your pocket. Where Are the Best Places to Stay in Madrid?
Surrounding Madrid are a number of great places to stay, particularly if you prefer to be close to the airport, or want to spend much of your time outdoors in areas such as the Upper Manzanare Basin Regional Park. However, to truly taste all of the city mouthwatering flavors, the best bet for your Madrid getaway is to stay downtown. Here are some of our favorite hotels in Madrid’s central district: Hotel Atlántico – Step outside the lobby doors onto Calle Grand Via, and the entire city of Madrid is at your feet. Shops and cafes await, and Metro stations are nearby to take you to points across town. Bathed in upscale elegance, the Hotel Atlántico delivers modern amenities behind a classic European façade. Once night falls, enjoy a cocktail—with a side of spectacular city views—at Bar-Terraza before retiring to your impeccably furnished guestroom. Regina – The contemporary décor and modern innovations stand in stark contrast to the Regina’s granite exterior—not unlike Madrid, itself. White linens and furnishings with classic black highlights help to create a very bright feel the idyllic guestrooms. While Madrid has hundreds of eateries for you to visit, a meal at the Regina’s Restaurant Amayra is a must, thanks to its Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and wine cellar featuring over 60 varieties. The Westin Palace – Located in the Golden Triangle of Art, the Westin is a short stroll from some of the most distinguished museums in Europe. The hotel was originally built in 1912, and still boasts the iconic “Palace Hotel” neon sign upon its rooftop. The service and hospitality of the Westin and its four on-site bars and restaurants are the only things that can exceed the property’s glamour, refinement, and luxury. Hotel Ritz – More than simply another hotel in Madrid’s Golden Triangle, the Ritz is a celebration of opulence. As much a palace fit for royalty as it is a luxury tourist hotel, you could get lost in the high style, charm, and elegance. If the extravagant accommodations aren’t enough to make you feel like a member of the aristocracy, perhaps a therapeutic session at the on-site Bodyna Wellness Centre will do the trick. Major Attractions
Madrid vacations offer the precious chance to view masterpieces you studied in Art Appreciation class and have often admired from afar. Visit one—or all—of the museums that make up the Golden Triangle of Art: Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. As you stroll along the city’s streets, you’ll pass the Royal Palace of Madrid, Cibeles Palace, the expertly manicured gardens in BuenRetiro Park, and the Paseo del Prado with its impressively detailed fountains. The city of Madrid has more than enough points of interest to fill out any vacation. That said, you still may want to find a car rental so you can enjoy a few daytrips to the nearby cities of Segovia, Toledo, and Guadalajara. Festivals and Events
The most popular time for festivals is from April to October, with events happening nearly every week. May features the local celebration of the Fiestas del 2 de Mayo, where throngs gather to celebrate the city’s heritage with live music, festive dancing, and bull fights. May also sees the beginning of the month-long celebration of Fiestas de San Isidro—the patron saint of Madrid—which give you the chance to experience traditional local dress and cultural cuisine.
