    Stop At: Royal Palace of Madrid, Calle Bailen, 28071 Madrid Spain

    The largest royal palace in Western Europe is a must-visit for all.Home to the Kings of Spain from Charles III to Alfonso XIII, Madrid's Royal Palace takes us on a journey through the history of Spain. Though it is no longer the royal family's home, it continues to be their official residence.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Museo de la Catedral de la Almudena, Calle Mayor 92 Catedral de la Almudena, 28013 Madrid Spain

    This imposing church and the Royal Palace nearby form one of Madrid’s most popular tourist attractions.Madrid's cathedral, which stands in Hapsburg Madrid, has a short but tortuous history. The first plans for the church were drawn up in 1879 by Francisco de Cubas, who wanted to create a pantheon for the late Queen Maria de la Mercedes. The foundation stone was laid in 1883, but when Pope Leo XIII granted a bull in 1885 for the creation of the Madrid-Alcalá bishopric, the plans for the church were changed to become plans for a cathedral.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Prado National Museum, Calle Ruiz de Alarcon 23, 28014 Madrid Spain

    The Prado Museum, which is commemorating its 200th anniversary this year, is the crown jewel of one of the city’s most popular tourist itineraries: the Paseo del Arte, where you'll also find the Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofía museums. The Prado's walls are lined with masterpieces from the Spanish, Italian and Flemish schools, including Velázquez’ Las Meninas and Goya’s Third of May, 1808. Its collection comprises 8,600 paintings and over 700 sculptures, so we recommend deciding what you want to see before stepping into the museum. If you are short on time, the Prado's website suggests three itineraries, lasting 1, 2 and 3 hours and covering the museum's most important masterpieces.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Templo de Debod, Calle Ferraz 1, 28008 Madrid Spain

    This is an Egyptian temple dating back to the 2nd century BC, transported to Madrid’s Cuartel de la Montaña Park. The temple was donated to Spain by the Egyptian government to save it from floods following the construction of the great Aswan Dam.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Plaza Mayor, Calle Gerona 4, 28012 Madrid Spain

    This arcaded square located in the historical centre of the city is the heart of Hapsburg Madrid.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Parque del Retiro, Plaza Della Indipendecia 7, 28001 Madrid Spain

    El Retiro Park is the real star of this neighbourhood, bordered by Calle de Alcalá and Calle O’Donnell to the north, Doctor Esquerdo to the east, Avenida del Mediterráneo and Paseo de Reina Cristina to the south, and Calle de Alfonso XII to the west.
    The park was developed under the Catholic Monarchs, in the early sixteenth century, but the neighbourhood itself is much younger. With an increasingly larger population in the late nineteenth century, the city expanded. The layout of Retiro is similar to that of neighbouring Barrio de Salamanca, featuring perpendicular streets with wide pavements, some of them embellished as attractive boulevards, like Ibiza or Alcalde Sainz de Baranda. It’s basically a residential area but, being so close to the centre of Madrid, it’s borrowed some of its business and shopping character.
    Visitors coming to Madrid can’t miss El Retiro Park and its surroundings, filled with cultural attractions, restaurants and shops.

    The best way to see the city. I was tempted to hire a bike on my own but I'm so pleased I didn't. Our guide, Carlos was very informative and patient. I learned lots and enjoyed the ride.
