    Beautiful museum with great art works from the great masters. Last visited around 40 years ago. Very well spread out and great service from every member of the museum.. We need a wheelchair to see it in comfort and that made it so relaxing since its such a large museum. Only queued for a few minutes before opening for tickets.

    The whole stadium is being renovated and so hoardings all around. We got off the hop on hop off bus for a while just to soak in the atmosphere as it was a match day and therefore couldnt have tour. Do check before you travel as I think the renovations will be ongoing for a while and therefore tours are not operating at the moment

    This palace is beautifully decorated and you can't help but be in awe of the enormous chandeliers throughout the tour. Although the King and his family do not reside here, it is still used for business purposes and welcoming dignitaries. The furniture and rooms are just lovely.

    We loved it, plenty of benches to sit and expositions to enjoy. No issue taking photos in the gallery. Free cloakroom service.

    Being a Picasso fan, I was anxious to view the art in this museum and was not disappointed. A different style of artists than the Prado, this museum is naturally more modern and delightful. 2 hours was sufficient to me.

    We got tickets having seen the London Sorolla exhibition and just loved his work. Definitely worth a visit to both the museum and the gardens. Not overly busy and very beautiful.

    We were joined on our visit to the Plaza by dozens of armed police and about 20 Manchester City fans in jovial mood. The square is a big place so there was room for all of us. As the fans were in the process of heading off to one of the most remarkable defeats of all time, we decided to dine at one of the outdoor restaurants. The service was good but the food did not match either the ambience of the surroundings, or the incredible comeback of Real Madrid later in the evening.

    I would preface this by saying, "may not be for everyone". But I loved it.

    I'm not sure how much in the exhibits was original artifacts vs. reconstructions--if they were originals, it's impressive. There is a video at the beginning that takes you from prehistory in Spain through now--this is only my second trip to Spain, so I wasn't aware of the very early human occupation of the Iberian peninsula, or the may influences on the Peninsula from various outside areas.

    I found the exhibits well laid out. The Roman part of the museum was particularly good--surprising # of mosaics from Navarre, and a beautiful atrium layout of Roman sculptures and artifacts.

    I had trouble using the museum's app--I tried to download it, but every time I tried to play a selection, it would act like I never told it to download, so I finally gave up. However, their were plenty of written explanations in both Spanish and English, so I went with that. I wouldn't bother with the app. there were no audioguides available when we were there.

    Shop district with trendy shops and nice streets to walk on a sunny afternoon. Plenty of cafes to stop by and located close to several attractions. Recommended after visiting one of the several good museums of Madrid

    Very beautiful and touristic neighborhood in Madrid. Well known for it's nightlife and artistic streets. In addition, you must pay a visit on Sunday morning when there is the local market El rastro.

    Attractive open space when not filledwith traffic where the Calle Alcala crosses the Paseo de Castellaneo. Several attractive buildings and an impressive fountain in the middle with a Celtic like figure i a chariot. You may be pushed tlo get a decent photo of the fountain.

    We visited this market on our first night in Madrid. It was a great way to introduce us to the foods of Madrid. It has a beautiful atmosphere and it was so much fun to walk around and sample the many offerings the stalls had to give. It can be very crowded and can be hard to find a seat, especially if you have more than two people in your group. We went twice on our week visit to Madrid. Once for dinner, and once for tapas and drinks before going on to our dinner destination. I felt it was best to go for just tapas and drinks.

    A great open space with a wide trail for walking, running, or cycling. There were a number of smaller playgrounds along the route and you really only have to cross 1 major road along a 6km stretch. We rented a family cycle from Eco Moving Sports at an hourly rate and joined the crowd along the river.
