I walked the Paseo del Prado several times during my week stay. It's shady, interesting, beautiful and provides a safe and easy walking route to several tourist stops.

The Paseo del Prado is a fantastically grand avenue with a park running down the centre with lots of statues and fountains.

You can't help but take a stroll along Paseo del Prado. It's where all the major museums are. The great thing about this street is that it has a park in the middle which offers escape from the hot Madrid sun.

Just a beautiful, tree lined street down the heart of Madrid. I wish there were some better food options in close proximity, but that is to be expected with so many museums and hotels on the street.

This is a wide and tree-lined street where the top art museums in Madrid are located. Central walkways, well removed from traffic offer many places to sit with alcoves, gardens, fountains and magnificent trees, offering shade and coolness on a hot day. This is a wonderful feature of Madrid and a refuge from the manic and busy traffic.
