This is a good way to walk to the museums from the Plaza Cibeles. There is shade and seats and it is much nicer than walking on the crowded sidewalks.

Not a ton of locations on this walk, depending on how long you define the distance. The museum, obviously, is a huge draw. The hop-on, hop-off bus also travels along this street, so that would be the best bang for your buck to buy a one-day ticket, unlimited use for that bus and just get on and off at locations... More

This place is great to grab a bite and sit down to people watch, or just to walk around and kill time. The gardens are beautiful!

This is one of the best museums in the world. I would suggest planning ahead which works of art you want to see and locate them in the museums map because the museum is huge.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
